Extracting more from your communications
Based in some of the world’s most inhospitable and remote areas, mine sites often struggle to establish and maintain consistent communications not only with the outside world but internally too. Whether for the exploration team or during full production, Onlime can provide reliable satellite and terrestrial communications 24 hours a day.
We understand your critical need for reliable connectivity. We monitor, control and support 24 hours a day.
Onlime offers a comprehensive and fully flexible range of enterprise quality communications services for the mining sector.
Invariably mine sites are in areas of low population and as a result often lack national communications infrastructure, particularly in the early days of set up and production and VSAT therefore becomes the only practical option. Onlime can provide solutions for all phases of the mine site development, whether it is iDirect® based mobile antennas or small fixed systems for the exploration and survey teams, which can be rapidly deployed and easily relocated or larger SCPC installations required for the construction and production phases.
The VSAT will connect back to our teleport in Germany and then over the Internet to your corporate network or if required over dedicated circuits to your corporate network out of the Teleport or one of our other European POPs. We can provide in-country satellite mesh networks linking several sites for voice and data, or a star configuration linking sites from our Teleport. Onlime delivers MPLS end-to-end over the satellite links, whether iDirect or SCPC, to ensure high quality of service.
Satellite bandwidth is a scare commodity and both TCP Acceleration and Caching of regularly used content are an excellent way to save resources.
At Onlime our solutions feature the latest modem technology. We provide an end-to-end fully Managed Service, which includes 24/7 monitoring, monthly reporting and Service Level Agreements guaranteeing the highest level of availability.

Onlime White Paper
Communications: Foundation of Mine Site Integration
Increasing technology employment in mining projects today, alongside the typically remote operating locales has increased dependency on the ability to communicate. The local- and wide-area networks and Internet access have become more than crucial to the mining operations, they are automatically expected to be present, providing reliable and quality service. In spite of this being true, mining operations often undervalue and underutilise the communications infrastructure that forms the foundation of their business functionality and that holds massive potential to provide incredibly rich information to operational and executive management, on-the-fly, in a real-time dashboard.
