While focus is often placed on automation and productivity applications, many mine operators still struggle to deliver basic business systems to remote mine operations. With business systems such as SAP essential for daily operations, the remote location must have the same reliable, high performance access to these applications as corporate HQ. Datasat designs and delivers multi-service remote mine site communications infrastructure with corporate networking at the core.
