Offshore staff

GALVESTON, Texas – Redline Communications is showcasing its Redline Virtual Fiber on the exhibition floor of the Deepwater Operations Conference & Exhibition being held at the Moody Gardens Convention Center in Galveston, Texas, from Nov. 4-6.

The company says that virtual fiber is a powerful private wireless network that brings always-on, high-speed, high-capacity IP connectivity to an operator’s entire oil field operation.

Redline officials say that in offshore operations, the digital oil field depends on always-on connectivity between all devices and people across the oil field; and to that end, the virtual fiber network offers:

  • Capacity to move even the biggest “big data”
  • Security needed for real-time SCADA and other automation systems
  • Portability desired by mobile workforces and drilling operations
  • Power to cover hundreds of miles with a single network 
  • Reliability to keep working regardless of conditions.

Applications for offshore operations include:

  • Auto-acquire for vessels and floating platforms 
  • High-speed access to core network  
  • Simultaneous data, voice and video 
  • High-performance real-time data.
