Harris CapRock Communications Provides On-Demand Bandwidth to Nearly 100 Oil and Gas Sites
Solution enables high-quality, secure communications with extended
Delivery to nearly 100 sites around the world
Supports critical applications including data logging, drilling,
streaming video and telemedicine
CapRock Communications has transitioned 36 oil and gas customers to
Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) solution, providing on-demand
bandwidth service to nearly 100 sites around the world.
Harris CapRock’s Advanced VSAT is the first secure, cost-effective
service that dynamically reassigns satellite capacity according to need
and availability in real time to meet the growing communications
requirements of offshore and deepwater operations.
Harris CapRock’s dynamic bandwidth management architecture provides
customers the required capacity for applications ranging from data
logging or drilling at the critical part of a well to streaming a
training video or treating a medical emergency via telemedicine. The
bandwidth is available on demand when needed.
Harris CapRock launched Advanced VSAT in 2014 and first deployed it on
Royal Caribbean Cruises’ global fleet and customer operations networks
in the Gulf of Mexico. It delivered unmatched processing capacity and
nearly 20 times the information rates of a prior solution.
“The Advanced VSAT network answers customers’ need for unprecedented
speed and flexibility in capacity changes,” said Tracey Haslam,
president, Harris CapRock Communications. “We combine next-generation
technologies, partnerships with key equipment providers, and an
unmatched commitment to customer service to help advance oil and gas
Customer response to the service has been very favorable. “On a
traditional single channel per carrier link, any operational challenges
related to connectivity could take weeks, technician site visits and
higher dedicated bandwidth subscriptions to pinpoint, troubleshoot and
solve,” said an offshore Information and Communications Technology
support manager. “Now that we’re on Harris CapRock’s Advanced VSAT
network, we can adjust bandwidth for communications applications as
needed, saving us valuable time and money in the field with a service
provider we trust to be safe and reliable.”
