Dangerous for people and hard to reach for mobile devices, the mining industry also challenges the creators of mission critical communication technologies. 

Becker Mining, from South Africa, came to TASSTA with a request to supply their partner mining companies with the best MCPTT solution. Becker Mining is an expert in its market and provides the leading equipment for electrical automatisation, communication systems, electrical energy distribution and control systems for mining companies round the globe. 

All TASSTA solutions, whether designed for public security or for oil platform operations, carry the same level of high responsibility and commitment from the TASSTA team. It was ultimately important that not only the TASSTA solution worked well in the underground environment but also that the devices were reliable “partners” of each man underground. So were the two models of smartphones iSafe chosen: IS520 and IS320.

The mining company that requested a mission critical push-to-talk solution already had an integrated Becker Wi-Fi system. To find out if TASSTA met all the safety and security requirements, TASSTA team conveyed a thorough and comprehensive analysis and lots of tests. The TASSTA solution proved to work perfectly well for all the personnel of the mine. 

Also, unlike most of our clients Becker Mining preferred to have an on-premise standalone server for each of their customers, which minimized the risks of losing the connection between the miners. Flexibility of this kind is always important for the sake of stable connection and urgent support, apart from the security measures.


Stable operations together with the intuitive and clear interfaces of T.Rodon and T.Commander improved the general performance of the mines in terms of the quality of communication and its convenience for all the participants. The flexibility of TASSTA solutions enables it to easily remove unnecessary features and add new ones. Constant support, developing and following the current trends makes TASSTA one of the most advantageous, compatible and flexible solutions on the market.

Becker Mining say, TASSTA was chosen to be a partner, “For the ease of using the system and the background history.” We are very grateful to them for sharing their story with us.
