As technology moves with the speed of industry, new technologies emerge to make our lives better and better at home. One of these is “Triple Play,” but what exactly is it? Triple play is the combination of voice, Internet, and television through one service. What does this mean for the oil and gas industry? It means seamless integration and continuity for a company’s entire site needs, whether they are offices in the middle of the ocean or offices in the big city – including vessels at sea!
