Telenor Satellite Broadcasting Inks Nera Deal
Telenor Satellite Broadcasting inked a deal with Nera for the delivery of a broadband satellite gateway – the Nera SatLink Hub. Telenor will use the new DVB-RCS SatLink System to enable service providers to offer broadband IP services in the Nordic region.
The DVB-RCS SatLink system will enable Telenor to link up with broadband service operators and to offer broadband Internet access as well as such other bandwidth-intensive applications as media streaming, video broadcasting, voice-over-IP (VoIP) and IP multicast services.
Bjorn Platou, senior vice president/customer management at Nera, commented, “The contract with Telenor is yet another step towards making DVB-RCS the de facto standard for broadband over satellite.”
