Energy Company Stays Online During Oilfield Power Failure

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Challenge:

One of worlds’ largest oil companies has the mission-critical task of monitoring sensors across large scale oil field deployments. The company’s oil field monitoring equipment and servers must be up 24/7, so redundant power circuits are used whenever possible. The oil company has many single-power-supply network devices that must always be running. Because they are single power supply, if the UPS is taken down, they will also lose power to critical network elements.

The company was looking for a way to provide dual power to network elements and monitoring devices in case of UPS issues. Also, the NOC of the facility wanted the ability to reboot these critical devices and sensors remotely at all times.
