CA Technologies announced that Norwegian telecommunications systems provider Intelecom Group AS has selected the company’s telecom management system (TMS) to enhance safety and productivity on offshore oil and gas platforms.
The telco selected CA Nimsoft Monitorto to proactively monitor its telecommunications systems on more than 30 platforms, including the 24×7 surveillance of telecommunications systems on behalf of Norway’s largest oil producers.
CA Nimsoft Monitor will also help Intelecom reduce the overhead of its oil and gas customers. Precisely, the solution will help transfer its monitoring process to a lower-cost, centralized shore-based environment.
Intelecom Group has integrated CA Nimsoft Monitor to its Telecom Management System (TMS) to deliver a unified management system that monitors and manages the telecom equipment used in offshore platforms.
With CA Nimsoft Monitor, Intelecom has been able to centralise this surveillance in a remote operation center, company officials said.
It also enables Intelecom’s customers to effectively maintain and report on service level agreement (SLA) metrics.
“CA Technologies unified monitoring solution plays a vital role in the security and service levels of our customers’ oil and gas platforms,” says Karl Johan Krane, key account manager, Oil/Gas and Shipping, Intelecom.
“By quickly detecting the root cause of telecommunications problems and linking these to remote operation centres, CA Nimsoft Monitor is helping our team ensure that our customers deliver 24×7 production of oil and gas—at a reduced cost.”
“With the rising complexity of today’s infrastructure environments, IT operations teams cannot continue to rely on a siloed approach that is based upon complex, non-integrated and point IT monitoring tools,” says Geir Christensen, country manager, CA Technologies Norway.
“By taking a unified monitoring approach similar to Intelecom, organisations can gain better visibility into their infrastructure, improve staff productivity and reduce costs all while improving the experience of their customers,” Christensen added.
