Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 13 November 2017: Thuraya Telecommunications Company and long-term service partner, IEC Telecom, will be partnering up for the latest edition of the ADIPEC expo. Both companies will be at booth 410, Hall 4 at the event to showcase Thuraya’s space-based equipment for the energy sector as well as launch the latest maritime-specific broadband terminal, Thuraya Atlas IP+, for off-shore connectivity needs. An internationally renowned annual oil and gas gathering in Abu Dhabi, ADIPEC will be held from November 13th – 16th. Thuraya and IEC are one among 2,000 exhibitors at the event, which is expected to host over 100,000 industry delegates this year.
Keith Murray, Thuraya’s Senior Product Manager for Maritime, said, “We are pleased to be accompanied by our trusted partner, IEC Telecom, at ADIPEC. Their presence will optimize our launch reception for Thuraya Atlas IP+ and help us reach more relevant and potential customers for all our energy sector offerings. As established satcom providers to the oil and gas industry, we look forward to meeting with top officials at the event and discussing how our latest offerings cater to niche market needs and evolving demands.”
Thuraya Atlas IP+ is a maritime-specific broadband terminal manufactured to provide maritime users with added value, as compared to rival products in the market, and delivers enhanced versatility, connectivity and operational efficiency on board ships. Atlas IP+ supports simultaneous voice and broadband IP data connectivity at speeds of up to 444Kbps, offers improved power efficiency, and has a smaller form factor. Additional onboard functionalities include port forwarding, which automatically transfers data from shipboard equipment and devices in support of M2M reporting routines; an English/Chinese web interface; a built-in firewall; and the ability to use the terminal for vessel tracking increasing the effectiveness of fleet management.
Nabil Ben Soussia, Managing Director at IEC Telecom said, “ADIPEC is the ideal place for telecommunication solution providers to meet and exchange knowledge with peers and customers and we are glad to strengthen our participation here alongside Thuraya. The Thuraya Atlas IP+ is a remarkable new maritime-based product that adds new benefits to the oil and gas market’s satellite communication segment. We are keen to highlight its features to all those we engage with during this expo.”
Thuraya will also be displaying other voice and data products and services at ADIPEC that are ideal for vessel connectivity and remote worker communications on offshore-rigs, or in areas that are beyond the coverage of terrestrial networks (for example, around distant pipelines). These products include Thuraya MCD Voyager, Thuraya Atlas IP, and a range of the satellite XT handsets.
