Improving through Experience
Minelert installed and commissioned its first underground VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi) solution in 2008. To date, we have successfully commissioned more than 250 handsets in various underground operations in South Africa. The handset of choice is Ascom’s i75 and i62.
Minelert Communicator module offered many features such as:
- SIP-Based Functionality
- Normal dial tone functionality
- Push to Talk
- Man Down Alarming
