Low CAPEX Network Upgrade


In 2016, a large independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company expressed a need to upgrade an existing network in Texas in order to meet increasing data flow demands and implement field software applications that would help boost production. A Fortune 500 company, its operations focus onshore in the United States and Canada. The company produces about 1.6 billion cubic feet of natural gas and about 130,000 barrels of natural gas liquids per day.

The upgrade would replace an existing network of FreeWave HTPlus radios with new FreeWave ZumLink Z9-PE radios in high profile pilot project. Although the existing HTPlus network was still functioning to specs in a hot and humid environment, many of the radios were nearing a decade of constant operation and the company wanted to ensure that ZumLink would meet their future performance expectations.
