Keith Murray, Thuraya’s Senior Product Manager for Maritime, said, “Europort is an ideal platform to meet with senior maritime decision makers. As a leading international forum for maritime markets and technology, it is also the best setting for us to showcase Thuraya Atlas IP+, our new maritime broadband terminal - amongst customers and experts who understand the product’s relevance and have a specific need for it. Thuraya monitors the maritime market closely and listens to our customers needs. This gives us a keen perception of the market expectations, from developing products and services that integrate seamlessly with different vessel types to assist in delivering communication systems for crew welfare and cargo management that are best placed to reduce operating cost, improve efficiency and maintain crew morale. We look forward to witnessing some of the latest happenings in the maritime space at Europort, as well as presenting our portfolio and discussing options that cater to our customers’ needs.”

Thuraya Atlas IP+ is a maritime-specific broadband terminal specifically designed to deliver added value to end-users seeking enhanced connectivity and operational efficiency onboard ships. It supports simultaneous voice and broadband IP data connectivity at speeds of up to 444Kbps and features improved power efficiency, a smaller form factor, and greater versatility than rival products. The voice calls are via the Thuraya Talk VoIP service allowing for cost effective communication. Other functionality includes 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.
