The need for on-the-move broadband communications to the oil and gas sector will only continue to surge in the years ahead. While Ka-band will play a role, customer demand is not being driven by a move to one particular frequency. As providers are forced to conduct operations in increasingly remote and harsh environments, offering reliable global solutions will only become more challenging, and the operators in the best position to respond will deliver the most throughput using all spectrum bands. Providing open, flexible network choices to customers is the only way to meet their needs, and our industry must continue to invest in its infrastructure if we are to keep pace with future bandwidth requirements.
Watch Intelsat’s Trevor Willoughby discuss how Intelsat EpicNG will support the oil and gas sector at GVF Oil & Gas in Aberdeen, Scotland, 9:45-11:15am (BST) on May 13.
