Singapore - Thuraya Telecommunications Company, unveiled yesterday at CommunicAsia 2012 in Singapore its SF2500 maritime satellite voice terminal, developed jointly with partner Addvalue Communications Pte Ltd.
Thuraya is using its existing success in providing satellite communications to more than 140 countries around the globe to diversify into selected vertical sectors. Having sold over 600,000 handsets worldwide, the move is another significant step for Thuraya as it continues to expand its marine product line SF2500 is the latest offering available to end-users under the recently created Thuraya MarineComms brand, which was launched to provide dedicated support for the marine market and enables Thuraya's community of distributors and channel partners to provide training and support for marine end-users. The Indonesian Fisherman Association is already an early adopter of the SF2500 terminal, and Thuraya expects the product's reliability and value to rapidly attract other global marine end-users.
Thuraya offers tailored pricing packages that allow customers to subscribe to the plans most suited to their requirements and budgets. Thuraya also offers a Shareplan package, whereby end-users can share individual airtime allocations across their terminal base and mix and match different Thuraya solutions, both voice and data, to generate even greater savings.
Major General (Ret) Yussuf Solichien M, Chairman of the Indonesian Fisherman Association, concluded: "We wanted Indonesian fishermen to feel protected and safe when they're out at sea carrying out their jobs by putting the best satellite communications at their disposal. The versatility of the SF2500 , its small but powerful antenna, its reliability in different conditions and the built-in emergency response alert system were key factors in our choice." – Emirates News Agency, WAM
