Vizada to distribute Thuraya handheld GmPRS

  • Friday, 03 August 2007 | News

Vizada (formerly France Telecom Mobile Satellite Communications) is to begin offering Thuraya GmPRS (Geo mobile Packet Radio Service), a service which allows users to browse the internet, use e-mail, download and share files (FTP), and set up a VPN (virtual private network), all with a single Thuraya handset.

Customers pay only for data sent and received over the system, and will also have access to Vizada Online, a management tool enabling distributors or owners of large numbers of Thuraya handsets to activate, bar and suspend SIM cards as required.

Thuraya is also planning to offer Multimedia Messaging Services (MMS) on its MMS-enabled phone later this year, whereby customers would be able to send pictures or video clips to an e-mail address or other MMS-enabled device.
