Infrastructure Networks Expands Private LTE Network for Energy Industry
Tuesday, January 07, 2020 | Comments

Infrastructure Networks completed an expansion of its private Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, adding capacity in existing areas, doubling geographic coverage and upgrading the network to be 5G ready.

The resulting network covers more than 130,000 miles across four major energy basins in the continental U.S.: Permian/Delaware in west Texas and southeast New Mexico, Eagle Ford in south Texas, Scoop/Stack in Oklahoma, and Bakken in North Dakota. The company used Nokia radio access network (RAN) and microwave technologies. The LTE network is positioned to meet the mission-critical needs of the oil and gas industry across drilling, completions, production and midstream operations, a statement said.

“To support the remote operations of our energy customers, Infrastructure Networks has acquired wireless spectrum in major energy basins in the Lower 48, built out our network and established a field service operation,” CEO Mark Slaughter said. “With 24/7 monitoring, field support, guaranteed uptime and quality of service, Infrastructure Networks is uniquely situated to serve the demanding nature of oil and gas operations as compared to ‘best efforts’ services from consumer wireless companies such as AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. We expect to grow our network coverage more broadly into additional North American energy basins as market activity warrants.”

Infrastructure Networks is a telecommunications provider to the energy industry, helping enable industrial internet of things (IIoT), communications and connectivity in remote locations across North America.
