Telenor Satellite Services
, a subsidiary of Telenor of Norway announced that the company has activated its 3000th Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) terminal.
BGAN offers users high-speed IP-based broadband communications plus simultaneous voice (telephony) calling via a portfolio of small, lightweight user terminals. The robust communications service from Telenor is especially useful for a variety of IP-based applications such as streaming video, videoconferencing and Web browsing. The service allows businesses and organizations to extend networks to their remote operations sites.
Telenor, the second largest Distribution Partner in BGAN activations, was able to meet this benchmark thanks to its extensive Telenor Global Distribution Network. The network includes more than 400 service providers and retail organizations strategically positioned in local buying markets all over the world.
In addition, in 2006, Telenor implemented a new pricing plan, eliminating BGAN activation fees.
