A team from CCTVal has participated in the development of the Wireless Communications Guide for Open Pit Mining created by Intercorp Company.

With an emphasis on the areas that present the greatest challenges in the open-pit mine telecommunications, the new Wireless Communications Guide covers issues such as: network design and mine piloting tests.

With an emphasis on the areas that present the greatest challenges in the open-pit mine telecommunications, the new Wireless Communications Guide covers issues such as: network design and mine piloting tests.

With the aim of ensuring the integration and operational continuity of systems and equipment in the mining industry, the Technological Standards Council for Mining, "Interop", launched a Guide for "Wireless Communications in Open Pit Mining", whose objective is to deliver recommendations on best practices for the implementation of telecommunications systems.

The guide talks about the aspects that present the biggest challenges in telecommunications systems for an open-pit mine, such as network design and mine piloting tests. In addition, it provides a series of recommendations on the contracting of telecommunications services and systems.

For the Executive Director of Interop, Carlos Carmona: "today the industry has understood that technologies are fundamental to be more competitive and that to move towards an industry 4.0 through the digital transformation, guidelines and technological standards are needed to facilitate this process. With this first publication, we hope to start designing application guides that are the starting point for the further development of a standard"

The executive added that "count with ad-hoc telecommunications systems ensures the integration and operational continuity of technological applications, allowing us to evolve towards an intelligent mining where multiple developments will be used in monitoring, automation, teleoperation, Big Data, IoT, robotics, data science, simulations, cloud, sensory and artificial intelligence. All areas, concepts and innovations of the Industrial Revolution 4.0 that require interoperability ".

For his part, Juan Jara, Interop's Technological Manager, assured that "the design of mining networks is perhaps the most important factor in the success of the implementation of a telecommunications network. There are relevant factors such as a criticality analysis, multiservice, QoS and support, which must be considered when looking for a solution that responds to the network services that the mine needs. It is also essential to pilot the technologies in the tasks considering the variables of operation, and share the successes in the matter ".

The activity culminated with the intervention of Werner Creixell, associate researcher of the electronic area of ​​CCTVal, who pointed out that "we are satisfied with the work done in conjunction with Fundación Chile and its first result, the wireless communications guide for open pit mining. I believe that this document is a great step for mining to adopt standardized, interoperable technologies, and in this way move towards smart mining. "
