Tait Communications develops solutions that enhance safety, increase productivity and minimise downtime in the global mining sector.

We have been designing, manufacturing, installing and supporting effective, reliable communications solutions in the mining sector for 50 years. These robust, integrated voice and data systems are the result of intensive research, in conjunction with mine operators and technology providers worldwide.

With significant experience in delivering large-scale projects, Tait has collaborated with users and partners to customise communications solutions for challenging environments.

Digital mobile radios and communication networks for the mining sector

Mining organisations worldwide continue to use well-established analogue radio networks, despite the advantages of digital technologies.

Tait provides advice and expertise in designing and managing seamless upgrades from legacy analogue networks to feature-rich digital systems.

Our Tait DMR (digital mobile radio) is a digital communications platform that delivers workforce efficiencies and operational benefits for mining operations. This narrowband technology can carry both voice and data, as well as integrate with other broadband networks for optimal communications.

Mobile communications for mining vehicles

The heavy dependence on vehicles in mining organisations demands an advanced mobile communications solution.

With so much resource associated with each vehicle and the rise of vehicle automation, mining organisations require a mobile solution to support the next generation of voice and data applications.

The Tait Unified Vehicle platform allows mining companies to leverage their existing investment in mobile radio, while adding new levels of broadband connectivity.

In addition, the Tait Unified Vehicle AppBuilder creates a platform to simply and cost-effectively run custom-built programmes for both field data and voice applications.

Rugged reliable communications for the mining industry

From industry-leading portable radios to rugged smartphones, Tait supplies the devices and networks that mining users need to complete the job safely and effectively in hazardous environments.

Our voice and data applications work together to keep your resource production moving with increased efficiency.

We also have a range of applications and features available to help improve the safety of your workforce, such as our man-down alarm and intrinsically safe devices.

Highly secure data communications networks

Cyber-crime and terrorism are growing security challenges that resource organisations must address. A data communication network provides visibility and control to anyone, so it is important that they remain secure from external sources.

All Tait platforms are built with a focus on security. Our DMR supports encryption and user authentication, access control for devices and users, as well as full logging of traffic and network access.
