Keeping Mining Communities Connected

Keeping mining communities connected

Though our channel partners, OSA has provided Calix equipment to the majority of mining camps in WA, QLD and the NT.

In fact, the largest iron ore mining companies in the world exclusively utilise Calix equipment at their Australian sites.

In communities across the globe, the reliance on technology continues to increase the need for faster and more reliable networks. Remote mining communities are no different and working so far away from home can be an isolating experience.

Through GPON deployments, miners are able to experience best in class connectivity.

This enables them to maintain on-demand contact with their loved ones back home as well as not missing out on all a connected society has to offer.
