Smart Mining Program
Validate Your Smart Mining Technology Solution in a Commercial Grade Infrastructure
Under Ontario’s Next Generation Network Program (NGNP), the CENGN Smart Mining Program allows companies to test their new and innovative IoT-based smart mining product solutions that work to make Ontario mines safer and more efficient. The program provides access to our Next Generation Network wireless infrastructure, as well as the CENGN Smart Mining Living Lab, a real smart mining testbed located at the NORCAT Underground Centre, located near Sudbury, ON.
Nokia and Northern Light Technologies provide private cellular LTE and WiFi capabilities for communication and data collection throughout the Smart Mining Living Lab. The mine is accessible to approved CENGN project applicants to physically install and test their product in a real mine environment, so they can deploy, test and accelerate commercialization of their smart mining solutions.
Solutions leveraging technologies like Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence are the key to revolutionizing the mining industry, which will lead to stimulating job and economic growth, as well as solidifying Ontario’s leadership in Smart Mining.
