Huawei's eLTE-DSA solution to help oil & gas industry to embrace energy IoT

21 Jun 2018

Huawei has released an eLTE-DSA solution at the 15th Moscow International Oil and Gas Exhibition this week, which it says will help the oil and gas industry build an energy-based Internet of Things.

According to Huawei, the oil and gas industry is reaping the benefits of wireless eLTE technology as a means of communication that supports real-time monitoring and mobile inspection of systems and devices – particularly in remote and dangerous areas.

Huawei’s 4-5G-based, 5G-orientated solution was unveiled at the exhibition and says the solution overcomes the challenge of insufficient continuous dedicated spectrum resources.

It does this by using 4.5G technology to aggregate traditional VHF and UHF narrowband discrete spectrum into broadband spectrum resources.

The solution supports a minimum latency of 20 milliseconds and mass connections of 4000 users per cell, which can enable the oil and gas industry to enable IoT technologies.

Huawei says this will help oil and gas enterprises driver operational efficiency, add new services and ultimately help customers achieve energy savings.

Huawei Enterprise Business Group president of Energy Sector Jerry Ji says the company is committed to bringing digital technologies to every energy firm.

“Huawei focuses on ICT infrastructure and leverages its technical advantages in cloud computing, Big Data, IoT, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to accelerate digital transformation of the oil and gas industry.”

“We provide customers with an open, flexible, and secure ICT infrastructure platform for device-pipe-cloud collaboration to simplify the transition of digital transformation for the energy industry. We are also actively working with ecosystem partners to achieve win-win results, reduce digital transformation costs, and jointly create value for customers.”

Huawei is also delivering what it calls ‘Leading New ICT, Higher Safety and Efficiency’ to the oil and gas industry.

The company cooperates with industry partners to launch ICT solutions covering the upstream, midstream, and downstream sectors to combine digital production with safety control and improve productivity.

These innovative ICT solutions include IoT for oil and gas, digital pipelines, High-Performance Computing (HPC) for operations management, and smart distribution.

At the Moscow International Oil and Gas Exhibition, Huawei is collaborating with industry partners to demonstrate converged innovative ICT solutions such as advanced HPC systems for reservoir simulation and seismic processing, oil and gas IoT, digital pipelines, oil and gas office campuses, Big Data, and cloud computing.

To date, Huawei’s oil and gas solutions have been implemented in 45 countries and regions around the world, serving 70% of the global top 20 oil and gas companies.
