Members of Infrastructure Networks’ senior leadership will present at ENTELEC 2019, April 23-25, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. The leadership team will present in-depth industry technical education and training, as part of the ENTELEC 2019 Technical Education Program, which features 30+ hours of technical education along with “hands-on” technical training. The sessions INET will take part in are as follows:
Tuesday, April 23, 1:30-2:30 p.m.: Evolving Field Communications: Partnerships at the Edge, presented by Stanley Hughey, Room: 350 F
Infrastructure Networks’ Chief Strategy Officer and Founder Stanley Hughey will discuss the emergence of communications solutions that can be deployed with little or no capital investment on the part of the operator. These solutions provide long term fixed cost connectivity in support of legacy field automation infrastructure while enabling the implementation of bandwidth intensive edge technologies. Field wide connectivity is achieved in partnership with the operator by leveraging the solution provider’s “boots-on-the-ground” field support, engineering and project management capabilities to combine private LTE, fiber access, licensed point-to-point and integration of legacy communications technology. Hughey will present INET customer case studies that show how its customers used this approach to solve industry-wide remote communication problems and create standardized, scalable communications across areas of operation. INET will share the economic benefits of this innovative “Solution-as-a-Service” approach and the hidden cost associated with traditional field communications deployments and ownership.
Tuesday, April 23, 3:30-4:30 p.m.: Vendor Shoot Out – Narrowband vs. Broadband; Licensed vs. Unlicensed – The debate continues…, with VP of Development John Nagel, Room: 360 C
This session explores current topics relevant to the industry. This will be a lively discussion and audience questions and participation are welcome.
Wednesday, April 24, 12:30-1:30 p.m.: Panelists include: Louis Lambert, Redline; Al Sinopili, Chevron; Stanley Hughey, Infrastructure Networks; Matt Mangriotis, Cambium Networks and more. Room: Exhibit Hall B3 Technical Theatre
Industrial IoT has been connecting assets over a myriad of wired, wireless and mesh networks for a long time, in part due to the concerns that a single network was not flexible enough to serve the many application specific requirements across heavy industries as Oil & Gas, Utilities or Transportation. Resulting in multiple networks in play, each optimized for a specific application requirement such as SCADA or voice. Private Cellular Networks dedicated to a single owner of a Building, Campus or Oil Field are fast being globally deployed by asset heavy Industries, Enterprises and Neutral Hosts to assure improved resiliency and exclusive access, independent of wide area network fluctuations, with coverage designed to meet very specific application needs. Dedicated 4G-LTE cellular radio equipment with a specified path to 5G is available from a wide and established ecosystem of vendors enabling full mobility, broadband data performance along with Low-Power-Long Range communication, predictable latency and quality of service designed to service a multitude of applications including traditional point-to-point & multipoint voice, SCADA mission critical communications, video surveillance and emerging IoT use cases. This Panel will introduce options to capitalize and scale Private 4G-LTE Cellular Networks using Licensed, Shared and Unlicensed spectrum. Join us for a Q&A with experts who can provide real world experience deploying, managing and connecting assets over networks for Oil & Gas Upstream and Mid-Stream and Downstream assets.
Thursday, April 25, 9-10am: Vendor Shoot Out – Solutions for the Emerging Digital Oil Field Technologies, with Executive VP of Professional Services Carl MacKinnon. Room: Exhibit Hall B3 Café
This will be a lively discussion and audience questions and participation are welcome. With new technologies becoming more prevalent in Oil and Gas processes that give companies promise to do “More with Less”, meaning utilizing emerging technologies such as IIoT, Cloud Based Services, Edge Computing, as well as enhanced Public and Private based wireless infrastructures that increase efficiency, security, scalability and robustness, all while giving real-time data resolution. Embracing these new methodologies may allow companies to look at SCADA in a whole new way. This Vendor Shoot Out will talk about Private vs Public Networks, the advantages of Traditional SCADA Networks vs Cloud based systems, edge computing, as well as offer the audience the chance to give input on where they see emerging technologies fitting into their company ecosystem.
Additional INET team members will be located at booth #203 at the conference and expo, which brings together thousands of industry professionals, exhibitors and vendors to share knowledge and educate each other on the latest developments in energy communications and technology. Osprey Informatics will be co-located with INET, where you can learn more about Osprey Reach, the enterprise visual monitoring solution for exception-based management of field operations, assets, and facilities. INET is the exclusive distributor of Osprey Informatics products and services in the US, including the Permian, Bakken, Eagle Ford and Scoop & Stack.
