The offshore industry is facing more challenges and greater complexity than ever before. As world energy demand continues to grow companies have to increase both their discoveries and the efficiency of their operations. Discoveries are increasingly made in remote, deep-water, international locations.
nCentric supports oil & gas operators in the transition to the digital oilfield by providing seamless, high-bandwidth communication services between all parties involved in a complex offshore operation.
We develop products that interconnect multiple vessels and rigs with in an ad-hoc self-forming mesh network. This network allows our clients to easily exchange live HD video, synchronize large files, enable M2M communication, etc. By connecting people and processes, we can maximize efficiency and create opportunities to make better decisions faster.
Extending the big VSAT pipe or fibre backhaul connection to all assets in the field can cut down on communication costs for all parties involved, while the bandwidth increases exponentially and latencies become negligible.
When all parties in an offshore operation are connected with a resilient mesh network, the possibilities become virtually limitless. Gone are the days of setting up analog low-quality videotel systems.
nCentric can easily enable live streaming of HD subsea video from ROV cameras between all assets involved.
Satellite communication has been in use for many years. It is the most widespread technology; it is well known and widely used in offshore communication. When no high-bandwidth backhaul connection is available, nCentric can implement cutting-edge video technologies to allow high-quality live streaming over a limited VSAT uplink to our geographically distributed datacenters.
Engineers can monitor and assist offshore operations as if they were onsite with latencies lower than two seconds.
