Sponsored by Businesswire

Infrastructure Networks, Inc. (“INET”) announced today that it has
completed a major expansion of its private LTE network, adding capacity
in existing areas, doubling geographic coverage and upgrading the
network to be 5G-ready. The resulting network now covers over 130,000
miles across four major energy basins in the Continental U.S.:
Permian/Delaware in West Texas and Southeast New Mexico; Eagle Ford in
South Texas; Scoop/Stack in Oklahoma; and Bakken in North Dakota. INET
teamed with Nokia for this network expansion and upgrade, utilizing
Nokia Airscale RAN (radio access network) and Wavence Microwave
technologies. INET’s LTE network is positioned to meet the mission
critical needs of the oil and gas industry across drilling, completions,
production and midstream operations.

Mark Slaughter, CEO of INET, said, “With data generation growing rapidly
at the well pad, INET provides the vital link to deliver actionable
information and insights to decisionmakers in the office. Further, INET
partners with advanced analytics providers, allowing them to scale
innovative technologies quickly across INET’s installed customer base
and to deliver upon the promise of the Industrial Internet (IIoT) in oil
and gas operations. Operators, drillers and oilfield service companies
can now embrace automation, artificial intelligence analytics and
machine learning, only made accessible with next generation,
high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity. The robustness, reliability
and sophistication of our LTE platform brings accessibility at scale to
IIoT applications, helping oil and gas operators embrace the digital
revolution in the oilfield.”

Scott Cohen, SVP US Major Account Sales at Nokia, said, “We value our
partnership with INET and are excited to help enable the advanced
services that this new network expansion will deliver. From IIoT, video
analytics and automation to sensors making workers safer, the power of
low-latency and mission critical services to the oil and gas industry is

“To support the remote operations of our energy customers, INET has
acquired wireless spectrum in major energy basins in the Lower 48, built
out our network and established a field service operation,” Slaughter
added. “With 24/7 monitoring, field support, guaranteed uptime and
quality of service, INET is uniquely situated to serve the demanding
nature of oil and gas operations as compared to “best efforts” services
from consumer wireless companies such as AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. We
expect to grow our network coverage more broadly into additional North
American energy basins as market activity warrants.
