Greater Productivity and Interaction

Whether it’s remote land-based drilling operations or offshore drilling platforms, the appetite for satellite broadband is rapidly growing. Communications links that may have sufficed in the past for basic connectivity can’t handle the bandwidth-hungry needs of today’s applications for commercial monitoring, control functions, safety management and crew welfare within the Oil and Gas sector.

As bandwidth demand increases, it’s more critical to operations that the network doesn’t fail in any scenario. With daily rates in the range of hundreds of thousands of dollars, any minute lost in communications is a loss in profits.

Oil and Gas global service providers are facing pressure from their customers to deliver unified next-generation capabilities that provide higher availability, better bandwidth utilization and seamless global coverage - even in the most remote locations.
