Take the Office to the Field with Cambium Networks

September 13th, 2022

For years, technicians operating in oil and gas fields have  operated in isolation in their daily work. Their routine consisted of driving to the field to collect data, take notes and collect images of f ield assets, and then travel to the next location.

At the end of the day, they would go to a remote office and upload report files, download work orders, and make calls. While most petrochemical operations have equipped the field assets with SCADA automation networks for equipment, some are finding that overlaying the Field Area Network (FAN) with wireless broadband connectivity  is a sensible way to provide real time information required. 

Why Wireless Broadband

Industrial operations with broad field operations need immediate access to information to increase  operation efficiency, and improve employee and customer safety. Private fixed wireless broadband  networks offer proven secure communication, and can be rapidly deployed to provide connectivity across the entire field area network at a fraction of the cost of wired or fiber technology.

  • Long-range, high-capacity licensed microwave Point-to-Point (PTP) backhaul.
  • 6 – 38 GHz licensed spectrum.
  • Multi-gigabits throughput capacity.
  • High-speed Point-to-Multipoint (PMP) wireless distribution transport.
  • 900 MHz, 2.4, 3, 5 GHz spectrum.
  • 200+ Mbps throughput capacity.
  • 802.11ac WiFi outdoor access layer.
  • 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi.
  • IP67-rated industrial grade components.

Maximize efficiency while minimizing costs with a private network

Using LINKPlanner wireless network planning software, the operator was able to rapidly develop a detailed network configuration including a prediction of throughput and performance at all locations throughout the field area. This private network is under complete control and is dedicated to the exclusive use of the industrial operator…
