No more sluggish computer networks in oil and gas exploration

Making home and offshore computer networks run faster 0

Friday, September 17, 2021, Webinar, Online

Time: 1pm UK time

We invite you to register for our Digital Energy Journal / Finding Petroleum webinar on Sept 17, 1pm UK time, "No More Sluggish Computer Networks in Oil and Gas Exploration", exploring ways to keep remote oil and gas computer networks running fast.

This is relevant to people working at home, particularly in exploration, who have seen challenges with files taking a long time to open, or remote software taking a long time to load, meaning that much expensive staff time is wasted.

This is also relevant to people working offshore.

The first step to solving the problems is to better understand where the problems are coming from. You need to get a better understanding of how your network is operating, fix problems before the end user is impacted, accelerate the performance of your applications, reduce file opening times.

In this webinar, David Jenkins, solutions architect with Riverbed Technology, will talk about some of the work his company has done with companies like RigNet, Maersk, ABB, ERM and Subsea7, helping them monitor how business critical applications are running, improve application performance and simplify data management.

David works with customers on their projects exploring SD-WAN, Application Acceleration, Cloud Migration, and Network Performance Monitoring. He has over 20 years’ experience working for large enterprises, service providers and vendors.

Slow application performance, difficulty in accessing certain applications, being unable to open files or download files at a reasonable speed can slow down end-user productivity making it difficult and frustrating for employees to complete their day to day tasks. The first step in solving these issues is knowing where and what the problem is, this is where gaining network visibility comes in and enables you to troubleshoot network problems and accelerate application performance.

During this webinar with Riverbed, we will be talking about:

Riverbed Technology has helped several organisations in the Oil and Gas industry maximise the performance of their networks and applications so they can reach the full potential of their IT investments and workforce productivity.

The world’s largest shipping operator, Maersk uses Riverbed’s NPM to monitor business-critical applications and services and provide the ability to troubleshoot performance bottlenecks across the company. Consultancy Environmental Resources Management (ERM) and Subsea7 use Riverbed solutions to reduce latency to improve file transfer speeds and application performance which enables employees around the world to access large files remotely whether they are at sea, or on land. RigNet also uses Riverbed solutions, SaaS Acceleration and SD-WAN to provide reliable connectivity, fast site onboarding and improved user experience. We will discuss these use cases in more detail during the session.
