Goldcorp is committed to responsible mining practices and maintaining maximum safety for its workers. At the same time, the firm is constantly exploring ways to improve the efficiency of its operations, extend the life of its assets, and control costs. Goldcorp needed technology that can maximize production efficiency by tracking all mining operations, keep employees safe with remote operations and monitoring of hazardous work areas and control production costs through better asset and site management.
To increase insight and control across the mine, Goldcorp deployed a Cisco Connected Mining solution. Goldcorp can manage its communications and mining operations on one multi-service, secure IP network. Built to withstand harsh conditions, the solution delivers unified, secure access from any device and any location. The Connected Mining solution provides near real-time visibility, monitoring, and ventilation control. Meanwhile, Partner utilization of AeroScout's RFID solution enables live tracking of people and assets in the mine.
