Telenor Upgrades Global Inmarsat C Network
Wednesday, August 13, 2003
Telenor Satellite Services has upgraded its Inmarsat C ground network
and has begun transitioning all of its Inmarsat C services to the
company's earth station at Eik in Norway.
As a result of re-engineering its network, Telenor has standardized
the capabilities of its system, making Inmarsat C a seamless,
state-of-the-art suite of services that is easy to use. Service
applications include e-mail access via the Internet, fax and telex
messaging, data transfers, and asset polling. Messages can be
transmitted from mobile terminal units and by fixed communications
devices such as personal computers, fax, and telex machines.
In addition to basic messaging, Telenor's Inmarsat C is a primary
communications tool for fleet management, Homeland Security and
maritime safety, and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA).
