Industrial connectivity and KVM control room solutions for upstream, midstream, and downstream environments.
As the oil and gas industry continues to grow, more and more well sites, pumping stations, pipelines, processing plants, and refineries are being built. Along the entire route, safe, reliable networking and industrial automation are critical to smooth operations, efficiency, and productivity.
Safety, security, network redundancy, and monitoring are at the forefront when considering communications at downstream refineries and production plants. Communications components can involve Ethernet networks, control room integration, PoE surveillance solutions, and wireless networking.
Communications in this phase of oil and gas production involves monitoring systems, Ethernet networks, wireless and PoE networking for security and surveillance, and integration of new technologies with existing SCADA systems. Communications need to be highly reliable and redundant as security and safety are of utmost importance.
Upstream communications can include aggregation of controllers and sensors, remote monitoring over IP, integration of new technologies with existing equipment, and temporary-site solutions. Solutions include Ethernet networks with instantaneous failovers, wireless networks, network integration with SCADA control rooms and monitoring systems, as well as PoE and wireless networking for communications and security and surveillance.
