MINING & OIL/GAS EXPLORATION

MINING & OIL/GAS EXPLORATION


Harsh environments and tremendous liability requires tremendous reliability

Because of the tremendous liability involved, mining and oil/gas exploration facilities require a reliable wireless network. Summit wireless network products from Mountain Secure Systems (MSS) offer the perfect combination of performance and ruggedness needed to support today's high bandwidth applications.

We have a customer that uses our wireless technology to connect a network of ships in the Persian Gulf that conduct oil exploration, while another uses our wireless networks to transmit video and data at a massive open pit mine in Australia. Both are examples of harsh environments where data and video connectivity are critical.

Mining and oil/gas facilities commonly use our wireless networks for:

  • Video surveillance (for theft deterrence and insurance liability)
  • Data and voice communications (temporary and permanent)
  • RFID connectivity
  • Access control

Summit wireless network products from MSS are:


  • A track record of proven performance in harsh environments
  • Built in a world-class manufacturing facility here in the USA that meets stringent quality management requirements for military and aerospace applications
  • Industry-leading 2-Year Standard Warranty

  • Summit wireless network products offer the highest usable bandwidth in the industry at 40 Mbps of real throughput in a 20 MHz channel, without the use of 802.11n technology. For the highest possible performance, our 802.11n MIMO version offers speeds up to 150 Mbps at costs unimaginable in the past.

  • Every Summit product can be configured as any of the following:
  • Bridge
  • Router
  • Access Point (AP)
  • Client
  • Point-to-point
  • Point-to-multipoint
  • Wireless Mesh

  • Summit products offer security features, such as:
  • AES Wireless Encryption (WPA2) 64/128/152 Bit
  • Built-in Firewall
  • FIPS 140-2 validation is available

  • Mountain Secure Systems has a long history of providing rugged products to the military that perform flawlessly under harsh conditions. MSS leverages this rugged expertise in the design and construction of its wireless network products, which meet the criteria below:
  • Successful military deployments
  • Operating Temperature: -40 to 175F (-40 to 80C)
  • IP67-rated enclosure meets MIL-STD-810F standards for mechanical shock, humidity, salt fog and solar radiation
  • EN 300-019-2-4 Class T4.1E and Class 4M3 (humidity, shock and vibration)

  • It's quick and easy to install, configure, monitor and manage Summit wireless network products
  • Standard connectors for both antennas and power
  • PoE (Power over Ethernet) input is cheaper, faster and safer than traditional power options
