Wireless Technologies in Industrial Markets: An Examination of Mesh Technologies in Mining
Motorola's Wireless Broadband Mesh product portfolio has been designed to offer maximum flexibility, offering both 802.11-based solutions and solutions with Motorola's industrial strength MEA (Mobility Enabled Access) technology for critical applications and harsh environments. When paired with Motorola's advanced MeshConnex routing algorithm, either access technology can provide a robust connectivity solution for a city, an agency or a business. This paper is the first in a series of solutions papers on how 802.11 and MEA technologies can be used in the most demanding RF environments in the world. This paper examines real world applications for mining, and the unique strengths and capabilities of each of the wireless technologies.
