Radio Network Contract - 16/08/2007
Thrane & Thrane has been awarded a DKK20 million (US$3.6 million) contract by Inmarsat to supply and install two Radio Network Controller stations in Hawaii (USA). This is one of the first contracts awarded to start implementing the necessary BGAN infrastructure to support the third Inmarsat-4 satellite.
The contract delivery is planned to take place over the next two fiscal years. Installation of equipment is planned to be completed during this fiscal year whereas integration and testing is scheduled for the following fiscal year. Thrane & Thrane has worked with Inmarsat since 2001 to design, manufacture and install BGAN Radio Network infrastructure with a total value for Thrane & Thrane over this period of more than DKK500 million (US$90.2 million).
This new contract is a major leap forward in providing global BGAN coverage especially for the Pacific Ocean. Global coverage including ocean regions opens the BGAN services to large merchant vessels and aircraft, whose communication needs will be met with the introduction of FleetBroadband and SwiftBroadband services.
