Global Mining Standards & Guidelines Group (GMSG) is heading to CORE to host a three-part series of workshops. Underground Communications Infrastructure Workshop is the third workshop of this series.
The workshop objective is to define areas and content to be included in the Section 3 document - General Guidelines. This section focuses on best practices, recommendations, guidelines and other considerations.
Section 3 of the Communications Infrastructure Guideline is part of a suite of documents as a collective guideline, with Section 1 (Positioning & Needs Analysis) currently out to the Underground Working Group for voting to publish and Section 2 (Solutions & Architectures) being put to the Working Group for a final review before going to vote later this month and Sections 4 (Business Development) and 5 (Planning, Deploying & Support Considerations) to follow.
This suite of guidelines will be used by the mining industry as a reference for the frameworks, standards, processes and procedures supporting digital communications in an underground mine environment.
