Topic: Communications Technology Solutions & Building the Digital Oilfield: Bandwidth, Traffic & Throughput Optimisation Imperatives - Panel Session 1
Oil and Gas companies rely on dependable, high speed communications to support their mission critical operations, both at sea and on land. In addition, this infrastructure must also support crew welfare, enabling workers to access their preferred Internet services and stay in touch with family and friends.
Satellite plays an important role in these remote environments, both as the primary communications link and as independent back-up for sites which can be served by terrestrial connectivity.
While most IT departments are under pressure to control costs, the demand for bandwidth continues to grow, driven by Internet, voice and HD video for corporate and crew welfare applications. Managing congestion by prioritizing critical traffic, while controlling latency and jitter, is also a challenge. Discover our Application Note Oil & Gas.
