Thuraya Certifies RedPort Optimizer

DUBAI, UAE, October 28, 2013 – Thuraya Telecommunications Company, a leading
Mobile Satellite Services operator and RedPort Global, a leader in data and
throughput optimization services, today announced the successful certification of
the RedPort Optimizer satellite Wi-Fi router and the RedPort XGate satellite email
and data service software. Thuraya’s users can now use the RedPort Optimizer for
ship-to-shore and remote land-based data email and other data services via
computers, laptops and smartphones, including those from Google Android and
Apple iOS.

The RedPort Optimizer is currently used with the Seagull 5000i to optimize email
communications onboard commercial vessels operating across Thuraya’s coverage
area. It enables a vessel operator to stay in contact with its crew 24×7 and to
optimize ship operations while controlling costs. Its powerful firewall ensures there
are no unintended data transmissions to and from the vessel that could result in
unexpected airtime bills.

“Ship managers and their crew need to stay in touch with their team regardless of
where they are. Maritime crews especially need a solution that is easy to install and
allows them to have services that are optimized for satellite connectivity,” said
Randy Roberts, Vice President of Innovation at Thuraya. “RedPort Solutions will be
made available through our extensive network of service partners starting today.”
The RedPort Optimizer is certified for use on the Thuraya network with the Seagull
5000i and Thuraya Maritime Broadband. In addition, it is certified for the Thuraya
XT, IP and IP+. The RedPort Optimizer works exclusively with the RedPort XGate
software to provide email, web browsing, social media, blogging, weather data, GPS
tracking and GPS NMEA Repeating.

Dr. Luis Soltero, CTO of RedPort Global said, “Our partnership with Thuraya allows
us to provide maritime managers with easy access to a high-quality solution with
unparalleled satellite data services. While we have the expertise in software
development, Thuraya has the capacity to accelerate these solutions to market in a
very timely manner.”
