Flexible voice and data communications infrastructure that is robust and easy to deploy during the harsh construction stage

PBE offers various communications solutions and data infrastructure to enable reliable voice and data to be transported to the surface. These systems are deployed as a combination of different technologies to meet the needs of all the applications and services required. These components include:

PBE FLEETPBE FLEET, our industry leading Fleet Management System (FMS) extracts, records and presents crucial operational data for the monitoring and management of a mining fleet. This enables all levels of the mining operation to have the knowledge to support quick and effective decisions.

Leaky Feeder– Leaky Feeder systems offer clear two-way radio communication and high-speed data transfer capabilities throughout your underground complex.

PBE’s Leaky Feeder System can be tailored to specific site requirements to provide the best radio coverage and data communications.


Fibre Networks PBE Group is a fibre network provider that delivers a vast array of integrated tunnelling and mining projects globally and offers custom fiber-based solutions that are reliable, robust and easy to use.

Rebroadcasting systems (LTE, FM, TETRA, P25, etc), video monitoring and real time machine control systems can demand high bandwidth and low latency for operation.


SCADA and Telemetry – Customer telemetry needs are diverse and dynamic. PBE offers a wide spectrum of systems that provide reliable, scalable and inherently flexible solutions to meet these increasingly complex mandates. The modular SCADA based hardware can interface with Ethernet and RF networks ensuring seamless connectivity to existing infrastructure.


LTE NetworksPBE offers secure and reliable wireless solutions for critical mining and tunnel construction operations. Complete end-to-end private LTE networks provide unified infrastructure for underground applications with different QoS, bandwidth and latency requirements.


Fixed Telephone – PBE provides Fixed Phone Voice Communication for safe, efficient and reliable underground operation.

Two-way voice communication underground is a necessity to provide a safe and productive work environment. PBE offers a number of fixed phone solutions that can be deployed to provide secure voice communications. Solutions can be analogue or digital and be either stand-alone or integrated into PBX and mobile infrastructure.

These communications solutions can be deployed to provide redundancy where communications is critical. This network infrastructure can be used by PBE’s extensive suite of safety and productivity solutions as well as 3rd party applications and devices.
