KHALDA PETROLEUM COMPANY IS A LARGE DRILLING AND PRODUCTION OPERATION in the Maadi district of Cairo, Egypt. Khalda’s holdings span 500 kilometers of the West Desert, with more than 30 gas wells on Tarek, their largest field. Reliable communications are essential for monitoring and SCADA applications at well sites, and though Khalda’s existing fiber and licensed microwave system had served them well for years, bandwidth was becoming limited as the equipment became obsolete.
"Cambium's PMP broadband system is low cost, more reliable, and higher bandwidth compared to other systems used for SCADA applications, like VHF modems and fiber optic cable.” – Mosad El Sayed Badr, Telecom Gen. Mgr., Khalda Petroleum Company
