For each leading mining company, success and sales growth came with an efficient radio solution for voice dispatch between all critical assets in a mine.

Modern communication solution significantly contributes in the planning and execution for a mine operator. TETRA based radio system compliments their mine management systems that helps ensures safety, efficiency and increase production for mining operations.


Mining operations require reliable digital voice and data communication solutions.  There are multiple stakeholders and external contractors working at a mine and therefore it is critical to provide a communication system which can provide unified communication for all in case of emergency, while allowing them confidentiality for their normal communication. Some of the key requirements are :

  • Good voice quality in noisy environments

Mining operations have high ambient noise and therefore desired communication solution must be able to filter out maximum background noise during transmission.

  • Ensure reliable and safe operation

Today’s mine operators need fail-safe connectivity to operate safely and efficiently in an increasingly demanding and regulated environment.

  • Enhance operational flexibility and efficiency

By ensuring instantaneous communication from users in different departments and processes at various locations across the mining facilities. Seamless communication within and across departments ensures maximum efficiency of operations.

  • Next gen applications for mine management

Modern communication systems must support the need for next generation applications for mine management.

  • Interoperable and multi-vendor support

The proposed solution must be fully interoperable and be standardized for a multi-vendor environment.

  • Suitable dust-proof devices for mining environment

Suitable devices are required for extremely harsh environments in mining areas.

  • Upgrade by interconnection to broadband

The proposed solution integrates with modern broadband communication networks such as WIFI and LTE for supporting data applications.


CONSORT TETRA Solution is based on DAMM TetraFlex which is a modern, reliable and cost-effective communication platform designed to meet diverse yet specific requirements of plant communication.

The TETRA solution for OITDS provides the following salient features:

  • Provide reliable, seamless voice and data communication services between mobile assets [rovers, dumpers, shovel, excavators etc.], personnel and control room.
  • Provide user friendly control room dispatch applications.
  • Intuitive fault management system.
  • Flexibility in installation in different areas and zones of the plant.
  • Communication with other GPS based OITDS terminals on direct dialing.
  • The system must be scalable to cater for extension of range as well as increase in subscribers
  • Suitable dust-proof  devices for mining environment
  • Integration ready with other existing radio technologies, future WIFI or LTE networks.


The mining operations are getting more automated and modernized. There is a key focus on efficiency and safety during production. Consort Digital solutions provide significant benefits for mining operations. These solutions ensure vastly improved operational efficiency and security of the users.

Key benefits of our communication solution include –

  • Plug and play design – easy deployment and scaling up of mission-critical solution. System administrators can integrate all network components, including base stations, dispatchers, network management facilities and external gateways at any time, even while the system is in operation.
  • Lower operating costs – The solutions are based on DAMM TetraFlex that offers plug-and-play simplicity for easy setup and fast deployment. The compact design of the DAMM outdoor base station enables direct mounting on antenna masts, buildings and towers, reducing feeder loss and installation costs considerably. Both the indoor and outdoor base stations offer extremely low power consumption, and thanks to the IP65 encapsulation, the outdoor base station doesn’t need any external air-conditioned housing. DAMM TetraFlex is developed with flexibility and user-friendliness at the core, saving substantially on training and project costs.
  • Low maintenance – extremely high reliability ensures low maintenance costs thereby reducing total cost of ownership.
  • Integration to other plant communication systems – The solution integrates through standard interfaces such as SIP to other plant communication systems.
  • Integration to legacy systems – Allows for simple integration to legacy wireless and wire line communication systems.
