Establishing visibility over far-flung global operations

While the long-term outlook is strong, the connected mine with integrated data flows is fundamental if miners are to meet the numerous short and medium-term challenges now facing the industry. ‘Is this operation efficient?’ ‘How much ore did I produce?’ ‘What’s the metallurgy?’ ‘Where is the replacement for the haul-truck brake system predicted to fail in the next 24 hours?’

This, however, is easier said than done. Connectivity is a constant challenge for mine operators. See how BT helps mining companies to network their operations for maximum efficiency.
