Color Line expands communications agreement

Telenor Maritime has expanded its existing communications systems agreement with Color Line to supply Wi-Fi and mobile phone services across the cruise and ferry company’s entire fleet.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Telenor Maritime is a mobile company at sea, placing the mobile in the centre of all we do,” said Frode Støldal, CEO of Telenor Maritime.

“With our connectivity platform, we take full end-to-end responsibility for connecting the applications; the access layer with the onboard mobile and Wi-Fi systems; and the backhaul from Ka/Ku satellite and land-based mobile broadband from our network of global operators.”

The set-up will take advantage of Telenor Satellite’s THOR-7 Ka-band high throughput satellite coverage throughout Europe, which will be particularly advantageous in the northern European regions where Color Line operates. 

“The agreement with Telenor Maritime means that we can offer full Wi-Fi coverage on our vessels with increased capacity and bandwidth during Q1 2017,” said Marianne Gade Gørbitz, CIO of Color Line.

“This enables further investments in digital solutions to provide guests with the best experience on board.”{/mprestriction}
