19 October 2016 (Oslo, Norway) 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.”
