Terje Solvoll, senior researcher, has been with the centre since 2006. He started his career as a researcher in Telenor R&D early in 2001 as a Cand. Scient within computer science. In 2003, Solvoll left Telenor and started to work with satellite communications and ship-shore IT services to the ships, and electronic reporting systems to fishing vessels through satellite communication.

During this time, he has been supervising more than 15 students on master level and also been involved in several other projects, which involves professional networks for dentists, stroke diagnosing and treatment in rural areas using High Definition video conferencing systems through dedicated networks guaranteeing quality, decision-making systems, medical sensors, and more.
