The future of mining is dependent on leading-edge communications technology. Cisco is a world leader in developing new and reliable systems that are ensuring mines are more efficient, productive, and safer as exploration continues to go further underground.

At NORCAT’s Underground Centre, Cisco’s installation of its proprietary ruggedized WiFi infrastructure is helping to enable consistent transfer of data and analytics throughout underground mining operations. Large-scale underground WiFi communications are an integral part of the future of mining and demonstrating the technology at NORCAT – in the heart of the world’s leading mining technology cluster – enables global mining companies to come look and assess opportunities for their mining operations.

“The Internet of Things and digitization are rapidly transforming industries across Canada. Mining is no exception, and we are excited to work with NORCAT to drive innovation and leadership in this space for years to come.”
