Telenor Satellite Unveils Global Broadband Services

Telenor Satellite Services unveiled a portfolio of broadband services via satellite aimed at a variety of end users from international corporations and governments to small and medium enterprises and small office, home office customers. Telenor is now providing broadband services under two portfolios, one for on land and one for at sea.

Telenor delivers its broadband solutions using fixed installation and transportable very small aperture terminal (VSAT) equipment and Demand Assigned Multiple Access (DAMA) or Single Carrier Per Channel (SPCP) technologies with typical throughput in excess of 2 Mbps. Telenor broadband services use a variety of global and regional satellite systems including Intelsat, New Skies, Eutelsat, Spacecom and Telenor's Thor satellites, all carried over Telenor Satellite Services' own worldwide teleport network. When commercially available, Telenor will add Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) service via the Inmarsat I-4 satellite system to its portfolio of broadband solutions, enabling mobile broadband connectivity for users on land.
