Trakindo the Indonesia Caterpillar CAT dealer achieved a 100% WiFi coverage area over the entire BUMA Adaro mining operation areas utilizing SNC MineComms WiFi technology. A high throughput capacity, low latency and robust WiFi wireless network has been successfully designed, supplied, installed and commissioned to support the operations of the CAT MineStar Fleet Management System (FMS) installed for PT. Bukit Makmur (BUMA) at the Adaro coal mine site.
The SNC MineComms WiFi network deployed across the entire BUMA operation areas on the Adaro mine site was designed by the team of professional network Engineers at SNC Technologies a section of PT. SatNetCom. The Network design had very high criteria and objectives to achieve which were set by Trakindo and the Caterpillar teams. The MineComms requirement was specified to support over 77 100 ton OB Haulers, 15 OB Loaders and 17 Auxiliary machines for the real-time data backhaul from the mining heavy equipment FMS and machine health data backhauled over the MineComms Network back to the site Dispatch and machine health monitoring Center.
The SNC MineComms wireless network deployed includes a range of fixed, semi-fixed or combat towers and portable trailer towers housing the high capacity WiFi radios and networking equipment each supported by solar power and solar battery banks providing a sustainable and green power supply. The primary high capacity WiFi coverage areas includes the BUMA pit and dump locations. The secondary coverage areas include the coal stockpiles, park-up areas, workshops, and the major haul roads.
The overall network design employed by the team of SNC Technologies Engineers was designed according to the infra-mesh type wireless configuration and following the “best practice” configuration of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network (UWN). The design provides a centralized wireless network management system utilizing the Cisco Wireless LAN controller and Cisco Prime Infrastructure with a Cisco High Availability (HA) redundancy controller which has been a proven configuration that SNCTechnologies has successfully deployed at a number of other mine sites where SNC MineComms has been installed to support Mining Fleet Management systems.
The successful and on-time SNC MineComms WiFi network deployed by Trakindo successfully achieved the project Go-live milestone last week along with the major project criteria approved including; a 100% WiFi coverage area across all of the BUMA operations areas with a very high signal rate of over 79dBn, high roaming capabilities between access points of less than 5 seconds, a minimum of 5Mbps throughput of the vehicle on-board client radio to the WiFi Access Points, a WiFi Backbone Backhaul of over 390Mbps throughput with a total network average end to end latency of less than 50ms with a total packet loss of less than 1%.
