The Middle East is home to a constantly expanding oil and gas industry often operating in remote locations. Relying on traditional cellular signals isn’t feasible in these locations, as they don’t have coverage available. M2M can provide coverage to even the most remote of locations, radios can become a lifeline and having always available networks is crucial in the field to keep people, systems, and facilities connected. This not only ensures productivity but ensure the safety of these operations. M2M communications technologies include satellite phones, which rely on a broad network of satellites to deliver cellular data and internet data from anywhere in the world.
Alongside communications, M2M connectivity can be used to monitor oil fields and power stations, report data and extend internet and data connectivity to remote and rural areas.
