Telenor Satellite Services Inks Maritime Deal With Fugro Survey
Telenor Satellite Services has signed a contract with Fugro Survey Ltd. of Aberdeen, UK, for Sealink maritime high-speed data communications aboard three of Fugro’s survey and research vessels. Under the terms of the agreement, Telenor will provide Ku-band service for two of Fugro’s site survey vessels, both operating in the North Sea. Telenor will also install a new combined “quick change” C- and Ku-Band system aboard a third vessel, operating globally. Ku-band provides Fugro the capability to use high-speed communications applications at sea including local and wide area network connectivity, video conferencing, and Internet access, while using smaller shipboard equipment.
