Thuraya introduces new voice satellite terminal

Thuraya has unveiled its SF2500 maritime satellite voice terminal, developed jointly with partner Addvalue Communications.

SF2500 is the latest product under the recently created Thuraya MarineComms brand, and the company has confirmed the Indonesian Fisherman Association as an early adopter of the system.

“Our first customer for the SF2500, the Indonesian Fisherman Association, is exactly the kind of organisation we expect the product to appeal to, and we are very pleased to see them sign up even before the product’s official launch,” said Samer Halawi, Thuraya CEO.

“Fishing is one of the three most dangerous occupations in the world, but lack of affordability has placed reliable satellite communications outside the reach of many fishermen until now.”

“Smaller form factors and more affordable technology mean it’s easier to keep satellite equipment onboard even in very small vessels, making it safer for fishermen to do their jobs and stay in touch with shore.”

The system will be offered with tailored pricing packages, as well as a Shareplan package whereby end-users can share individual airtime allocations across their terminal base and mix and match different Thuraya solutions, both voice and data.
