How to Boost Cell Phone Signal in Mines and Mining Operations

Using cell phone communications underground also opens up new possibilities for access to other information, via company apps, for the staff.

3D Coverage Analysis Visually Predicts  Signal Coverage In The Mine

Mining operations are generally located miles from the nearest cell tower, consequently cell phone signal is weak to non existent.

Remote Cellular communications bring with it other technical problems.

Prior to designing a system to improve cell phone reception coverage, Telcosat will complete a coverage prediction analysis from the Cell Tower to the target site.

Telcosat has full in-house digital mapping services combined with our extensive technical knowledge base to design the best cellular coverage solution for your mine and mining operation.

We will demonstrate to you the level of coverage that you will get and how the system will work before you buy from us.

The image above demonstrates how cell phone coverage can be provided underground to the heart of the mining operation as well as the mine elevator shaft. All Telcosat pre sales reports detail the full bill of materials (BOM) with prices, the exact location of all installed equipment, and a diagram of the level of cell phone signal coverage that will be achieved (see the above image as an example).

Mines and Mine Operations Coverage

Mines and mining operations are generally located miles from the nearest cell tower. When you are working away from home for weeks on end it is nice to be able to talk with the family back home.

Underground mines have other more direct and serious problems related to communications and safety. While a mining operation might use a two way radio as its primary communication method, these are often of little value in the event of an underground structural collapse.

Using thin fibre optic cables, which are armour protected to military grade strength, a Telcosat DAS will provide quality cell phone service to key areas of your mining operation, or even simply so as to provide a quality form of back-up communications.
