Thuraya Telecommunications, a leading Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) operator has further extended its maritime product portfolio with the launch of Atlas IP, a feature-rich broadband satellite terminal.
Thuraya Atlas IP is the second maritime-specific product launched by Thuraya in 2014 and is designed to complement the Thuraya Orion IP broadband terminal by offering a fully-featured voice and data product with additional functionality built in. Designed and manufactured for Thuraya by Addvalue of Singapore, Thuraya Atlas IP delivers superior performance compared to more highly-priced competitor terminals, but with a higher specification and at a lower cost. Capable of standard IP data transfer at rates up to 444kbps and asymmetric streaming capability of 16kbps-384kbps, Thuraya Atlas IP is available with Thuraya’s range of attractive and flexible pricing plans, designed to provide users with exceptional value and choice.
Randy Roberts, Vice President of Innovation at Thuraya said, “The Thuraya Atlas IP terminal cements our position as a credible choice for maritime users who value innovation alongside value and flexibility. As our second maritime terminal launch of 2014, Atlas IP represents an option for users who want an added value terminal that can act as a shipboard hub. Together with some of the most competitively-priced airtime packages available, it represents a serious challenge to the established order in maritime.”
In addition to the voice and data capabilities of Atlas IP, key software components include a built in firewall, Wi-Fi and fleet tracking feature based on distance or time with accurate geo fencing. The terminal is also designed to support operational efficiency on-board ship through Port Forwarding.
Rashid Baba, Director of Products at Thuraya, said, “In developing Thuraya Atlas IP, we listened very carefully to our Service Partners and the needs of our clients. Thuraya Atlas IP builds on the success of our Orion IP terminal in bringing a high level of connectivity and functionality to shipping at prices that reflect the desire of ship-owners to connect for crew and business applications but control costs of ownership and operation.”
The Atlas IP is scheduled to be released from September 2014 and will be available from all Thuraya Service Partners.
