Redline Communications, which is a Canada-based wireless communications network designer and manufacturer, has been selected in this connection by Telephone Electronic Corporation (TEC India), a network and communications system integrator in India.
The company’s RDL-3000 virtual fiber solution will be used at ONGC’s Neelam Heera Asset site. The solution is expected to provide high-capacity, high-speed, long-range wireless connectivity for 29 remote fields, both onshore and offshore.

“Redline’s Virtual Fiber solutions are proven to provide extreme reliability and performance that enable true digital transformation of data infrastructure in the oil and gas industry.”
According to Redline Communications, its virtual fiber technology provides 99.9% of connectivity to sensors and machines. Certified to operate in zone 2 environments, the virtual fiber technology is said to enable industrial businesses in moving critical data at the most crucial times and isolated locations.
Dilip Ajmeras — Managing Director of TEC India said: “Success in the oil and gas sector plays a vital role in our economy and impacts other industries in India.
