The Sealink system offers one of the industry's most advanced shipboard satellite communications solutions available today, complete with the highest reliability for maritime Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) communications. "With two decades of experience in providing broadband services to the maritime industry, Telenor has the knowledge and technology to bring the most advanced communications applications to Neste Shipping," said Pål Jensen, vice president of Telenor Satellite Services. "The Sealink systems now being installed aboard these tankers give Neste Shipping the ability to extend its corporate communications network to each of these 11 vessels."
