“Building our Houston team is one more investment in the Oil and Gas sector as we serve an unprecedented number of the most data-intensive customers in the industry,” said MTN CEO and Oil and Gas industry veteran Errol Olivier. “We are proud to serve offshore sites around the world and have over one hundred employees supporting them. With our recent award of the global Technip fleet, our customer confidence levels affirm our investment in Houston”

General Manager Santos Venegas and Senior Sales Engineer Keith Morgan have joined the MTN Oil and Gas Business Unit from Harris CapRock. Ty Garner, business development executive, has joined from Telemar.

MTN solutions have become long-standing tools in sectors such as commercial shipping, cruise, government, ferries and megayachts. The company’s global network is unmatched, meshed and redundant, enabling services ideal for global fleets and individual vessels, such as remotely-operated/semi-submersibles, research vessels, pipelay and derricks, and supply and multipurpose offshore ships, as well as rigs and platforms.  The team brings a proven ability to nimbly and flexibly anticipate, customize solutions for, and quickly address customer challenges.  Oil and Gas customers have schedules that constantly shift and network demands that regularly vary. The MTN Lean Six Sigma approach to issues resolution enables quick recovery, safety, operational excellence and continuous improvement.

In addition, the MTN Network Operations Center is responsive, flexible and manned 24/7/365 with knowledgeable, experienced technical support staff.  Organizations needing communications and content in some of the most far-reaching locations around the world rely on MTN for End-User Products (Internet, voice, live global TV and events streaming and mobile apps), Enterprise Solutions (crew welfare tools, Web portals and video conferencing), and Technical Solutions (network management, ship-tracking, onboard diagnostic tools and bandwidth optimization).
