Video Surveillance

With superior IP streaming speeds of up to 384Kbps, Thuraya empowers surveillance missions to help save lives with real-timeHD video monitoring across vast distances. Thuraya network and broadband terminals sync seamlessly with live-imagery applications and other data-monitoring peripherals. 

Surveillance footage is easily compressed in real-time and shared over Thuraya’s secure satellite network with HQs and command centers. The video applications typically feature user-definable frame rates and sizes, and enable many global viewers and decision makers to remotely control the cameras, adjust field of view, and relay video data from multiple access points.

Video surveillance via Thuraya’s satellite network is integral for Military, Government, Relief, Marine and/or Enterprise sector missions in: Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), Search and Rescue (SAR), coast guard monitoring, disaster management, land and border patrolling, forest fire prevention, environment protection, pipeline monitoring (even underwater), and more.

Thuraya stays by you, throughout your watch.

Video Streaming

Thuraya’s satellite network ensures smooth and steady internet access outside the coverage area of terrestrial GSM operators and supports duplex, two-way connectivity. With best-in-market streaming IP speeds of up to 384Kbps and an easy onboarding interface that supports third-party HD video compression applications, Thuraya ensures mission success for critical operations in hard-to-reach areas that depend on real-time virtual communication.

HD video streaming via satellite is vital for a variety of sectors, including Relief, Government, Media, Marine, Energy and Enterprise. For example, HD streaming solutions over Thuraya network support several airborne missions in telemedicine, ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) and SAR (search-and-rescue), and even syncs with UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicle)equipped with remotely accessed cameras.

Whether it be aid workers in crisis zones, journalists covering breaking news on-the-move, VIPs on business travel, extreme adventurers who want to share their journey, or personnel deployed to repair distant pipelines and cables, HD video streaming with Thuraya promises effective and secure face-to-face communication anywhere in the world.

Thuraya brings you authentic connections in real-time, wherever your work takes you.

Voice Over IP

When on-the-move or stationed at distant locations, the ability to stay in constant touch - easily and inexpensively - is essential to operation successes. Backed by Thuraya’s advanced and extensive satellite coverage, Voice Over IP (VOIP) solutions guarantee high-quality calls to teams, family and friends anywhere in the world without connectivity issues and network congestion.

A VOIP solution offers additional benefits over standard phone calls: it requires limited hardware as it is internet-based, and uses much less bandwidth, which promotes call-cost reductions. Features such as caller ID and call waiting - usually paid services on standard phone lines - typically come free of cost with VOIP and upgrades for service extensions often require nothing more than extra bandwidth. Thuraya gives users the added flexibility of transmitting data and video while on a VOIP call or conference.

VOIP solutions with Thuraya are ideal for office-on-the-move, offshore and marine operations, work at remote sites, and government, military and relief missions that require advanced voice connectivity over secure networks.

Enjoy efficiency with the clarity and flexibility of VOIP calls over Thuraya’s satellite network. 


It is difficult to get sophisticated medical care in remote areas. Primary healthcare centers in far flung communities are typically equipped to handle basic medical needs. Quite often, a patient may require more specialized urgent care than what is available on-site, making access to telemedicine a must. Thuraya offers anyone – anywhere – immediate access to face-to-face communication with medical practitioners at the best hospitals and clinics worldwide.

We facilitate secure patient data capture, vital signs monitoring, consultation and treatment under the direct virtual guidance of specialists.

Relief organizations, NGOs and government agencies can enhance their health missions with telemedicine solutions over Thuraya’s satellite network, enabling first responders in target zones to save more lives with fast and efficient real-time patient-to-doctor communication.

While fully geared to meet emergency telemedicine requirements, the solutions can also be used by remote personnel for regular check-ups with specialists in order to compensate for in-person meetings.

Your life matters to Thuraya, wherever you may be.
