Redline Communications Group Inc., a provider of specialized broadband wireless offerings, has received and shipped a $2 million order for their RDL-3000 industrial wireless system and associated products to a major oil and gas company.

The system is being deployed in the U.S. and will provide communications between two drilling rigs in South Texas and North Dakota and the centralized control offices of one of the world’s largest oil extraction companies, the firm said in a release. The name of the company has not been released.

Wireless Redline devices mounted on towers and rigs deliver connectivity across hundreds of miles of terrain and Redline’s patent-pending Rapid Auto Steering (RAS) technology allows wireless coverage to operate uninterrupted even as drilling rigs move from location to location.

With the Redline Virtual Fiber network, live video feeds are delivered wirelessly from drilling rigs to head office, enhancing team collaboration and enabling faster decision-making. 

Extending voice communications with VoIP and providing access to corporate information systems out into the field helps increase productivity, and a video surveillance system will monitor operations, ensuring the safety of personnel and equipment, the company said.
