InfiNet deploys high peformance wireless network for Shubarkol Komir in Kazakhstan

first_imgInfiNet Wireless, the global manufacturer of carrier-grade broadband wireless solutions, has successfully deployed a high-performance wireless infrastructure for Shubarkol Komir JSC, the largest coal producer in Kazakhstan and part of Eurasian Group (ERG). This new network effectively represents a major upgrade to the IT infrastructure and the mission-critical video-surveillance platform previously used by this energy company.The project, implemented in conjunction with InfiNet’s regional partner Informsvyaz Kazakhstan LLP (Almaty), consisted of InfiNet various wireless solutions deployed to successfully provide connectivity between 35 distant facilities which cover an area of more than 75 km2 within the territory of the Centralny and Zapadny open-pit coal mines.InfiNet’s record-breaking Point-to-Point solution, the InfiLINK 2×2, provided data transfer rates of up to 70 Mbps, as well as rates of up to 35 Mbps for Point-to-Multipoint subscriber units from the InfiMAN 2×2 portfolio, with significant room to deliver even higher capacities well into the future using the same platform. All the wireless units deployed are guaranteed to remain fully operational even during exteme temperature ranges between -55 and +60°C. “The added challenge of high levels of humidity and the presence of solid dust particles that are commonly found in the air at open-pit coal mines has been is eliminated thanks to InfiNet’s robust units and the use of a IP66-rated cameras for the CCTV element. Resistance to extreme environmental factors was crucial in the selection of InfiNet as the preferred technlogical partner for this project.”The current applications deployed by Shubarkol Komir are VoIP services, reliable internet access, a corporate information network as well as a robust and secure CCTV for monitoring field industrial facilities, thus protecting the company’s valuable assets even when deployed in remote locations.“Mining companies rely heavily on good technological platforms to ensure flawless operation and high productivity in all their sites, wherever they are located. We are always ready to implement the most complex of solutions in order to enable connectivity for hard-to-access areas and where deployment of a fibre-optic solution is too costly or simple not technically feasible. Deploying a wireless access network, with the added benefit of including a brand new video surveillance system for all our quarries, has allowed us to significantly increase the amount of data, and its reliability gathered from all our extraction sites. This has improved our productivity and our business processes,” said Аrgyn Agzamov, Deputy CIO at EurasiaTeleCom LLP (also part of ERG).Shubarkol Komir JSC is one of Kazakhstan’s largest thermal coal producers.
