AUSTRALIA – Inmarsat, the global mobile satellite communications provider and Auxilium, a leading Australian mining technology solutions company, have established a formal partnership to deliver the most effective Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and communications solutions for Australian mining companies.
The partnership will see Auxilium deploying satellite connectivity from Inmarsat in its IIoT solutions. This will ensure that mining companies can access IIoT and communications services regardless of how remote their location, and without the need to invest significant sums in building a terrestrial communications infrastructure in order to connect their mining operations.
Auxilium designs and manufactures technically advanced mining equipment, technology and services to support high value mining and construction assets. It deploys satellite connectivity to enable the seamless transition of data from mine site to the control centre, which can be thousands of kilometres apart.
Inmarsat’s L-band satellite network offers the most reliable, secure connectivity for IIoT applications globally. With satellite availability up to 99.9%, rugged and energy efficient terminals, and low latency data transmission, it is the ideal solution for remote monitoring and automation applications.
By combining Inmarsat’s award-winning network and Auxilium’s innovative solutions, mining businesses will be able to benefit from operational efficiencies and enhanced profitability regardless of how far they are from their head office.
Previously, organisations, particularly those of medium or junior size, have struggled to justify the cost of installing terrestrial connectivity networks in remote locations, or have suffered with unreliable satellite connectivity. This partnership will give Auxilium’s customers access to the world’s broadest and most reliable portfolio of satellite services, and will enable the provision of solutions at a lower cost, with no requirement on the part of mining companies to make significant investments in terrestrial infrastructure.
