It’s almost like having a skilled technician onboard monitoring and managing satcom and networking equipment at all times.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
Uplogix Local Management has been chosen as the technology to manage network and satellite communications infrastructure for two of the newest rigs for Songa Offshore.
By deploying the combination of an Uplogix Local Manager (LM), which connects to network infrastructure such as Cisco routers and switches and satellite communications devices like SeaTel antenna controllers and iDirect modems, and an Uplogix LEO-I Iridium modem, technicians in the teleport can access gear without a site visit. Remote troubleshooting, configuration and management can all be accomplished as if a technician was onsite.
“Deployments on drilling platforms benefit from Local Management because it’s almost like having a skilled technician onsite monitoring the equipment at all times,” said James Dollar, Uplogix CTO. “When issues arise, the Uplogix LM can take automated actions plus notify and connect the NOC over the primary link or an out-of-band connection like an Iridium modem.”
With an array of specialized drivers for satellite modems and antenna controllers, Uplogix is a satcom standard for ensuring network uptime and lowering support costs. Uplogix solutions have been deployed in the maritime communications market for about a decade.
Uplogix provides the first fully integrated local management solution. Our co-located management appliances automate routine administration, maintenance and recovery tasks—securely and regardless of network availability. In comparison, traditional network and systems management depends on the network, uses multiple tools, and remains labor intensive. Uplogix puts the power of your most trusted IT administrator everywhere, all the time.
