iPMine-ZAPs (Zone Access Points) are IEEE 802.11 wireless/wire-line access points, based on true wireless mesh network technologies. Placed in and around a mine, the iPMine ZAPs collectively define a resilient, highly reliable and available wireless in-mine voice and data communication backbone with redundant multi-paths and multi-hops. If a path stops working due to hardware failure or interference, mesh network automatically re-routes messages through an alternative path. Redundant data paths not only improve reliability, but also provide higher data rates than ingle-hop networks. iPMine-ZAP mesh networks are self-configurable, self-healing, and do not require a central server, and are expandable with minimal degradation in signal.
