Original Press Release:

SIAMnet System Provides Cost Effective Alternative for Underground Voice and Data Communications.

The SIAMnet Communication System by Cattron Group International offers an extremely cost effective alternative to Fiber Optic and "Leaky Feeder" technologies for voice and data communications in underground mines. Using Cable Modem technology and coaxial cable, the SIAMnet system is more versatile and provides as much band width as Fiber Optic networks at a fraction of the cost.

One SIAMnet coaxial cable can support up to 32 simultaneous voice transmissions, three 1.5 Mbps Mobile Data sub-networks, each supporting up to 64 vehicles, and twelve DOCSIS 1.1 Cable Modem channels for a total of 360 Mbps downstream and 120Mbps upstream. DOCSIS 2.0 and EURODOCSIS 2.0 are also supported when more bandwidth is required.

SIAMnet cable modems are installed anywhere a connection to the network is required. The modem, as well as the 802.11 Access Point, draws power through the coaxial cable. There is no need to install additional power for each modem, repairs to the cable can be made quickly and easily, and the system can be expanded and maintained with minimal technical expertise. The cable modems in a SIAMnet system can also provide IP camera and VOIP transmission.

The SIAMnet system is modular and scalable, one system for both voice and data, which can be expanded as needed. For example, users can start with Voice communication only and add Data capability later without the need to change the cable infrastructure or interrupt the voice capability. The SIAMnet Voice and Data Communications system makes Fiber Optic and Leaky Feeders obsolete.
