Using fiber optic cables large amounts of data can be transmitted from platforms in the North Sea to operation centers on the mainland. This technology enables people on the mainland to monitor what happens on the platform. With this collaboration technology offshore and mainland is able to work more closely together. IFE assists in developing this technology.

The result is that those working on the platform, together with experts and support from the mainland, can make quicker and better decisions based on better data. By working this way the companies on the Norwegian shelf may achieve a profit of billions of Norwegian kroner through increased production and reduced costs.
