Redline Communications Group Inc. (“Redline Communications”) (TSX:RDL), a leading provider of mission-critical data infrastructure for remote and harsh environments, announced today that a large petroleum exploration and production company operating in the Gulf of Thailand has selected Redline’s award-winning Virtual Fiber® RDL-3000 solution to provide advanced connectivity solutions for its offshore drilling sites.
Redline’s RDL-3000 will be deployed to deliver high-capacity, high-speed, long-range wireless connectivity for 27 offshore wellheads in the Gulf of Thailand and other offshore locations in the region. The Virtual Fiber RDL-3000 was chosen specifically for this project because it provides secure and reliable high-speed connectivity in these distant, isolated locations and can be used in the toughest environmental conditions, rated to operate between -40° to +75°C for fixed point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communications and nomadic applications.
Included in the Redline solution are features and services such as wireless IP traffic scheduling, QoS and 2.3 GHz fixed connectivity to the wellhead jackets and unmanned platforms. Redline’s comprehensive solutions provide office domain extension, CCTV, VoIP, as well as connectivity to the oil and gas company’s own server directly.
“Redline’s robust, low-latency and high-capacity solutions are perfectly suited to support our Thailand customer’s unique offshore wellhead requirements,” comments Richard Yoon, CEO of Redline Communications. “Redline looks forward to providing ongoing mission-critical data infrastructure solutions for this leading petroleum exploration and production company as it continues to expand throughout Asia.”
