Mining’s Next Horizon Webinar Series: Part 5 - Mine Site Connectivity – Enabling the Digital Revolution
This webinar series examines the rapid changes occurring in the industry and creates a vision of the future of mining
The mining industry is ushering in a new way of operating, transformed by disruptive innovations, advanced digital technologies and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This webinar series examines the rapid changes occurring in our industry and creates a vision of the future of mining.
We are on our way to the connected mine.
The industry is striving to create advanced operations where convergence of information technology and operating technology systems into a unified network infrastructure allows for seamless connectivity and information sharing across the mining enterprise.
However, the unique nature of the mining industry, which is characterised by remote sites and operations at extreme depths, means that considerable challenges are faced in creating a connected enterprise.
This webinar will explore:
- The vision of the connect mine
- Challenges in the pursuit of connected mining operations
- Developments in network infrastructure and communications systems for mining operations
- Creating an enterprise that leverages operating technology and the IIoT to drive operational improvements in mining
