May 2, 2019 – Telenor Satellite aims to satisfy rising demand from its customers for higher throughput maritime services on its THOR 7 Ka-band High Throughput Satellite (HTS) with a new collaboration with Newtec on their Newtec Dialog® platform. Telenor Satellite will use the platform for high end users such as Ferry, Cruise and OSVs where they will be able to fully exploit the potential of THOR 7 and deliver a service that far exceeds what is possible to deliver today using existing hub based technology. Newtec Dialog® also opens up the possibility to use THOR 7 in new verticals not presently using hub based technology for service delivery. Launched in 2015, THOR 7 targets the North Sea, North Atlantic/Norwegian Sea, Baltic Sea, Black Sea, Caspian Sea, Red Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Mediterranean Sea. Its HTS payload uses high power spot beams making it ideally suited for the mobility VSAT market. Telenor Satellite’s new Anker suite of services was also recently developed to meet growing demand for unique VSAT profiles capable of meeting any requirement.
