Major Demonstration Scheduled for New Mexico Oilfield

Texas Energy Network ("TEN") has announced that it will be the first communications company to deploy LTE technology to benefit Oil and Gas companies’ growing data requirements. TEN will hold a major demonstration in New Mexico in conjunction with Alcatel-Lucent.

Alcatel-Lucent will provide all the wireless technology for the end-to-end LTE network using its LTE on Wheels truck. The demo will show a live LTE network with working data devices such as laptops with 1 Mbps data uplink speeds.

Using this technology, the network could be connected directly to an oil site sensor or linked to a monitoring camera on a pipeline sending back live video images.

TEN plans to use LTE as the core technology behind a national wireless broadband network dedicated to and designed around the needs of remote critical infrastructure companies - initially the oil and gas industry - delivering data at greater bandwidths with less latency to improve security, visibility and productivity in virtually every remote process.
