PowerTrunk has provided software upgrades to the TETRA networks for the Meliadine and Meadowbank gold mines operated by Agnico Eagle Mining Ltd. The TETRA networks are located in the Canadian Arctic region, in the province of Nunavut, and have been in operation there since 2015-2016.
The upgrades were performed by means of remote connection with the Agnico Eagle TETRA radio sites by PowerTrunk technicians and consisted of complete updates of all major software of the PowerTrunk-T TETRA systems, including for the main and redundant central control nodes, network management servers, and other network elements. As a result, the Agnico Eagle TETRA networks received the latest software versions, device drivers, and features for all elements making up the PowerTrunk-T system, thereby providing additional functionality and assuring improved operations of the networks for years to come.
The Meliadine and Meadowbank TETRA networks are essential to efficient operation of the mines and also for worker safety. The systems and user radios are required to continuously operate in extreme arctic conditions, which can easily drop to -40ºC (-40ºF) in winter.
Javier Murad, PowerTrunk Customer Support Manager, stated, “We appreciate the confidence Agnico Eagle has in our company to continue providing mission critical solutions and service for their operations.”
