Enabling Mining & Exploration Projects around the World

NSSLGlobal has years of experience in delivering and supporting mining companies all over the world, providing “off-the-shelf” and bespoke satellite communications packages to suit the needs of the customer. Whether you’re a large corporation looking for L-, Ku- and Ka- Band across all stages of an exploration or a newly established mining firm looking for a simple service, we are here to help.

We work closely with our clients and adapt to their requirements as the operation changes or tailor our services for a specific project. With most operations taking place in remote environments, the need for reliable connectivity and robust products is at a premium.

NSSLGlobal boasts a strong portfolio of products which are tough, reliable and highly durable. As a Tier 1 Partner with Inmarsat, Iridium and Thuraya, we are in an ideal position to recommend and supply solutions designed specifically for use under harsh conditions across all stages of the project life-cycle, from the first team arriving with simple portable devices, to the established permanent sites servicing hundreds of users.

 

Exploration

Our range of mobile satellite solutions allows teams to make voice calls and send data for analysis in real time, facilitating a free flow of information between Headquarters and the Exploration team. Utilising portable units also allows companies to send fewer staff in the field, while vehicular solutions provide highly mobile communications for small teams on the move.

BGAN EXPLORER 710 Broadband

Light weight antennas are specifically designed for easy deployment and user friendliness, easy to carry and provides high capacity through put to send data for analysis. Whether a BGAN 710 or a Thuraya IP+, the terminals will keep you and your team connected to Headquarters.

 

Handsets

Whether an Iridium Extreme, Thuraya SatSleeve or IsatPhone 2, NSSLGlobal will have the ideal handset for you. Every satellite phone has clear voice quality, with many boasting additional functionalities such as SMS messaging, plain text emailing, GPS Tracking and a predefined SOS button. In addition, many of the handsets come with specifically designed docking stations for further ease.

Vehicular

Time is money! So when your team is on the move, but wishes to stay connected, the ideal solution is a vehicular antenna. Fixed to the automobile, the antenna will automatically keep you connected whilst in motion. Allowing your team to be in transit and still report back on their findings.

Development

As the site develops and the number of personnel increases, so does the demand for bandwidth and additional communication channels.

In order to accommodate more users, solutions incorporating mobile satellite terminals, satphones and deployable VSAT systems (requiring no technical skill to set up) will supply high data rates while still providing an element of flexibility to move or enhance the operation to full scale.

Our Broad-IP FlyAway VSAT product supplies broadband speeds of up to 8 Mbit/s while also providing a quick deployment through the lightweight design.

The Broad-IP FlyAway is contained within three cases with built in wheels, all of which are IATA compliant for check-in on commercial flights, meaning you can transport across continents with ease. The system is simple to deploy and can be operational within ten minutes, using our unique self-pointing application, which is supplied ready for you on the Android Smartphone included with the Broad-IP FlyAway.

The Pointing App enables users, without any technical experience, to locate the satellite and connect to the VSAT network. In addition to facilitating seamless pointing of the antenna the Smartphone app also provides extensive troubleshooting assistance as well as a web browser, email client and SIP client for VOIP calls via the antenna.

Operational

Full scale operations require high capacity with complete broadband connection capabilities for large data usage and multiple voice service, which allows all staff on-site access to communication solutions.

NSSLGlobal's products and services are built around full-scale fixed VSAT solutions, ensuring sufficient speed and capacity are supplied to meet the needs of the company to support staff on a professional and welfare basis.

 

Staff Welfare

When teams are working at long term sites in remote locations for prolonged periods, it is essential they have access to communication channels for both their work and personal lives. Staff can gain online access using electronic cards, which are purchased directly from a nominated employee, who will purchase vouchers from NSSLGlobal as an electronic code.

Remote Monitoring

The BGAN M2M Service can provide you and your company with real time data on the production line and distribution network, along with automatic alerts should anything fail. The BGAN M2M provides global, two-way IP data connectivity, for transmitting data from SCADA applications for full visibility and remote control of assets in the field.

 

With a point of presence in all the major continents providing a global reach, the flexibility to adapt to any company's individual needs and access to the best products in the market NSSLGlobal is the ideal partner for any of your satellite communication requirements.

In addition, all products and services are supported globally by our 24/7 Network Operation Centre’s, field engineers and regional support centres... providing you with local help, with a global service.
