Inmarsat has provided the mining company with its Resource Exploration Solution, delivering the benefits of Inmarsat’s high-speed Land Xpress (LX) service as a managed service. The managed service approach means that Inmarsat manages the hardware delivery, training, installation, licensing and regulatory approvals, as well as guaranteeing the uptime of the solution.
Operating in the resilient and high-speed Ka-band, Inmarsat’s LX service offers powerful, reliable and highly secure connectivity anytime, anywhere, with download speeds of up to 16Mbps. This means the team can stay connected at all times, no matter how remote they might be.
Joe Carr, Director of Mining Innovation at Inmarsat, commented: “We are providing a comprehensive managed connectivity service to the mining company for their global exploration teams. With our high-speed LX service in field, staff can access reliable connectivity regardless of where they are. The solution is fully mobile and takes advantage of Inmarsat’s global connectivity, so that when the teams move across borders and into new environments they can continue to use a single service.
“Resource Exploration Solution is a managed service, which means that for a fixed monthly fee, the global exploration teams can avoid the hassle of sorting out new connectivity solutions in every country they operate in.”
