Orange Business Services shared how its digital mine technology is helping Zapadnaya Gold Mining to transform its operations in remote locations.
Orange’s integrated network allows the Russian gold mining company to enjoy unified communications and video conferencing services between its headquarters and hard-to-reach mining sites in Siberia and the Far East of Russia.
This includes six sites that Orange engineers connected entirely via satellite because of their remote location.
With the Orange network solution, Zapadnaya improved collaboration and increased employee productivity over its eight locations.
The company uses the video conferencing and unified communications solution for corporate training, business meetings and remote resolution of business and technical issues. This has helped Zapadnaya reduce costs while improving safety and productivity in its gold mines.
Digital mine integrates network technology with smart, connected devices to provide real-time collaboration. It includes video surveillance, IP sensors, Wi-Fi connectivity and unified communications.
“Demand is growing not only in Russia, but worldwide, and we have the expertise to help empower companies with borderless collaboration solutions around the world,” says Anne-Sophie Lotgering, senior vice president, Europe, Russia and CIS, Orange Business Services.
IT manager at Zapadnaya IT Manager Yuri Shabanov said video conferencing via satellite communication helps them to control costs and improve safety across the organization.
