IEC Telecom drives digital transformation with comms solutions at ADIPEC 2019

ADIPEC, which will run from November 11-14 in Abu Dhabi, brings together a number of satellite solutions providers along with companies in other sectors, who service the oil & gas industry.

Managed network communication solutions provider IEC Telecom Group will showcase its latest connectivity solutions at this year’s Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC, 11-14 November 2019) to meet the needs of the oil and gas industry.

IEC Telecom Group plans to display its latest solution OneGate Energy to meet the requirements of remote units. OneGate provides access to a virtual platform that stores critical applications. This enables the technical team to maintain, update, and upgrade onsite infrastructure remotely, saving time and money on logistics. The actual terminal is a single and compact server rack that is easy to transport in case the exploration team needs to shift from one site to another. OneGate also separates corporate environment from staff network. This segregation ensures that e-operations and classified data remain safe eliminating cyber threats.

OneGate is equipped with functionality that allows to optimise traffic providing better user experience for employees. It also offers individual vouchers for high-quality on-demand data access. Key features include, local dashboard, crew management, local FTP server, integrated Wi-Fi manager, QoS and WAN Optimisation and filtration and usage control, etc.

The global energy companies are rapidly adopting digitalisation to stay sustainable and competitive by reducing their production and exploration costs. The industry can save up to $73 billion within 5 years in exploration and production by adopting latest technologies, according to Wood Mackenzie.

Oil and gas firms in the Middle East are also increasing their investments on digital transformation to scale up their output. According to a BP Energy Outlook 2019, the Middle East remains the largest oil producing region and the second largest gas producer, with 36% of global oil and 20% of gas output.

Digital transformation in the oil and gas industry has spurred demand for reliable, secure and high-performance connectivity.

Satcom solutions are playing a significant role in the energy industry, improving efficiency by automating key manual processes and ensuring vastly improved data visibility over critical assets.

These solutions also help in supervision of machinery through remote monitoring/maintenance.
