RADWIN Selected by Large Mining Company to Connect Sites in the Mexican Desert
RADWIN’s wireless systems connect mining plants & offices spread across 30,471 acres
RADWIN, a global provider of sub-6 GHz broadband wireless solutions, have announced that a major U.S-based silver mining company has deployed RADWIN’s point-to-point and point-to-multipoint solutions to connect its main plant, offices, warehouses, truck shops and lab buildings in its mining site in Mexico which covers over 30,471 acres. All sites required broadband connectivity for video surveillance and data transmission, Internet, IP telephony and access to applications and file servers. AdN Consulting, a leading system integrator in Mexico and RADWIN’s partner, was responsible for project deployment.
Marco Antonio Lerma Córdova, Networking & IT Security Manager, AdN Consulting: “Fiber optic cable was not a feasible alternative due to the remote location of the mining site. We concluded that wireless was the best connectivity option and RADWIN was the perfect fit for this project. RADWIN’s wireless systems deliver the best technology, performance and stability at the most competitive price. Since we’ve installed them in the mining site, the systems have been working smoothly, even in the harsh desert environment.
Manuel Castellanos, RADWIN’s Managing Director, Mexico: RADWIN’s point-to-point and point-to-multipoint solutions deliver high broadband speeds and enabled the mining company to build a reliable, high performance network to keep the mine running smoothly and improve operational efficiency. Our ruggedized IP67 solutions are deployed by mining companies globally because they are carrier-grade, capable of running multiple triple-play applications and operating in the most extreme environments typical to mining sites.”
