Telenor Expands Use of Intelsat Global Satellite Capacity

Tuesday, March 06, 2007
Intelsat announced that Telenor Satellite Services expanded a multi-year contract with Intelsat to include transmission services on three different spacecraft in C- and Ku-band. The capacity is being used for Telenor’s Sealink maritime high-speed data communications solution through its Eik Teleport in Norway.

Through this agreement, Telenor renewed its contract on the Intelsat 903 and Intelsat 704 satellites for C-band capacity connectivity in the Atlantic Ocean Region and Indian Ocean Region respectively and in addition began using Ku-band capacity on the Intelsat 907 satellite for North Sea and Atlantic Ocean distribution.

Sealink utilizes Intelsat’s flexible geostationary satellite constellation in conjunction with Telenor Satellite Services’ gateways located around the world to provide always-on maritime VSAT services to the shipping and oil and gas industries. With Intelsat’s C- and Ku-band transmissions, Sealink is able to offer a wide range of business and entertainment communications including crew and passenger telephony; radio contact; Internet access; video conferencing; large-volume data communications; and TV reception.
