Competitive Price Plans
Our analysis of the maritime industry identified a clear need for pricing plans that reflect best possible value as well as offering greater choice to end users. In response, Thuraya has created a range of flexible and competitive price plans developed specifically for the maritime environment.
Plan options include:
• Unlimited high volume usage
• Occasional user low volume usage
• VSAT backup usage
Fast and reliable connectivity
As the most reliable segment of the satellite spectrum, L-band has provided the backbone of maritime connectivity for many years. Thuraya MBB provides standard background IP throughput at speeds of up to 444 kbps, meaning that maritime users can take advantage of fast
connectivity for business-critical and crew welfare applications. Typical
functions possible over MBB include:
• Optimized email and web browsing
• VPN for database synchronization for onboard M&P/environmental reporting
• VOIP, video conferencing and instant messaging (No services blocked)
• M2M services including vessel tracking and condition-based monitoring
Congestion-free network for reliable data transfers
The Thuraya network features the most powerful L-band satellites
currently available to maritime users and is known for the strength and
consistency of its signal. As a result, satellite antennas are smaller and
easier to install, while offering very high quality of service.
Mariners are demanding users, who need their communications to work
wherever they are and whatever the weather. The Thuraya network’s
dynamic resource allocation process minimizes traffic congestion in areas of high communications volume, such as major ports or busy shipping lanes.
Durable and proven hardware
Communicating in the maritime environment demands hardware that can be relied upon to perform in harsh conditions. The Thuraya IP broadband terminal has proven itself in demanding maritime applications over many years. This combination of hardware from well-known suppliers Hughes and Spacecomm, provides a solution that is tried and tested in a maritime environment.
