WFN Strategies recently announced that its Director
of Projects, Guy Arnos, will be hosting a design workshop for submarine cable systems at the upcoming ENTELEC Conference in Houston, Texas on Thursday, 10 April at
Entitled “Design Challenges for Undersea Systems Serving Offshore Production Platforms,” the workshop considers serious design issues involved in
engineering a submarine cable system to serve offshore production platforms. The differences between design parameters for systems serving the telecommunications
industry and systems serving the oil and gas industry will be considered, and a set of design criteria specific to the offshore oil and gas industry will be
presented. The trade-offs of various system architectures as applied to different business model will also be discussed.
ENTELEC (www.entelec.org) is a user association focusing on communications and control technologies used by
petroleum, natural gas, pipeline and electric utility companies. ENTELEC's primary goal is to provide education for its members. To achieve this goal ENTELEC
provides an educational platform for these industries, including technical presentations, equipment, exhibits and networking opportunities during the annual ENTELEC
Conference & Expo.
Since 2001, WFN Strategies (www.wfnstrategies.com) has provided business and engineering solutions for remote and unique
communications requirements. The company supports RFP efforts for telecoms services and their physical deployment, and develops the standards for system design,
construction, and maintenance. WFN Strategies actively accomplishes projects involving submarine and terrestrial optical cable, microwave/WiMAX, mobile, and
