Over 3 900 mining specialists are expected to visit the exhibition over 3 days, to discover the latest equipment, projects and communication technologies.

The Norphonic Heavy Duty VoIP Telephone is a telephone tailored to underground mining areas, being both water and dust resistant with a performance rating of IP65. It is otherwise bulit to withstand extreme temperatures, humid and dirty environments. The external hookswich has no moving parts, further making the telephone ideal for use in mining environments where high levels of dust, water and grime are prevalent.

Health and Safety will be under the spotlight at this exhibition, particularly with the recent accident in China fresh in the memory, where a flood caused 153 miners to be trapped in the newly constructed Wangjialing mine. Many organisations are now campaigning for improved health and safety standards to protect exposed mining workers.

Robust VoIP telephone technology that can drastically help to improve communication and safety, as Helge Rognstad, Sales and Marketing Director with Norphonic explains: " While mining today is substantially safer than it was in the previous decades, we still find that many mining companies are struggling with cumbersome and costly analogue telephone technology. Our presence at Mining World presents us with the opportunity to demonstrate how the latest cost effective SIP-based VoIP telephone technology can add significant value, both in terms of improved communications and safety"
