Event description
Join us for IoT at the Edge and 5G: From Edge to Enterprise - The Mining Industry Perspective

About this Event

Traditional process instrumentation and equipment combined with ad-hoc connectivity in mining has constrained both business integration and operational productivity. The evolution and subsequent growth of IoT-enabled devices and equipment is trending to overcome this. The result is unprecedented volumes of data becoming available. And this data is beginning to change the way mining operations can work more optimally; in so much transforming many processes from an experiential or engineering design basis, to being ‘data-driven’.

Add to this the expected increase of 5G networks. When combined with the advance in connected devices and equipment, results in massive amounts of device-generated data to traditional centralised data centres, or direct to the cloud. This poses real challenges to the capacity of existing communications infrastructure.

Additionally, as a corollary, the mining industry must now prioritise Operational Technology (OT) data security as IT systems converge with OT systems, with the advent of Industry 4.0 and new ways of working.

We now classify this technology capability as the Edge; a category of sensors, devices and systems integrating to physical processes and equipment which importantly stage acquisition, storage and analytics.

Join us for this important conversation and hear from expert speakers.
