Texas firm plans LTE deployment for private monitoring network

Texas Energy Network (TEN) has big ambitions for using LTE technology in a private communications network to deliver high-speed data, video and VoIP to remote areas of West Texas and Eastern New Mexico where oil and gas companies have oil wells that need to be monitored. The company has enlisted the help of Alcatel-Lucent (NASDAQ:ALU) and plans to demonstrate LTE later this month using an Alca-Lu "LTE on wheels" truck to show how LTE can be used to connect an oil site sensor or link a monitoring camera on a pipeline and deliver live video images. Article
