Reliable radio communications is crucial in industries involved with natural resources. There are numerous fields such as mining, forestry, oil and natural gas that rely on radio communications to control and coordinate the many facets of their business. Operations extend from exploration and extraction to transportation and processing. Control room staff and radio operators need to communicate with operations and maintenance staff, supervisors, workboats, helicopters and emergency crews.
The key, therefore, is to integrate the available communications mediums in a simple and intuitive manner, controlled from a reliable and efficient radio management system with the ultimate purpose of increasing safety and efficiency.
How Radio Continues to Drive Business in the Resources Industry
This White Paper explores 5 of the lessons learnt from the world leaders in resources – including the oil & gas and mining industries.
Omnitronics provides a number of solutions to meet these needs:
- The 619 Range of Audio Bridges enables interoperability between frequency bands and provide a simple way of rebanding and/or narrowbanding a network
- The IPR Range of VoIP adapters/gateways for connecting existing Analog Equipment via an IP network and providing the number of benefits RoIP gives organizations.
- The DX-Altus Radio Management System which provides phased upgrades from analog to digital protocols, interoperability between protocols and complete redundancy, amongst many other benefits.
- The DX-Altus also compatible with digital features such as Emergency Management, Lone Worker and System Diagnostics. All important features to ensure a safe and efficient working environment.
- RediTALK-Flex dispatch console for small to medium sized dispatch centers who want the powerful functionality of digital radio and the flexibility of RoIP but without the complexity of a server.
The types of Resources organizations Omnitronics can provide solutions for include:
- Oil & Gas
- Drilling Platforms
- Process Control
For examples of our solutions, see our Case Studies.
We'll find the perfect system for your individual needs.
Use Case Connecting Two-Way Radio Repeater Sites Using IPWhen dealing with multiple sites using analog two-way radio that are far apart, connecting repeater sites using IP is an easy way to join communications between them. The process to join...
Use Case High Path Loss Environments In two-way radio communications environments where UHF and VHF signals cannot pass through walls or obstacles, line-of-sight communication is often deemed necessary to overcome radio signal path loss, but...
After almost 10 years of reliable operation, one of the the largest above-and below-ground gold mining operations in Western Australia has recently upgraded their DX-64 to the DX-Altus Digital Radio Management System. The upgrade was conducted in a timely &...
When Anglo American’s Capcoal operation wanted to upgrade to a P25 system, the transmission of vital emergency tones had to be addressed. When it comes to keeping workforces safe, mining operations really put the ‘critical’ in ‘critical communications’. Whether above...
Anglo American’s Capcoal coal mining operation in the Queensland Bowen Basin, installed the DX-Altus Digital Radio Management System for managing their mine radio communications including Emergency and Blast Warnings over their P25 Radio System. Customisable blast and...
