Globecomm has successfully completed a 158 Mb VSAT network, in partnership with one of the country’s leading telecommunications suppliers, for a European-based client that is conducting oil exploration at sites in Iraq.
The network supports dedicated Internet, data and voice connections to manage the complex exploration process and to provide the crew with essential communications. The VSAT network is combined with 100 Mb terrestrial microwave links in a managed service that includes a Cisco call manager telephone system terminating calls at the Globecomm Europe teleport in the Netherlands. The design of the dual-path network provides complete redundancy for all sites.
“The main exploration site alone has a crew camp that supports 5000 people working and living there,” said Patrick Visser of Globecomm Europe. “Communications services will be heavily used for both business and private purposes, and it has been engineered to guarantee a high level of quality and reliability.”
