Managing Remote Network Elements on Oil Drilling Rigs and Production Platforms

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Drill rigs and production platforms present a difficult challenge for network support personnel. When a router or firewall located on a distant petroleum production facility becomes unresponsive, NOC personnel need to fix the problem immediately in order to avoid downtime, but the remote location of the site often makes a quick response somewhat problematic. Fortunately, WTI’s RSM-8R8 Remote Site Managers can drastically simplify the task of dealing with network problems on remote drill rigs, production platforms and support vessels.
