Offshore drilling often takes place in the harshest environments on earth. As the need to discover new resource grows, this trend is set to continue. Yet, the remote site still needs all the communications services expected onshore or at corporate headquarters. As well as providing high performance and available connectivity to operational, business and infotainment systems, the network equipment has to be extremely robust and reliable to deliver continuous operations. Datasat delivers a single mutli-service infrastructure - based on VSAT satellite and intelligent wireless technology - to meet all offshore communications requirements.
