82 | ASIA Miner | September/October 2014 Supplier News CRITICAL communications company Tait Communications has launched EnableFleet, an innovative solution that it says will revolu- tionize feet management for mining, and oil and gas organizations across the world. EnableFleet gives communication managers the power to confgure and manage their radio feets from a central point of control across DMR and P25 networks. Tait product manager Dan Manton says advances in software have changed the way we live our lives - from how we communicate, to how we manage money, to how we view pictures. In the same way, EnableFleet will change the way mission-critical businesses manage their radio feets. "In the past, radio managers kept track of their terminal feet using spreadsheets and other manual systems that were diffcult to maintain, lacked data integrity and were labour intensive," says Dan Manton. "EnableFleet offers a single, secure location for storing information about your radio feet, which can be accessed anytime, from anywhere with guaranteed up-to-date and accurate information in real time. In addition to these great benefts, EnableFleet automatically detects and applies updates to your radio feet. "In fact, anyone with the right Tait EnableProtect Advanced System Key can update their radio feet, ensuring no unauthorized users can tamper with your network. EnableFleet also makes it remarkably simple to create and export insightful reports." EnableFleet is part of the Tait Enable suite of products that Tait has developed to help organizations manage and monitor their networks and feet more effciently. Dan Manton adds: "Every once in a while you get to be part of some- thing truly innovative. We're excited to launch EnableFleet and we're convinced it will make radio networks stronger, smarter and simpler." Tait Communications' clients protect communities, power cities, move citizens, harness resources and save lives all over the world. Tait works with them to create and support the critical communication solutions they depend on to do their jobs. Digital wireless communication forms the central nervous sys- tem of everything Tait does. It says, "Around this resilient, robust core we design, develop, manufacture, test, deploy, support and manage innovative communication environments for organiza- tions that have to put their total trust in the systems and people they work with. "We've worked hard to develop genuine insight into our clients' worlds, and have pursued engineering, operational and services ex- cellence for more than 40 years. This understanding, and our belief in championing open-standards technology, means we can give our clients the best possible choice and value to achieve the human out- comes they're driven by." IMMERSIVE Technologies' simulation based training is a common sight in the Pilbara region of Western Australia and their footprint will con- tinue to grow when the newest mine site, Roy Hill, opens in 2015. The project is expected to annually produce 55 million tonnes making it Australia's fourth biggest iron ore producer. Roy Hill is an attractive option for employ- ment with more than 5000 expressions of in- terest or direct applications reported since the start of 2014. "Roy Hill is a landmark mining project with a clear strategy to use technology to drive a competitive advantage. They have committed to ensure their employ- ees will have the opportunity to devel- op and enhance their skills and we're pleased our simulation based training solutions will be a part of this effort," says Immersive Technologies' executive vice president Sales and Support David Anderson. Immersive Technologies' simulation based training solutions are in place at more than 250 mine sites around the world, including 12 of the top 15 iron ore producing countries. Immersive Technologies is the world's largest, proven and tested supplier of sur- face and underground Advanced Equipment Simulators to the global mining industry. The company says it has achieved this position by focusing on its mission to make every mining and earthmoving equipment operator in the world safer and their employer more proftable through its simulation technologies. Immersive's Advanced Equipment Simula- tors are helping hundreds of mining compa- nies around the world to increase their equip- ment operators' safety and site proftability through effective simulation training. The company provides its customers with the most effective Advanced Equipment Simulators available, made possible through the formal exclusive licensing and technical information alliances it has established with the leading original equipment manufacturers (OEM), including Caterpillar, Hitachi, Komatsu and Liebherr.
