BHP Billiton installs 960SIP Consoles to Remotely Control Pilbara Operations

The Solution

Centralised Radio Networks Control

Since 960SIP consoles can operate via IP they were able to be installed at IROC and connected to the existing IPR400’s installed across the Pilbara. In this way they now provide centralised control of a range of their radio networks. This includes the port operations in Port Hedland where than operate in parallel with an existing DX‐64 system.

Conclusion

Network For Centralisation

This example show’s how once an IP radio network it established, it is simple to expand that network for centralisation.
