Oil and Gas Industry Communication Solutions

Achieve Greater Safety, Intelligent Production And Asset Security.

In the new economy, businesses face challenges that would have been unimaginable just a few decades ago. New competitors, new routes to market, increased customer expectations, and greater scrutiny come with the territory. In a world where everyone carries a computer connected to unlimited information and a high-definition camera in their pocket, it stands to reason that we now find ourselves adrift in an ocean of data.

And yet, the targets for all successful businesses remain the same. Exceed customer expectations. Operate profitably. Invest wisely. Most importantly, empower and protect your most valuable asset – your personnel – since they are the key to achieving all of your other goals.

Communicate Without Boundaries to Boost Safety and Efficiency
What if your staff could communicate with each other instantly and securely through push-to-talk (PTT) communications between smartphones, laptops, tablets, radios, landlines, or other connected devices? What if it did not matter where they were in the world, or to what network – LTE, LMR, LAN, Wi-Fi - they were connected? What if they were able to use a rich application ecosystem and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to extract valuable intelligence from the flood of data, and then share that information instantly with the team members who most need to know? This capability exists today. Take the first step toward a safer, more successful, and more efficient business by taking your communications further with Team Communications from Motorola Solutions.

Communicate Seamlessly
When an answer is needed, an order is delayed, or a safety situation arises, nothing is faster than push-to-talk. Motorola Team Communications provide the instant group communications needed for high-performing teams. Communicate one-to-one or one-to-many across radios in challenging noise environment, and use the WAVE™ broadband push-to-talk (PTT) application on smartphones, tablets, or laptops to expand the same conversation to wherever network connectivity exists. Employees who do not use a radio can contact those who do, and vice versa, instantly. In an emergency, priority voice and data communications guarantee that critical information is heard by all, bypassing routine conversations. When your team can reach anyone necessary to resolve critical issues – regardless of device, or physical location, deadlines are met, promises are kept, and employee satisfaction improves. Remove the roadblocks and improve outcomes with Team Communications from Motorola Solutions.

Communicate Without Boundaries
It used to be easier. You had a team in one location, everyone carried a radio, and when a problem arose it was discussed and quickly resolved.

Today, you still have staff carrying radios, but now there are other critical team members who don’t need or want to carry a radio. They use smartphones, or tablets, or laptops as their preferred device. Instead of everyone on the team residing in one location, team members are scattered across the county, the state, the country, or even the world. Technology has provided more operational visibility – GPS locations, alarms, sensors, voiceover IP, even video – but this data is often stranded in different corners of the organization. There may even be multiple focal points for dispatching this data, specialized to the needs of a smaller group and the network (LMR, LTE, Wi-Fi or LAN) they use to communicate. These pockets of information lead to delays and frustration when the right decisions must be made faster than ever before to be safe, successful, and efficient.

Tear down the technological walls stranding your personnel and critical data with the power of Motorola Team Communications. Using WAVE Workgroup Communications, network, device, and geographic boundaries are overcome – your team members can connect from their preferred device to other team members, anywhere, any time. Simply push, talk, and succeed.

Communicate With Added Intelligence
The stream of information flowing through a typical business today can be overwhelming. If key information is not extracted and used to make the business better, then it is simply data piling up in a storage drive somewhere. Are you fully utilizing information from your dispatch application? Video surveillance? GPS tracking? Integrated command and control system? Sensors? Monitors? Alarms?

Within this stream of information is the intelligence that separates the businesses that succeed from those that fail. A more efficient route. A root cause behind seemingly unrelated issues. A pattern of sensor trips indicating a larger issue. An inventory shortage that will impact the business. An alarm warning that someone is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

By connecting every member of the group regardless of device, Team Communications unlocks the potential of your company’s data. The critical piece of intelligence needed to make your business safer… more successful… or more efficient can now be communicated – instantly – by the person who knows to the people who need to know.

Assure the Safety and Security of Your Personnel
Keeping every member of the organization safe is the overriding responsibility of all businesses. Maintaining the security of a facility demands excellent communication under all circumstances. Whether the issue is an injury in the facility, a disgruntled employee growing belligerent in the HR department, or a suspicious package left in the lobby, resolving the situation quickly and safely relies upon instant, clear communications. In the event that local public safety agencies are called, your security team must be able to provide first responders with precise information about the incident and quickly direct them to the correct location.

Team Communications keeps all your employees connected and ensures that critical emergency information is shared with everyone at the push of a button. With specialized radios for hazardous environments and Lone Worker and Man Down alerting, Motorola Solutions provides an additional level of protection for radio users in challenging circumstances.

Take Your Communications Further with Motorola Solutions Team Communications

Your staff can connect instantly, without boundaries, and with key information at their fingertips. The safety of all team members and the organization overall is enhanced. The intelligence to improve productivity can be shared immediately with the team members who most need to know. A rich ecosystem of applications to streamline workflows and make your business more efficient awaits. Boost your team’s satisfaction and your company’s bottom line with Team Communications from Motorola Solutions in challenging circumstances.

Faster Communications. Increased Operational Efficiency.

When production goes down, every second counts. WAVE’s unified PTT allows line workers to instantly talk with supervisors whether they’re short on raw materials or simply have a question on procedure. The result is quicker communications and a more efficient workforce. 

Leverage the resources you already have to communicate with employees on their own devices. WAVE extends your radio’s reach to those who may not carry radios. Now, the IT director at a convention or the supervisor away from the plant can talk on their smartphones with radio users at the plant.

WAVE connects to virtually any device – smartphones, laptops, tablets, and landlines – on any public or private mobile data network, including Wi-Fi. You get seamless and secure connectivity, affordable push-to-talk, and the freedom to keep service plans and devices.

The Advantages of Digital Radio

Advanced digital LMR systems efficiently control both the data and voice aspects of communication – increasing productivity and safety.

Digital radio technology surpasses the capabilities of analog in multiple ways:

  • Exceptionally clear voice communication and noise-cancelling accessories ensure the message gets through the first time, even in noisy environments.
  • Integrated GPS location tracking to locate personnel at any given time, inside or outside the facility.
  • Systems are based on IP architectures with Ethernet interfaces, enabling easier integration with enterprise IT systems.
  • Longer battery life to last throughout lengthy shifts.
  • Greater capacity for hundreds or even thousands of workgroups.
  • Support for voice and data allows integrated applications such as encrypted communications, text messaging, work order ticket management, email gateways, dispatch consoles, remote system management, telephony integration and much more.
  • Seamless integration with the WAVE interoperability platform. This makes it possible for teams of people, in the field or in the office, to effectively communicate and collaborate through voice and data – securely, reliably and in real time.
  • This can be achieved regardless of network, carrier, protocol or device; and whether deployed on-premise or in the cloud.

Push-To-Talk (PTT) is no longer a technology-driven term, it is an enterprise-wide capability. It enables teams to communicate instantly, reliably and productively together to improve business and elevate service. Today, broadband networks and devices are so ubiquitous, that any worker can be connected to any device in their pocket or on their desk with real-time communications through PTT. With interoperable broadband PTT, everyone can become part of the conversation without concern about which device or network they use.

The revolution is being push-to-talked about. Today, virtually everyone can benefit from push-to-talk (PTT) across their organization. PTT brings the immediacy and spontaneity to connect different personnel together seamlessly. Regardless of their location, the network they’re on and the device they use, PTT makes everyone part of the conversation for truly enterprise-wide communications.

PTT affords unlimited opportunities for organizations of every size – from the small police department in a rural community to the large, distributed multinational enterprise that needs supply chain efficiencies across the board. PTT is the pathway that unifies communications and facilitates collaboration for greater operational efficiency. Just as texting and tweets are the conduit for much of social media, PTT is transforming the way enterprises use voice.
