“We are moving fast forward into the Networked Society, and we are expecting the same experience whether we are at home or at sea when using our mobile devices. Speed and connectivity are crucial for passengers, and even more so in situations where a mobile device is used for business. Such as in the transportation industry, where communications during ferry crossings frequently are used for updates and excahnge of data,” said Frode Støldal, CEO of Telenor Maritime.

“Today we see more people, more business, more usage and more things connected and transmitted. As a ship-owner, you have to be aligned and prepared, and we can help you. We continue to support customers, investing in technology, delivering end to end connectivity to ship creating the networked society onboard,” Frode Støldal continues.

“DFDS has enjoyed a great partnership with Telenor Maritime on providing GSM solutions for our passengers for more than ten years. The scene is rapidly changing, and an efficient Wi-Fi solution is mandatory to access social media and other digital experiences, this is easier said than done in an environment where bandwidth has to be supplied and mixed from different sources. Telenor Maritime has specialised in providing solution to the ferry industry, and we look forward to extending our cooperation,” said Gert Møller, VP & CIO at DFDS.
