17th April 2014: Sabine Mine has selected partners to install a high bandwidth kinetic mesh network technology to improve operational logistics and enhance safety at its North America surface operation. Spread out over a large area, the Sabine Mine has two active pits with four drag lines, multiple vehicles, equipment and personnel dispersed over rugged terrain. It needed a flexible, self-configuring network that could establish and maintain a secure connection across multiple moving assets with no down time. In response, it chose Rajant Corporation, the pioneer of kinetic mesh networks, and Becker Wholesale Mine Supply, the leading supplier of mining electrical products and services in the Western Hemisphere and a subsidiary of Becker Mining America, to help solve its mining broadband communication network challenges. Since this first successful installation, the company has expanded the network solution by adding 10 more nodes across the second pit.
