Huawei unveils eLTE-DSA solution for the oil & gas industry

Huwaei, a Chinese global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices has showcased its 4.5G-based, 5G-oriented eLTE-DSA solution at the ongoing Moscow International Oil and Gas Exhibition (MIOGE). The Shenzhen-headquartered company leverages wireless narrowband Discrete Spectrum Aggregation (DSA) technology to help the oil and gas industry build an energy Internet of Things (IoT).

For the oil and gas industry, wireless eLTE technology has become an effective means of communication to support real-time monitoring and mobile inspection of systems and devices, especially in remote and dangerous areas, according to Huwaei. It furthered in a press statement: The new eLTE-DSA solution overcomes the challenge of insufficient continuous dedicated spectrum resources around the world by using 4.5G technology to aggregate traditional VHF/UHF narrowband discrete spectrum into broadband spectrum resources. The solution supports a minimum latency of 20 milliseconds and mass connections of 4,000 users per cell to enable IoT technologies within the oil and gas industry. This will help oil and gas enterprises drive operational efficiency, seamlessly add new services and help customers achieve energy savings.

“Huawei is committed to bringing digital technologies to every energy company. 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,” Jerry Ji, President of Energy Sector of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said.

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