The Redline network delivers enough capacity to carry all of this operator’s voice, data and video traffic on a single backbone, giving employees and contractors access to corporate systems from anywhere, delivering real-time drilling applications, and providing M2M connectivity for remote monitoring and management of assets

Once fully deployed, this new network will bring a ubiquitous umbrella of connectivity, converting the customer’s field operation into a truly digital oilfield.

Redline’s wide-area wireless Virtual Fiber solution will be the backbone that connects hundreds of multipurpose Wi-Fi hotspots distributed across a large geographic area as well as providing connectivity for remote monitoring of well heads and collection and separation facilities.

“Delivering a multi-purpose wireless network across a wide area in rugged terrain is not an easy task,” said Louis Lambert, vice president of oil and gas sales for Redline. “Redline couples powerful network solutions that were designed specifically for oil and gas with deep industry knowledge and superb technical expertise to satisfy the most demanding customers.”

Redline will be partnering with a local telecom service provider who owns some of the licensed spectrum to be used in the network. In addition to network products, Redline will be providing a range of technical services including RF planning, network architecture development, network design and engineering.

This first phase is expected to be fully operational in early 2015.

Redline’s Virtual Fiber wide-area wireless network solutions are designed for the most challenging locations and mission-critical applications. Redline couples powerful and reliable wireless technology with a deep knowledge of oil and gas to deliver a single secure and reliable network infrastructure that is powerful enough to simultaneously accommodate the distances, capacity and the many application types required for the digital oilfield - including voice, video, SCADA, M2M, Wi-Fi or other data.
