Solutions to Keep Data Flowing in Oil & Gas Production Environments


Wireless networking is often the most cost-effective option to improve reliability, safety and efficiency across oil and gas infrastructure—especially in applications that involve extremely harsh conditions, corrosive gases and blast furnaces. It has become increasingly vital to support monitoring and control of devices in remote, difficult-to-reach areas.

Belden’s industrial wireless solutions are the answer for fast, stable and secure communication. These solutions make network expansion faster and easier without the need for costly wired infrastructure. They also improve operator safety and efficiency by eliminating the need to travel to isolated locations, supporting remote diagnostics.

  • Comprehensive, high-speed 4G/LTE and 5G families of ruggedized cellular routers and gateways compatible with specified cellular spectrum frequencies around the globe.
  • WLAN and WWAN short- to long-range access points that meet the latest IEEE 802.11 standards for reliable, high-speed wireless communications.
  • Web-based interfaces and embedded GPS options for location tracking and remote configuration, monitoring and troubleshooting from a centralized location.
  • Wireless I/O radio modules for replicating digital and analog process signals to remote I/O SCADA devices.
  • Enhanced security functionality with secure VPN tunneling, AES encryption and the latest WEP/WPS security protocols for user authentication.

Oil Refinery uses Industrial Wireless for Remote Monitoring

Industrial Automation

Looking back in time it might be fair to say that smoke signals used during America’s Wild West days were one of the original wireless communications. For their era, they were pretty effective.

Securing an Industrial Network vs. IT Networks

Industrial Cybersecurity

Previously we looked at the question of 'Why are PLCs so insecure?' Today we are going to come at SCADA security from another angle, which is 'Why is securing Industrial Networks different than securing IT Networks?' We will also look at three ways...
