HARRISBURG, Pa. — TransCore and Telenor Satellite Services, have signed a five-year agreement for Telenor to serve as a distributor of TransCore’s GlobalWave asset tracking products throughout Europe.

This multi-year agreement with Telenor further expands TransCore satellite offerings within the international market. The service uses Inmarsat satellite capacity provided by Telenor Satellite Services to TransCore.

“Companies require reliable and remote communications in numerous vertical markets such as marine, rail, container, intermodal, and heavy equipment,” said Anders Kallerud,
executive vice-president of Telenor. “Offering complementary technologies, Telenor and TransCore have entered into a distribution agreement that enhances both companies’ services to monitor high dollar assets in a myriad of environments.”

Telenor, a subsidiary of Telenor ASA of Norway, provides satellite-based communications worldwide, with more than 400 service providers globally. The combination of this established network and GlobalWave product offerings makes solutions readily available to the European community.

“Telenor is universally respected and known for top-quality service,” said John Worthington, TransCore’s president. “We believe this agreement will translate into increased market position for our GlobalWave product line and provide Telenor access to an additional satellite communications service.”

Launched in 1999, the satellite-based GlobalWave communications system allows users to monitor, manage, track and communicate with remote and mobile assets from a Web site interface. With four ground control stations providing service to five continents, the GlobalWave network supports more than 75,000 users worldwide.
