Stena Line deal for Telenor Maritime

Telenor Maritime reports that it has expanded its long-term partnership with Stena Line, with the introduction of a new mobile ecosystem onboard its passenger ships combining 3G/4G GSM connectivity, Wi-Fi, Ka-band VSAT and mobile broadband backhaul, in addition to the existing systems onboard.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“We have had a long and fruitful relation working with Telenor Maritime, previously Maritime Communications Partner. In fact, we were their very first customer in 2004, and we truly recognise them as the leading mobile operator at sea with an ever-expanding quality portfolio of services relevant for the ferry industry,” said Raimo Warkki, commercials, ship communication & systems at Stena Line.

“We are continually looking to develop the onboard customer experience, and we intend to provide our guest with improved services on our fleet of passenger vessels, giving them a choice to always stay connected if they prefer.”

“Our free low-performance Wi-Fi is complemented with a Premium, high-quality Wi-Fi alternative for our guests, opening up for more advanced services highly sought after by our passengers.”

The new deal covers 20 ships across Stena’s 21 ferry routes in Northern Europe, operating in Scandinavia, the Baltics, the North Sea and the Irish Sea.

“We are confident that our communications services will substantially enhance the customer journey on the twenty ships we are upgrading. Additionally, we are ready for the introduction of 5G with IoT services which will truly increase the ship operations’ efficiency. This is an important step for Telenor Maritime’s service-expansion in Europe,” said Frode Støldal, CEO of Telenor Maritime.{/mprestriction}
