Communications are at the heart of safe and productive operations in remote and underground mining environments. Operators need systems and technologies that can withstand harsh conditions and provide reliable and safe links for their workforces.

Customisation is a key requirement within the mining sector where systems architecture and the nature of operations are complex and specialised. As a manufacturer and systems developer, Simoco doesn’t just offer off the shelf solutions, but works to bring bespoke radio technologies that meet the gruelling needs of mining operators around the world.

Simoco’s skills and experience in confined space engineering and radiating coax technology are trusted to deliver comprehensive coverage and high performing radio communications.

Being able to react quickly to emergencies and identify potential problems is critical, not just to maintaining operations but to safeguard workers in the event of an emergency. Simoco’s remote monitoring services, field engineering teams, alarm and broadcast capabilities limit the threat of shut down and saves lives.

Digital solutions, such as Simoco DMR, are bringing new functionality to the mining sector increasing capacity and integrating a range of communication and telemetry services that improve efficiency and capability.
