Explore a few of the key features that make EXEDRA ideal for your business.
LoRaWAN® for Oil and Gas
LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) is a network that allows battery-operated devices to wirelessly connect and send data over the internet. The average distance LoRaWAN covers in rural areas is about 10-15KM. The Internet of Things (IoT) is predicted to unlock approximately $1 trillion of value for the industry, assisting companies to digitize, optimize, and automate processes for impactful and long-lasting results, including reduced costs and improved safety and reliability of operations. However, obstacles such as the short life span of battery-powered devices, short-range communications, and high deployment costs are hindering companies from achieving this potential. As the breadth of IoT applications in oil and gas continues to evolve, LoRaWAN® is rapidly gaining momentum as the ideal technology to address these constraints with cost-effective and highly reliable long-range, low-power IoT connectivity. For many of the applications outlined in this paper, LoRaWAN® has become preferable over traditional communication protocols such as LTE and 4G cellular due to its significantly lower total cost of ownership and lower cost per device.
LoRaWAN® allows solutions to be deployed that wouldn't be economical in the LTE space due to the substantial airtime costs associated with establishing cellular connectivity for each end-device in a network. Lower price points are driving mass wireless sensor deployments, enabling large scale IoT deployments connecting remote sensor and machine data to analytics platforms at scale. LoRaWAN®'s multi-usage capabilities accommodate a high capacity of IoT devices in a single network. A carrier-grade LoRaWAN® collection hub, known as a gateway has the capacity to simultaneously send and receive hundreds of messages every second from the devices deployed in its vicinity. This is ample capacity for most oil and gas applications.
IoT sensors are embedded into infrastructure at a wide array of disparate locations to remotely monitor KPIs such as pipe pressure, temperature and flow rate, and transmit alerts for leaks, ruptures and points of failure. This data allows operators to respond in real-time and drastically reduce the risk and impact of downtime.
LoRaWAN® is an ideal technology for asset monitoring and management applications, as it is capable of transmitting over extremely long ranges in rural and remote environments. The bi-directional communication ability of LoRaWAN® enables not only rich data collection and asset monitoring from sensor devices, but also the ability to send messages from an application back down to the device in the field. This is particularly useful in oil and gas operations as it accommodates remote control over assets to handle issues such as emergency shutdowns and remote field operations. Without the adoption of IoT and LoRaWAN® solutions, the speed at which these issues can be identified and addressed in remote field locations is significantly slower.
