Mining

CONNECTIVITY FOR THE MINING INDUSTRY

Galaxy’s communication solutions can provide connectivity from exploration to production. Through the evolution of the project Galaxy can provide a simple satellite/wifi solution to production management solution for both open pit and underground operations.

Galaxy understands a mine is a complex operation from the excavating, processing and sales and it requires multiple solutions that provide secure and reliable connections throughout the production process.

Galaxy solutions are scalable to expand as the project moves through the evolution from exploration to production.

SKYCARRIER AND ONE WEB LEO - SATELLITE SDWAN

SkyCARRIER is Galaxy’s 4th generation IP over satellite service designed to offer the performance of a dedicated, uncontended upload link combined with a large download capability that supports intense bandwidth requirements.

One Web LEO satellite network is Galaxy’s partner today for this new transformational technology. This network offs <70 Ms latency, up to 150 x 30 Mbps, Global coverage, unlimited throughput – LTE In The Sky!

  • Galaxy’s enterprise solution is “best of breed” compared to others
  • Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize corporate data
  • Choice of Committed Information Rate (CIR) for improved performance
  • 24/7 Support to resolve issues quickly
  • SDWANoffers failover redundancy and routable applications for maximum bandwidth efficiency

These two network management options allow customers to manage the performance of their link and have it configured to perform at its highest level and the lowest possible cost.

“The portable unit was quickly deployed by our crew and the technical support was very helpful and available. We used it for about two months and the link was very stable and dependable, we never experienced any slowdowns or disconnections during that period. The voice over IP was very clear even when the Internet was under heavy usage by the rest of the crew, we always had a clear channel to communicate (with a Canadian phone number) with our crew even in a remote area, which is very important for the safety of everyone. We were very pleased with the overall experience and we will use a SCOUT unit the next time we need an Internet and phone connection remotely!”

– Maxim Belleau, Technical Electronics Supervisor, Abitibi Geophysics Inc.
