As a leading mobile satellite services operator, Thuraya is committed to delivering reliable, high-performance products and services tailored to address the communication needs of diverse markets. To reinforce this commitment, Thuraya has launched a new division focused on spearheading new strategic innovations for the development and implementation of cutting-edge solutions in the satellite industry.

At Thuraya, we believe there is a great potential for driving innovation excellence across the satellite segment. We intend to fulfill our ambition of being at the forefront of innovation, by putting more focus on expanding the scope of our mobile satellite product portfolio and maintaining a high standard of network infrastructure.

The launch of our new innovation division follows the recent commercial release of two new groundbreaking products from Thuraya. Firstly, Thuraya IP+, the fastest portable satellite broadband terminal in its size class, demonstrates how we are able to meet customer demands by setting a new standard for convenience and portability through our data products, without compromising on capability and performance.

Another exciting development is the introduction of the Thuraya SatSleeve, the world’s first iPhone satellite adaptor that serves to extend the reach of satellite telephony for enterprises, government organizations, and everyday consumers. Thuraya SatSleeve is the kind of game-changing technology breakthroughs that Thuraya consistently thrives on, highlighting our ongoing efforts to sharpen our innovative capabilities.

Through Thuraya Link, we aim to showcase what’s on the horizon for mobile satellite services by focusing on interesting developments in a specific market segment in each issue.

In this inaugural edition, we put the spotlight on the maritime industry, a market that holds considerable growth potential for satellite communications. Our new Maritime Broadband (MBB) service offering is a great example of Thuraya's ability to design a solution to meet the maritime industry's need for reliable equipment and cost-competitive airtime, guided by our commitment to provide technically superior solutions that are competitively priced. In this issue, you can also learn more about how the Thuraya MBB solution enabled a leading maritime operator in South East Asia to address a critical need for offshore communications.

We look forward to updating you on more of our latest developments in our mobile satellite products and services — as we continue to better position ourselves to help drive your business growth.
