A TOOWOOMBA-based internet company has launched its new state-of-the-art communications trailers which enhance connectivity, voice and data networks in remote areas.
Vastnet has rolled out its portable network-enhancing technology trailers catering for mine sites which require reliable internet and mobile coverage to enable digital operation models.
The solar-powered trailers can stream high-speed, independent internet and mobile networks across entire mining sites and up to 100km away.
By implementing mobile boosting technologies, Vastnet uses 4G and 3G mobile networks to supply fast, reliable internet and data to remote sites throughout Australia.
Vastnet CEO David Stevens said there was increasing demand for reliable, high-speed internet from businesses in regional and remote areas, and mining companies were no different.
“With the future of mining becoming increasingly digital, companies are requiring internet and data solutions that support new mining technologies,” he said.
“Vastnet is now providing mining companies with highspeed wireless connectivity across entire sites and direct links to other remote locations.
“Our remote communications trailer enhances existing communications infrastructure to connect Australian mining companies with highspeed wifi, providing certainty for full coverage.”
Mr Stevens said Vastnet supported mining companies to use advanced technologies such as real-time data capture, automation and autonomous vehicles.
“The evolution of the ‘digital mine’ in Australia is rapidly advancing with new technologies changing the way things get done, requiring a backbone of cutting-edge technology that can adapt to the fast pace of change,” he said.
“Mining companies are such expansive operations with huge risks attached, in terms of life, cost and the environment, that we identified the need for operators to have a reliable high-speed wireless internet and mobile network.”
Vastnet specialises in the design and supply of state-of-theart remote communications trailers, which are Australian designed, built and tested.
