Telenor Maritime has a longstanding relationship with Color Line, and has now announced an expansion of the communications services on board the entire Color Line fleet, deploying connectivity platforms supporting the complete digital value chain that aim to enhance the customer experience.
“Telenor Maritime is a mobile company at sea, placing the mobile in the center of all we do. With our connectivity platform, we take full end-to-end responsibility for connecting the applications; the access layer with the onboard mobile and WiFi systems; and the backhaul from Ka/Ku satellite and land-based mobile broadband from our network of global operators,” said Frode Støldal, CEO of Telenor Maritime.
The THOR-7 Ka high-performance satellite provides seamless coverage throughout Europe, favorable in the northern regions where Color Line operates, enabling unprecedented performance for mobile services and applications.
“The introduced connectivity platform will be a major steppingstone for the ongoing digital transformation within Color Line. Our focus is always to improve the end user experience, and improve operational efficiency,” Frode Støldal continues.
“The agreement with Telenor Maritime means that we can offer full WiFi coverage on our vessels with increased capacity and bandwidth during Q1 2017. This enables further investments in digital solutions to provide guests with the best experience on board,” explains Marianne Gade Gørbitz, CIO of Color Line.
