Reducing CAPEX and OPEX with 4x Increase in Throughput and Coverage Over LTE
Malvern, PA – August 9, 2023: Rajant Corporation, the pioneer of Kinetic Mesh® wireless networks, and STRACONTech, a Kinetic Mesh Partner in Lima, Peru, have increased bandwidth and improved networking coverage at Constancia Mine in Peru with Rajant’s Peregrine LTE BreadCrumb®. The large copper mine in south Peru.
After reviewing options, the mine selected to invest in Rajant’s proven solution for mobility, which allows an almost “plug-and-play” integration with the mine’s existing LTE network. Eduardo Rojas, IT Manager in Hudbay, points out, “Our mining operation needed a better design for its haulage and loading fleet. With the Rajant hybrid solution, we now have a significant increase in bandwidth, which will allow us to be more efficient.”
With the Rajant Peregrine LTE, the mine obtained a 4x performance improvement, going from a limit of 10Mbps with LTE up to 40 Mbps.
The Rajant Peregrine LTE allows connectivity on multiple frequencies simultaneously, including LTE. This improves operations so connectivity is not lost with the mining fleet even when interference exists on the 2.4GHz, 5Ghz, or LTE band.
Rajant Vice President of Sales (Americas/APAC) Sagar Chandra adds, “All mining operations want reliable and scalable connectivity. We successfully improved the performance of the installed LTE network using the Peregrine LTE, which offers the unique benefit of Kinetic Mesh and direct machine-to-machine connectivity.”
Rajant and STRACONTech teams started with a proof of concept, resulting in a larger phased installation, delivering improved performance. STRACONTech’s team explains, “We measured 30-32 Mbps at 1 km while the mine’s LTE had a ceiling of 10 Mbps. We solved the challenge they had. Moreover, the investment in the Peregrine LTE was a one-time cost for the mine without recurring annual software or maintenance costs, saving them long-term.”
