Secure access to public wireless networks offered oil, gas firms

MDS Orbit MCR-4G industrial routers are announced "to help owners of private communication networks such as oil and gas companies...leverage public cellular networks to securely communicate with field crews and industrial equipment and reduce the cost and time associated with maintaining their infrastructure."

For industrial infrastructure companies that rely on private mission-critical communication networks, the router can help take advantage of public cellular infrastructure to bring valuable asset and operational information from the field to operations centers. This includes well production data or equipment pressures and temperatures.

MDS Orbit MCR-4G also allows field crews to access data on their corporate network - traditionally available only in the office. For oil and gas customers, this can mean well servicers can use a well's WiFi hotspot to access the corporate network, get their next work order, move to the next job - and not return to the office.

The routers likewise address the need for highly secure, industrial-grade wireless communication at oil/gas production sites, substations, pad device monitoring, or video surveillance. Further MDS Orbit data are free.
