netport gigabit

Wireless communication in underground mines

The NetPort Gigabit represents the next frontier in underground coal mining. With 2×2 MU-MIMO underground wireless capability will increase substantially. This new capacity will drive innovation and growth for your business. The possibilities are infinite, but may include IS Cameras, IS Tablets, advanced messaging devices and general data transfers.

The NetPort Gigabit is a dual 802.11b/g/n access point with a built-in 4 port ethernet fibre switch. Backbone connectivity is through four SFP ports enabling a range of network options including 100Mbps backward compatibility, 1Gbps, SM and MM.

Wireless data is transmitted and received via four antenna ports from two separate radios, both operating in the 2.4 GHz band. The four antenna ports are N-type female connectors, to which a variety of antennas can be fitted to suit the most rugged radio environments.
