IXO Interface

The IXO Interface from Sperry Drilling services provides two-way communication between downhole LWD sensors and the surface at speeds up to 10,000X faster than current mud pulse telemetry rates. The IXO Interface is the link that connects the Sperry LWD system to the NOV IntelliServ™ Wired Drill Pipe™(WDP) Telemetry Network.

The IntelliServ Network enables concurrent high-speed data transmission between downhole tools and surface equipment at speeds up to 57,000 bps. The IXO Interface translates information so it can be streamed between the surface and downhole via the IntelliServ Network. All of the LWD sensor readings and diagnostic data that to date have been stored in the tool's memory (due to limitations in current mud pulse telemetry data rates) are now available in real time, at even higher resolution.


  • Eliminate rig time associated with off-bottom data transmission (survey transmission, RSS downlinks, checkshots) and ROP limiters
  • Acquire high-resolution LWD data for enhanced formation evaluation and well placement, even at extremely high rates of penetration
  • Improve geosteering capability by receiving all the data from all sensors in real time
  • Achieve a new level of understanding of drilling dynamics, wellbore integrity and hydraulics for improved drilling performance and more accurate modeling
  • Explore formation changes over time with multiple-pass repeat logging
  • Realize faster, more accurate depth correlation
