A top-tier oilfield service company which is delivering its advanced well services to assist in the development of tight gas resources in the Cooper Basin, Australia, is using “Hermes Connect,” the latest wireless VSAT solution.
Shaun Young, Regional Director of Hermes Datacomms added, “The company we are providing service to delivers the highest technical services wherever and whenever the customer needs it. Hermes Datacomms specializes in providing communications in difficult and challenging environments. The Cooper Basin is under a 130,000 square kilometer patch of sand dunes that extends from the north-east corner of South Australia into Queensland. It is desolate and exploration is a matter of hard work and persistence, having a rugged, easily deployed self-contained VSAT is crucial in the Cooper Basin.”
Hermes Connect is a skid-mounted system which delivers rapid deployment and offers high-availability connections in a portable package, with the added benefit of lower deployment costs and reduced bandwidth costs. The unit is totally self-contained, with no requirement for a separate indoor unit, and with a local wireless access built in as well as data cable connection points. Once the power supply is connected, the unit will automatically deploy, lock to the satellite and connect to the Internet and/or private voice and data networks as required within five minutes.
