Telenor Satellite Services Previews Secure Networking Technology

Telenor Satellite Services announced the first in a series of secure networking value added services it plans to offer. Terralink Secure, which Telenor plans to launch in Q2, is designed to stop unwanted traffic and content coming from the Internet to a user's satellite terminal before the content enters the satellite portion of the end-to-end connection. Terralink Secure differs from client-installed firewalls and security programs running on the user's PC, which can stop unwanted traffic after it has passed over the satellite portion of the connection. As a network based service, Terralink Secure results in a more efficient use of the satellite link both in terms of throughput and cost.
