RigNet, the leading provider of ultra-secure, intelligent networking solutions, has signed a multiyear agreement with Valaris Plc (formerly known as EnscoRowan plc), the world’s largest offshore driller with an offshore fleet that spans all continents on Aug. 7.
Under this agreement, RigNet will continue to provide managed communication services including VSAT technology and RigNet’s Gulf of Mexico (GoM) 5GE network and the fleet-wide rollout of RigNet’s global multiband LTE service.
This agreement is in conjunction with other services currently provided to Valaris including RigNet’s Enhanced Cyber Services (ECS), an integrated cyber offering tailored to improve data and system security by providing real-time threat detection, network visualization, and advanced investigative capabilities across the fleet.
“We are extremely pleased to continue our long standing partnership with Valaris that spans more than a decade,” Steven Pickett, CEO and president of RigNet, said. “This is a testament to our strategy to provide high-performance and secure network connectivity with fully-managed end-to-end IP network solutions using VSAT technology, our GoM offshore network and state of the art global multiband LTE service.”
