Computing and Network Communications for Drilling Rig Monitoring

A rig floor is a demanding environment. Systems integrators must carefully plan out the equipment and services to ensure efficiency and ease of maintenance. To achieve optimum rig performance, the monitoring system on the working platform is a critical factor. In particular, an effective Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and converged network communications help rig operators to make good decisions without delay. Meanwhile, maintenance directly influences the performance of the whole rig team. Keeping equipment working, and quickly replacing out-of-order parts, ensures efficiency and reduces total cost of ownership.
