3D-P Helps a Mine in Northern Canada Become ‘Autonomy Ready’By 3D-P
A mine in Northern Canada charged 3D-P to upgrade their wireless network and make it autonomy ready. With an Autonomous Haulage System on the horizon, Cisco was selected as the wireless technology vendor. 3D-P developed a Cisco wireless network design that was not only autonomy ready, but provided redundancy and scalability, while exceeding the performance requirements of the autonomous application. The mine is located in the Northern Canadian oil-sands region. Remotely located and experiencing extreme winter weather, the mine operates a large fleet of approximately 190 haulage, loading and auxiliary equipment.
