Greatly Enhances Maritime Data Connectivity
The Nordics just got closer for U.S. organizations, unlocking a ton of potential for the industry. Announced today: Telenor Maritime is expanding its U.S presence at the NJFX CLS campus by establishing a direct connection to Norway via the 7200km Havfrue subsea cable system. This unique cable system traverses the North Atlantic and connects the U.S. at NJFX to mainland Northern Europe. “We welcome Telenor Maritime to our growing NJFX ecosystem,” comments Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX. “The company will be one of the first telecom operators to take advantage of Bulk Infrastructure’s Nordic Gateway at NJFX. This gateway will directly connect U.S. content, cloud and service providers with the Nordics, unlocking the many capabilities related to sustainable digital services and emissions-free hydropower.”
Telenor Maritime boosts marine and shore connectivity by offering ships and rigs cyber-secure digital infrastructures and the capability to wirelessly transmit enormous amounts of information. The company is the only operator at sea with a fully managed service, offering all mobile access technologies such as 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi and VSAT for ships and offshore platforms.
“As the leading global communication operator at sea, Telenor Maritime is on the forefront of developing and defining secure standards for the maritime business,” comments Lars-Erik Lunøe, CEO at Telenor Maritime. “As part of the new landing point at NJFX’s carrier-neutral campus, Telenor will access the new Havfrue subsea cable and offer direct connections from the U.S east coast to the Bulk Infrastructure campus in Norway, N01, which hosts our new core site. We chose the NJFX SSAE 16/18 certified infrastructure due to its rich ecosystem of global connectivity providers and subsea cable systems, as well as for its close proximity to the Satellite Teleport in Holmdel, New Jersey. We are well on our way to unlocking the Nordics and enabling new capabilities for our clients globally.”
NJFX is home to four subsea cable systems and seven independent U.S. fiber-based backhaul providers. The company has created a new model of the CLS as a hub of unprecedented capacity and connectivity.
