Metalloinvest, together with MegaFon, will launch a private wireless data transmission network at the Lebedinsky mining and processing plant. Guaranteed coverage, security, as well as high speeds and low delays in data transmission will automate complex technological processes of iron ore mining and production of iron ore raw materials.
The project plans to place 13 new base stations and conduct modernization of five existing ones, new antenna-mast structures will be erected, fiber-optic lines will be laid.
The Operator will provide redundancy and wide coverage of the network coverage in places where the Company's employees and equipment are most concentrated.
Thanks to the implementation of the project, the specialists of the plant will be able to control the production indicators of machinery and equipment coming from the quarry equipment, even in the conditions of the complex relief of the field.
Our own stable network will increase labor safety by automating complex and dangerous processes for humans.
