Oilfield Communications Solutions is defined as the technology used to gather data and information from field sites and transmit it through communication networks, as required by the oil and gas industry. Oilfield communications technologies and solutions enable communications between oilfield sites and offices with reduced time and cost. The solutions are primarily aimed at achieving the operational efficiency targets set by the oil and gas companies and the services are aimed at enabling smarter and coordinated decisionmaking, and mitigating the risks and vulnerabilities of the market, by using efficient tools and techniques, along with meeting the end-to-end needs of all the allied industries spanning the entire oil and gas industry value chain.
The vendors are placed into four categories based on their performance in each criterion: “Vanguards,” “Innovators,” “Emerging,” and “Dynamic.” We have evaluated top 25 vendors, which includes Huawei Technologies, Siemens AG, SpeedCast International Ltd., ABB Ltd., Alcatel-Lucent S.A., Inmarsat Plc., Baker Hughes Inc., Hughes Network Systems LLC, Tait Communications, Ceragon Networks Ltd, RAD Data Communications, Inc., CommScope, Rignet, Inc., Airspan Networks, Inc., Commtel Networks, Inc., IPX Communications, Novatel, Juniper Networks, Omega, RADWIN, Redline Communications, Network Innovations, Dragonwave, Inc., and Alvarion Technologies.
Vendors who fall into this category receive high scores for most evaluation criteria. They have an established product portfolio and have a very strong market presence. They should provide mature and reputable oilfield communications solutions. They also have strong business strategies.
Innovators demonstrate substantial product innovations as compared to their competitors. They should have very focused product portfolio. However, they do not have very strong growth strategies for their overall business.
Dynamic are established vendors with very strong business strategies. However, they have a low product portfolio. They focus on a specific type of technology related to the product.
Emerging vendors have niche product offerings and are starting to gain their position in the market. They do not have much strong business strategies as compared to other established vendors. They might be new entrants in the market and require some more time before getting significant traction in the market.
