Commdex Achieves Major Milestone on Syncrude – Canadian Oil Sands Project

Norcross, GA, May 19th, 2015 – Commdex, a leading provider of mission critical communications solutions, reached a major milestone as it completed staging of the P25 and Cisco MPLS Network for the Syncrude – Canadian Oil Sands project. This achievement, which indicates the delivery of an error-free network configuration, is the latest success for Commdex on a project that expands the company’s presence as a premier telecom solutions provider to the Oil & Gas market in Canada.

Syncrude Canada Ltd is one of the world’s largest producers of synthetic crude oil from oil sands and the largest single source producer in Canada. The company is a joint venture between seven partners, with Canadian Oil Sands Limited holding the largest percentage of ownership. Commdex is partnered with Motorola Solutions and Cache Valley Electric to upgrade communications at Syncrude’s facility, where reliable communications is imperative to ensure that personnel safety and operational performance is not comprised.

With staging successfully completed, the project now transitions into the deployment phase, during which Commdex will provide network engineering support, including network configuration, testing, and documentation, to deploy the Syncrude Cisco MPLS 12 site network. Commdex engineered the network with Layer 2 switches to deliver a highly efficient, scalable and secure network for Syncrude. This work is underway and is expected to be completed by November 2015.

Commdex President and Chief Executive Officer Prince Niyyar said, “While we have reached this critical milestone of network staging, there is still significant work ahead in this important effort to modernize Syncrude’s communications infrastructure. Our engineering and technical expertise will be key drivers for the successful delivery of a final integrated solution to enhance and secure operations, increase productivity, and reduce costs.”
