The mining industry today revolve around acquisitions and mergers. All successful mining companies come to a point where they have to make very hard decisions on IT infrastructure. With the high level of security required in data that flows within these industries, reliance on Small Business based IT models no longer apply.
Protocol IT is an established IT Service Provider who have worked with projects that involve transitioning business servicing the Mining Industry from a Small IT Business model to a Medium and or Large IT Business.
One of our projects include support and services our client who was awarded a small chunk of the much sorted after $10.5 billion Roy Hill Mining Project. With our partners we have put in place a sturdy IT Infrastructure model that allows secure data to flow in real time between site and Head office.
One of the most challenging parts of the project was to provide a stable, secure and reliable high speed connection back to head office. We established a solid wireless link with the help of our channel partners.
The initial project was completed within 4 months. The next phase of the project involves the use of mobile devices such as iPads to send out timesheets and work orders.
