Boliden taps Radtonics for private 5G network

Boliden has entered into an agreement with Radtonics, regarding the creation of a private industrial 5G network for its Garpenberg underground zinc mine in Sweden.

Among other things, the network will play an important role as a communication channel in a project for autonomous transport initiated at the mine. Boliden is working strategically to use modern technology that automates processes, increases operational reliability and lays the foundation for long-term sustainable mining operations. 

“Boliden chose Radtonics after a procurement process where several 4G and 5G options were evaluated. In the end, it was Radtonics’ solution for private industrial 5G networks that best met Boliden’s stringent requirements,” said Patric Lind, CEO and co-founder of Radtonics.

With Radtonics’ solution, Boliden Garpenberg gets its own private network that is both easy and flexible to implement. A private 5G network provides better transparency in the network and facilitates monitoring and data utilisation.
