In the oil and gas arena, we read from San Antonio Business Journal’s Tony Quesada the news on “WellAware teams with Internet of Things Technology company (On-Ramp) on oilfield data monitoring network”. On-Ramp’s RPMA technology is designed to provide low-power, wide-area connectivity and secure, two-way communications in a challenging environment – WellAware’s apps are meant to collect, manage and analyze.
