Why Vodacom Digital Mine?

By using Vodacom Digital Mine, you will be able to optimise mining processes and enhance workplace health and safety for your workers. Reduce downtime and gain visibility into your mining operations in near real-time, while cutting costs by plugging into your existing infrastructure.

With our range of Digital Mine solutions, you can also include a Mobile Private Network (MPN), and integrated portable, private, and secure network that provides higher speed and strength compared to a regular Wi-Fi connection. MPN will revolutionise the way you do business by bringing the network and the Cloud closer to the devices that need it.

How Mobile Private Networks benefits your mining operations


•       Keep your data safe, since it does not leave your site*

•       Access control: Based on a mobile network, MPN provides all the end-user security of a mobile network

•       Private connectivity: Only your company devices can connect

High Speed, Low Latency

•       Enables low latency/ultra-reliable low latency (URLL) applications

•       Allows URLL Cloud-based applications to be located on customer premises

•       Cloud compute (distributed MEC) enables low latency applications

•       Connecting your Autonomous Guided Vehicles


•       Assured SLAs with guaranteed QoS and high availability delivers the best performance and minimises downtime

•       Greater business responsiveness is possible as your data can be collected, analysed, and then acted upon locally without needing to cross the network with Edge Computing


•       Tailored to your requirements – addressing your specific needs now and in the future

•       Bring compute power closer to application users through Edge Computing, experience the same agility and scalability offered by the public Cloud

More Choice

•       With Edge Computing, you choose where to run your workloads, depending on their specific latency, bandwidth, and data sovereignty requirements

•       Guaranteed capacity that is dedicated and tailored to your needs

Cost Saving Performance

•       With local decision-making happening at the edge, non-time-critical data can be streamed to the Cloud when bandwidth needs are lower, leading to improved performance and cost savings
