Transocean Renews Satellite Communications Contract With CapRock
Oil drilling firm Transocean has renewed its satellite communication agreement with CapRock.
CapRock has been providing Transocean’s communications services for nearly a decade, and the drilling company decided to extend the agreement for an additional four years. CapRock will migrate Transocean’s network to the fully managed CapRock IPxpress network. With this network, Transocean will be able to use voice over IP, which takes advantage of the efficiencies of Internet Protocol to deliver voice and data communications more efficiently and more cost-effectively than traditional satellite telephony.
