Glencore Kidd Operations Extends Network to 40 Underground Locations with N-Connex
About Glencore Kid Operations
Company: Glencore Kidd Operations
Mineral: Zinc & Copper
Mine Depth: 2.9km
Scope: 11 km coverage, 28 networked levels
Application: Low-cost extension of existing industrial network.
Glencore Kidd Operations sought out a low cost and easy to install solution to extend their existing third-party network to many new underground locations. The scope and size of the mine made third-party products cost prohibitive, so Glencore Kidd Operations worked with NLT to create an N-Connex based extension solution that allowed them to remain with their incumbent provider, but increase network access to the mine.
