Automation is bringing the mining sector numerous advantages in efficacies and safety, but for many organisations there is a challenge that stands in the way of fully realising its potential – connectivity.

Inmarsat’s Autonomous Backhaul Solution is a managed connectivity service that allows you to automate assets, in areas without terrestrial connectivity, without having to build mobile or fibre infrastructure.

The solution is built upon Inmarsat’s ultra-reliable satellite connectivity that allows you to kick start automation instantly, is simple to set up and you only need pay for the months you use it.
