From Development to Protection
OSI is dedicated to delivering high-quality subsea network connectivity on a global scale. Our project experience ranges from regional to international networks throughout the Americas, Asia Pacific, Africa and Europe. OSI also serves a variety of markets. Our clients range from telecom and Oil & Gas operators, to financing and banking, government, and academia.
Developing fiber optic networks. The demand for secure, diverse, low latency network connections continues to grow, driven by the increased need for emerging technologies and applications. OSI has provided network consulting to the majority of submarine cable builds since 1997. Over the past five years OSI has had a leading role in subsea cable network builds totaling over $1 billion in value. Our clients’ telecommunications projects have ranged in scope from regional to international networks in Asia Pacific, Africa, Latin America and Europe.
Connecting onshore and offshore assets. Fiber optic cable networks are the most effective, most secure and most reliable way to transmit information between offshore fields, and from offshore fields to onshore facilities. Oil companies use high-speed fiber networks to support risk management and improve field safety records, to increase field monitoring capabilities, to greatly enhance remote field operations and to take advantage of real-time information that expands field economies. While radio, satellite and VSAT have historically been the methods of telecommunication between offshore platforms and onshore locations, operators are now realizing that subsea cables provide a future-proof field solution that is both highly reliable and extremely secure.
Protecting the ocean environment. The planning and development of subsea ocean observing networks is driven by the need to collect and analyze data for oceanographic research, environmental baselines and long-term monitoring. This data plays an important role in ocean science and technology. OSI supports ocean observing and research efforts through partnerships with governments and NGOs across the world, by aiding the collection and analysis of industry research, and by supporting ocean resource stewardship.
Developing subsea power interconnections . OSI is committed to supporting the offshore renewable energy market as it develops and grows into a key source of energy for the Americas region. Our teams leverage the skills and technologies acquired during the company’s long history of service in the subsea Telecom, Oil & Gas, and Ocean Observing industries to benefit our customers in the submarine power cable and offshore renewable energy markets.
