A Texas startup business wanted to connect oil drilling locations in remote locations. One goal was to collect data about production, machine performance, equipment health, and other parameters. Then they wanted to control certain operations remotely; speed up or slow down pumps, control valves, etc.; and, ultimately, integrate the whole thing with user-friendly front-end software.
