Deep mining – Ensuring better IoT communications with TEMS
Connectivity in mines is crucial and presents unique challenges, which demand consistent service performance. TEMS Investigation is being used in an innovative project to implement 5G infrastructure in a subterranean mine in the northern part of Sweden. The new infrastructure offers low latency to support mission-critical communications, enabling the remote control of excavators used to collect ore. This means that operators can be safely located at the surface, while extraction continues below – making the mine safer and using resources more efficiently.
