UAE-based satellite company, Thuraya, has launched its fastest and lightest mobile satellite broadband terminal, Thuraya IP+.

The portable terminal is designed to give quick and reliable access to broadband data services over Thuraya's satellite network.

The unit weighs 1.4 kilogrammes and supports speeds of 444kbps on standard IP and 384kbps on streaming IP with a built-in antenna. The terminal can be configured to provide asymmetric streaming, enabling users to control their upload and download speeds based on usage requirements, to optimise bandwidth cost.

The new device gives access to applications including high-quality video broadcasting, as well as data transfer and VoIP applications, Web browsing, email, social media and communications.

T Sanford Jewett, Thuraya's VP of marketing, said: "Thuraya's expanding range of satellite broadband products [is] engineered to set a new standard for convenience and portability."

A highly portable and rugged device, Thuraya IP+ is ideal for various mission-critical operations such as broadcast media, defence, telemedicine and disaster response.

Thuraya's congestion-free satellite network helps to further ensure uninterrupted mobile broadband access. From supporting offshore operations to establishing critical field communication links, Thuraya IP+ provides the portable connectivity required by Thuraya's customers who live and work beyond the reach of traditional terrestrial networks.
