Recently named amongst the 100 fastest growing companies in the UK in the Investec Hot 100 list, Datasat Communications has been creating robust and reliable remote communications infrastructures in some of the world's harshest environments for 25 years. The microsite gives mining organisations access to this knowledge and experience as exploration and operations are conducted in increasingly remote and challenging environments.

Bernie Branfield, General Manager at Datasat Communications, commented: “Effective remote communications is more essential to the mining industry than almost any other sector. Companies need to access and share data intensive, bandwidth hungry applications in real time. Selecting the correct solution for any specific mine location can be extremely difficult. We hope that this microsite will help to explain the options available and how organisations can maximise their communications investment.”
