Smart Solutions For

Mining, Oil & Gas

Wireless technologies play a crucial role in the industry environment, with more and more aspects of the operations becoming reliant on wireless technologies. This ranges from narrowband data transmissions to high-capacity systems with more and more focus on the low latency capabilities of these networks, high capacity together with the highest of reliability figures.

The need for these technologies to exist in the industries, brings the complexity of these communications system operating in the same dense area. Thus, the need for co-existence of these networks is unavoidable and it creates the need for it to be managed in a way that they do not cause co-existence problems as well as on the other side that the spectrum available in the operational area are not fully or optimally utilised.
