The World Teleport Association (WTA) recently announced that we have achieved Provisional Certification of our Nittedal Teleport, under their Teleport Certification Program .

The WTA Certification program was introduced at IBC 2015 , and aims to create “an objective, transparent, and internationally accepted method for teleport operators to document the quality of their operations”.

Since its introduction, the scheme has become increasingly popular. There are currently 12 teleports in the evaluation process, and certifications have already been achieved by a number of teleport operators.

“Provisional Certification, based on self-reported data, gives teleport operators a chance to understand the certification standards and priorities as they progress to an independent audit that produces a Full Certification,” said WTA Executive Director, Robert Bell. “We have been honoured by the commitment of so many leading teleport operators to this program and look forward to its continued growth.”

In order to achieve Provisional Certification, we were required to complete an extensive
questionnaire regarding our teleport operations. The WTA examined the data and set it against their certification standards, as established by their Certification Committee. Having reviewed the information provided, we were happy to hear that we had gained Provisional Certification.

“Telenor Satellite is very pleased to receive this Provisional Certification from the WTA,” said Jonathan Kennedy, Director of Teleport Operations for Telenor Satellite. “This is a great acknowledgement that we are capable at providing high quality resilient services to our existing and potential customers.”

We now look forward to gaining Full Certification, which will require an auditor to visit our Nittedal Teleport and provide an independent verification of our initial data.

About the World Teleport Association Since 1985, the World Teleport Association ( has focused on improving the business of satellite communications from the ground up. At the core of its membership are the world’s most innovative operators of teleports, from independents to multinationals, niche service providers to global carriers.

(Oslo, Norway, October 19, 2016) Telenor Satellite is pleased to announce the type approval for C-COM iNetVu® Ka-98G Driveaway and the iNetVu® FLY-98G antenna systems for THOR 7.

Telenor Satellite worked with C-COM a leading global provider of mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems to achieve type approval  for the the iNetVu® Ka-98G Drive-Away and the iNetVu® FLY-98G delivering in excess of 10Mbps upload and download rates over THOR 7.

Drew Klein, Director of International Business Development for C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. comments, “Customers can now easily roam between beams with C-COM’s 3-axis motorisation and our auto-polarisation switching function. This will give Telenor customers the option of a fully approved, land based system capable of finding the satellite in just a few minutes with the press of a button.”

“Telenor Satellite launched Occasional Use (OU) Ka-band services on the satellite at the end of September, and we worked closely with C-COM to achieve type approval for their Ka-band auto-deploy antennas, which during testing achieved some great results.” commented Lisa Barlow, OU Sales Director at Telenor Satellite.

Testing of the antenna was assisted by a leading European C-COM partner, Primetech UK. “Primetech are delighted to work with both C-COM and Telenor Satellite in achieving type approval of the iNetVu® 98G series,” concludes  Henry Walker, Managing Director of Primetech. “The addition of the Telenor Ka-band service using a world renowned product is a huge benefit, particularly where reliability in the provision of resilience is crucial.”
