RigNet Launches iDirect Australia Network

Press Release
Wednesday, May 01, 2013

RigNet, provider of remote communications solutions to the oil and gas industry, has installed an iDirect Series 15100 Universal Satellite Hub in Adelaide, Australia.

The installation will allow RigNet to extend its services to Australia and the Asia Pacific region. The business expansion will enable RigNet to tap into growing market segments, including onshore natural gas and oil exploration, energy, mining and maritime. iDirect is a provider of satellite-based IP communications technology.

The hub addition enables RigNet to expand its global presence and offer a managed service for land-based drilling applications and remote connectivity in the greater Asia Pacific region. The investment follows RigNet's installation of a hub in the Middle East to extend RigNet's VSAT coverage in the region and enhance the company's satellite service portfolio for customers in the oil and gas sector. 

The network will be built on iDirect's Evolution iDX 3.1 software, which enables service providers to support both narrowband SCADA and broadband applications on the same network and scale to tens of thousands of sites. iDX 3.1 features the X1 remote, a low power, compact remote that reduces the average power required for a given satellite terminal by as much as 50%.  An outdoor version of the X1 features IP67 weatherproof casing, an extended temperature range, passive cooling and multiple power options.
