damm communications

Indonesia’s second-largest coal mining contractor, BUMA, selects DAMM´s rugged and reliable TETRA solutions for critical radio communication in the Open Pit Mine of Kideco.

The challenge
Working mainly in coal-production the single most important challenge for BUMA was to secure reliable and fail safe communication at anytime. Making million dollar decisions every day, workers and managers in coal mines rely heavily on communication to keep the business moving. This means that access to information and communication anytime and anywhere is key both for workers and managers.

The solution
To secure critical communication across technologies DAMM provided a dual carrier multi node outdoor system, including built-in applications such as Dispatcher, Voice and Application Gateways, as well as Group Bridge; bridging TETRA to existing analogue networks already operating in Indonesian mines. With easy integration to third-party applications such as AVL, DAMM was the ideal choice. To fulfill the need for non-critical voice and data communication, DAMM provided the TetraFlex Android Client enabling TETRA on soft terminals, in this case via WiFi.

DAMM is represented in Indonesia by Authorised System Partner Wellracom Group.

Mr S Jagyantama, managing director of Wellracom Group stated: "DAMM has a proven track record in the mining industry.
