Digital Communications Solution for Pipelines

Pipeline transmission is important for oil and gas production. With long transmission lines and complex geographical environments, oil and gas companies face the following risks and challenges:

  • Production data cannot be obtained in a timely manner due to insufficient network coverage with manual meter reading and inspection
  • Pipeline damage, oil and gas thefts occur frequently due to lack of real-time surveillance and prevention
  • Communication systems on the live network are not compatible with each other, causing low communication efficiency

The Huawei Digital Communications Solution for Pipelines provides sub-solutions, including reliable network, intelligent video surveillance and security, and multimedia communications, to enable efficient production and secure operations for oil and gas pipelines.


The solution offers reliability, convergence, and security and improves communications coverage, production communication, and security protection. Features include:

  • Optical transmission
  • Telephony
  • Video surveillance
  • Wireless trunking communication
  • Video conferencing
  • Shortwave radio
  • Data network

Optical ring network + satellite emergency communication backbone network

The basic network solution relies primarily on optical transmission. The control center, metering stations, pump stations, compressor stations, and valve rooms are connected via the optical transmission network, which is deployed in a ring-network configuration to ensure reliable communications. A Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) system can be used as a backup link among key stations, such as the control center, metering stations, pumping stations, and compressor stations. In the case of an optical transmission interruption, key services, including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and telephony are automatically switched to the VSAT link to ensure service continuity.

Intelligent linkage of security monitoring systems enables prevention

The intelligent security solution integrates video surveillance, Intrusion Detection System (IDS), access control, and PA/GA systems. Based on optical vibration, the IDS system works with the IVS system to generate alarms and send intrusion signals to the IVS system where on-site videos are displayed in the surveillance center. Monitoring personnel can perform quick positioning, dispatch, and commands based on the GIS map and trunking communication system to improve emergency response efficiency.

Voice, video, and data comply with third-party systems for efficient collaboration

The multimedia communication solution converges voice, video, and data communication approaches to enable telephony, video, trunking, and desktop-sharing services. Based on Huawei’s platform architecture, the communication system can seamlessly work together with third-party products and carrier networks to enable efficient communications across diverse systems. The convergent communication solution supports a variety of terminals and delivers a collaborative, interactive experience for office and conferencing anytime, anywhere. Terminal types include:

  • Analog, IP, and video phones
  • Software terminals such as eSpace and Lync
  • Computers
  • Wi-Fi phones and trunked phones


  • Reliable: The optical transmission link switchover is less than 50 ms and delivers 99.999% reliability to ensure continuity of key power services
  • Convergence: eSpace communication converges voice, data, video, and conferencing functions to enable efficient information sharing
  • Visual: Video surveillance and videoconferencing systems communicate with each other to enable visual command
  • Open: The IVS platform provides enterprise Software Development Kit (SDK) interfaces to interoperate with third-party surveillance systems
  • Precise: The optical vibration detection system delivers precision within 110 yds. (100m)
