In addition to basic voice and data communications access, oil and gas companies demand more bandwidth to support real-time applications that improve productivity, security and crew welfare. SCCI Alphatrack provides TDMA-based shared bandwidth solutions allowing multiple locations to access a centralised pool of satellite capacity based on real-time demand. This coupled with wireless, LTE systems, security and surveillance and asset tracking provides a complete package for our customers.

SCADA networks provided over satellite provides a reliable method of collecting data and monitoring information from remote sites including alarms from oil wells and gas compressor stations, as well as providing remote control of valves and compressors.
In emergency situations reliable communications with the outside world can mean the difference between life and tragedy. Using satellite communication site personnel can access emergency assistance quickly. This ability to communicate means remote crews can call for help and respond quickly in case of injury or emergency.
