Digital Mining Solutions

Reliable Managed Data Services to Any Site

Our mining solutions power current and next-generation technologies such as Voice over IP (VoIP), remote infrastructure monitoring, logistics management, cloud applications, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This enables you to improve mine safety and productivity and to ensure employee job satisfaction.

Meet Demands for Improved Efficiency, Safety, and Uptime

New technology is critical to the future of mining, with digital technologies promising lower operational costs and better utilisation of existing assets. Capabilities such as real-time data visualisation, analytics, automation, and virtual/augmented reality point towards improved safety, efficiency, and profitability.

Our combination of low-latency medium earth orbit (MEO), geostationary earth orbit (GEO) wide-beam, and geostationary earth orbit high-throughput satellites (GEO HTS) space assets provides managed data services to remote locations for even your most hard-to-reach operations.

Of mining companies 81% have adopted or plan to adopt cloud solutions

Ensuring a Fully Connected Mine During the Entire Operation

Whatever stage a mine is at, mining connectivity improves productivity, safety, and morale. Privately share data from sites to headquarters, enable smart devices throughout the site, and even run real-time applications like smart mining with remote or autonomous functionality.

We can set up your mining satellite connectivity network with acceptable-use policies that allow leisure and entertainment content during specific hours of the day, or for certain users to improve employee retention. By supporting video conferencing and video training, every mine becomes an extension of the head office.


Fibre-like speeds

Our high-throughput network provides internet and private network connectivity, from aggregated data rates of up to 2Gbps and beyond, directly to and throughout any mining site. This enables the latest business applications.


Cost-effective scalability

Make sure you’re not paying for capacity you don’t need or getting overwhelmed when traffic demands increase. Our solutions allow our customers to cost-effectively and dynamically scale connectivity as needed.


Multi-site coverage

Our wide coverage platforms let you manage multiple mines from a single network. Even mines owned by different clients. Each site receives a private connection, but you can manage the total network from a single Network Management System (NMS) portal.

This sets our Mining offering apart

Multi-orbit fleet

As the industry’s only multi-orbit satellite fleet, our network uniquely scales to any requirements, for greater flexibility, security, reliability, and throughput. Our geostationary (GEO) satellites provide wide coverage for multiple mines, and our medium Earth orbit (MEO) constellation provides higher speeds and lower latency by orbiting closer to Earth.


Entering operation in 2022, our next-generation MEO constellation, O3b mPOWER , will provide unprecedented flexibility, scalability, and cloud-scale reach for the most demanding next-gen smart mining applications.


Managed connectivity

We understand mining is a tough career full of challenges. Improve safety with enhanced communications and smart sensors. Increase employee welfare and retention with managed connectivity to talk to loved ones or enjoy the latest entertainment.
