Speedcast Delivers Connectivity to Mining Site in Western Australia for Leading Iron Ore Producer


 Dec. 11, 2019

Speedcast International Limited has completed installation and commissioning of connectivity services for a leading iron ore producer in remote Western Australia. The 130Mbps service meets the site's increasing requirement for data connectivity to optimize mining operations and support crew welfare at the +300-worker site. 

The low latency satellite service provides a new level of operational efficiencies as well as giving crew access to streaming services. The installation at the mining site required motorized antennas capable of tracking two satellites as they cross from horizon to horizon and handing off service between them to maintain uninterrupted connectivity.

"The connectivity demands of mining are increasing fast as companies use information technology to increase their productivity," said Erwan Emilian, EVP Enterprise & Emerging Markets, Speedcast.  "High-quality connectivity also makes life at the mine a lot less challenging for the hardworking people onsite. Speedcast views mining as a key growth segment and is proud to be contributing to the success of one of Australia's leading producers by delivering these low latency 'fibre-in-the-sky' services."
