Oil and Gas Pipeline & Distribution Management

Oil and Gas Pipeline & Distribution Management



Oil & Gas extraction, transportation and distribution networks operate a critical service in often harsh environments and must be managed to exceptionally high levels of consistency and safety. In order to achieve exceptional levels of operational efficiency, operators need a reliable, real-time view of the entire network.

Due to their rugged industrial housing, redundant communication channels and powerful remote management feature, Robustel routers are becoming a favored product of companies in the Oil & Gas Sector monitoring their networks.

Ideal for connecting remote field data from sensors and SCADA systems, Robustel devices enable oil & gas distributors to develop a smart system for managing their entire supply chain.

Robustel Benefits at a glance

  • Rugged Form Factor – Robustel routers are designed for solid performance in harsh environmental conditions and extreme temperatures. They even come with an option IP67 rated housing for outdoor deployment (Typhoon Case Link).
  • High EMC Compliance – Compliant to a high EMC standard level means Robustel routers are safe to operate in high electromagnetic areas.
  • Dual-SIM Routers – Robustel routers come equipped with Dual-SIM slots and allow seamless switching between multiple carriers in the event of a network outage or signal loss.
  • ‘Failover mode’ – Routers can be configured to use a standard internet connection (ADSL/fibre) as primary internet connection & only use 4G data on primary connection loss.
  • Remote device management – Often routers deployed in sensitive environments may be difficult to access due to location or security requirements. All Robustel routers come with a powerful suite of remote management tools allowing remote users to support devices without visiting the site.


Create your own application using RobustOS

All Robustel routers run the Linux-based, “RobustOS” operating system.

Because Robustel write the router Operating System in-house, Robustel’s levels of tech support and software customisation far exceed the typical capabilities available in the market.

This means that users deploying precision agriculture solution can develop a dedicated application for Robustel’s routers to customise the product’s behaviour to exactly meet the project’s demands.

An example of such an application would be to locally poll a Modbus device from a 4G router and only send an alert across the cellular connection if a trigger condition is met, for example, an oil quality sensor shows that the oil in a system must be changed. Alerts can be sent in a variety of forms including SMS and email.


Cloud Device Management and VPN Access through RCMS

Robustel Cloud Manager Service (RCMS) is Robustel’s custom IoT software platform and eco-system. Connecting your Robustel device to RCMS opens up a world of applications to make managing devices, connectivity and provisioning simple.

Use the Robustlink Device Manager App inside RCMS to instantly access your connected devices from anywhere. Allowing you remotely configure, update apps & firmware, debug error logs and view data usage at any time.

Use the RobustVPN App inside RCMS to create allocate one or many of your deployed devices to a VPN group which can they be accessed through the RVPN desktop application to access your deployed devices without the security risk of a public IP address or the need for private Static IP allocation from your carrier.
