Case Study: Using Strike Alpha Cradles in a Mining Fleet to Boost Wi-Fi Signal in Vehicles


In today's world, reliable internet connectivity is essential for businesses operating in remote areas. This is especially true for large mining fleets that cover vast distances on mine sites. However, in these areas, internet signal strength can often be weak, causing significant communication issues. One solution to this problem is to use Strike Alpha Cradles, a device designed to enhance Wi-Fi signals in vehicles. In this case study, we explore how a mining company used Strike Alpha Cradles to improve their employees' communication and productivity while on the mine site.

Mining Fleet Signal and Mounting Solution


The mining company in question had a large fleet of vehicles that operated on a large mine site, covering a vast area. The company relied on their drivers to communicate with each other and the headquarters regularly, providing updates on their location and the status of their work. However, the drivers often experienced connectivity issues when working in remote areas, resulting in missed or delayed updates.


To address this problem, the mining company decided to install Strike Alpha Cradles in their fleet of vehicles. The Strike Alpha Cradle is a device that securely holds a mobile phone or tablet and enhances the device's Wi-Fi signal through an external antenna. By boosting the Wi-Fi signal, the cradles allow for better internet connectivity, especially in remote areas.


The mining company purchased and installed Strike Alpha Cradles in each of their vehicles. The cradles were connected to the vehicle's power supply, ensuring that the devices were always charged and ready for use. The cradles were also equipped with external antennas, which were mounted on the roof of each vehicle to ensure maximum signal strength.


After installing the Strike Alpha Cradles, the mining company saw a significant improvement in their employees' communication and productivity. The drivers and other employees were able to send updates and receive messages in real-time, without experiencing any connectivity issues, even in remote areas of the mine site. This resulted in better tracking of work progress, reduced delays, and improved safety for workers. Additionally, the employees were also able to access necessary information, such as work orders and safety procedures, more easily, leading to a more efficient work process.


The mining company's decision to use Strike Alpha Cradles in their fleet of vehicles was a wise investment. By enhancing their employees' connectivity and productivity, they were able to improve their overall efficiency and safety, even in remote areas of the mine site. The Strike Alpha Cradle is an affordable and easy-to-install solution for any company operating in remote areas and looking to improve their communication and productivity while on the job.
