Resumé

The mining industry is on a transition towards
unmanned operations. This implies a step change in wireless
infrastructure expansion to support autonomous and teleoperated
machinery. This paper investigates how the topographic changes
over the course of 10 years of continuous mining affect the
propagation conditions, and impacts the performance associated
with different deployment strategies for wireless networks in
a large open-pit mining complex in Brazil. Through a series
of system-level simulations, using detailed terrain models, realistic
traffic volumes and a dedicated propagation model, we
compare the ability of different deployment strategies, and
network features, to meet given performance targets with existing
technology. The results show that heterogeneous deployments can
be exploited to continuously guarantee coverage in this everchanging
topography, while interference mitigation techniques,
such as enhanced inter-cell interference coordination (eICIC) and
beamforming, can be used to reduce the system outage without
need to increase the spectrum.
