New Broadband Communications Service


Telenor Satellite Services, a subsidiary of Telenor of Norway, announced that it is developing a new broadband communications line of services for the maritime industry enabling seamless global roaming for data and voice communications at sea. OceanRoam will provide vessels worldwide Internet and telephone connectivity around-the-clock using the ships' assigned IP addresses and telephone numbers regardless of location.

Telenor's OceanRoam claims to offer "always-on" Internet access and IP-based service at a fixed monthly price. The service will enable voice services and unlimited data transfer for ship's business and crew communications and will feature a variety of committed information rate (CIR) service levels up to 128 kbps. Additionally, OceanRoam will meet vessels' communications requirements for bandwidth intensive applications, such as video conferencing and large data transfers, by providing a series of optional bandwidth on demand information rates of up to 1024 kbps.

OceanRoam solution is based on dynamically managed Single Channel Per Carrier (dSCPC) and automatic application switching technologies, which enable increased satellite resource efficiencies and significantly reduced recurring operating expenses. Bandwidth on-demand is facilitated and all aspects of the satellite network can be configured, controlled, and monitored via Comtech's products. Commercial availability is planned for the 4th quarter of 2007.
