Among the many challenges presented by the oil and gas sector are the logistical difficulties of working in remote locations. A prime example is the lack of permanent infrastructure, such as telecommunications towers for mobile phone and data networks.
These types of remote locations, whether an offshore oil rig or a far-flung gas field, rely on quality coax cables to connect portable satellite dishes or cellular microwave radios for reliable wireless communications signals.
In addition to the need for emergency communications, such as ship to shore radios, many oil and gas sites today are equipped with field measurement instruments that require uninterrupted connections to transmit critical data. Loss of connection to these remote locations can not only endanger safety, but it can also result in significant production losses.
Rugged coax cables from ABR provide the level of dependability needed to help maintain seamless operations for safety and profitability, even in the kind of hostile environments typical of oil and gas operations. On the rig or in a downtown office, workers expect the communications experience to be the same, particularly with regard to mission critical communications.Social Share
