Local Management for network and satellite communications to deploy on newest rigs in Songa fleet

Uplogix to manage oilfield production communications services on the Songa Equinox and Songa Endurance

Back to press releases

AUSTIN, Texas (February 27, 2014) – Uplogix Local Management has been chosen as the technology to manage network and satellite communications infrastructure for two of the newest rigs for Songa Offshore. 
 
By deploying the combination of an Uplogix Local Manager (LM), which connects to network infrastructure such as Cisco routers and switches and satellite communications devices like SeaTel antenna controllers and iDirect modems, and an Uplogix LEO-I Iridium modem, technicians in the teleport can access gear without a site visit. Remote troubleshooting, configuration and management can all be accomplished as if a technician was onsite.
 
“Deployments on drilling platforms benefit from Local Management because it’s almost like having a skilled technician onsite monitoring the equipment at all times,” said James Dollar, Uplogix CTO. “When issues arise, the Uplogix LM can take automated actions plus notify and connect the NOC over the primary link or an out-of-band connection like an Iridium modem.”
 
With an array of specialized drivers for satellite modems and antenna controllers, Uplogix is a satcom standard for ensuring network uptime and lowering support costs. Uplogix solutions have been deployed in the maritime communications market for about a decade.
 
Uplogix will be exhibiting at the Satellite 2014 exhibition, booth #9023 in Washington DC, on March 11-13. For more about Uplogix applications in the satellite market, visit uplogix.com/satellite.
