Mobile satellite company Thuraya has announced that it is enhancing its high-speed data product ThurayaDSL to make it faster, more compact and to allow greater functionality.

The project follows the launch of ThurayaDSL in 2005.

The satellite operator plans to unveil the new product in the first quarter of 2008, the company said in a statement.

Preliminary design of the terminal was approved in May and more consultations are planned with the manufacturer Hughes Network Systems.

The ThurayaDSL terminal has connectivity with speeds of up to 144Kbps which allow it access to key internet services and applications, including e-mail, e-commerce, intranet, file transfer protocol (FTP) and virtual private network (VPN).

The plug-and-play terminal is widely used in the oil and gas, media and NGO sectors where ThurayaDSL’s “anytime, anywhere” access is considered particularly valuable.

Thuraya was founded in the UAE in 1997 by a consortium of leading national telecommunications operators and international investment houses. The firm offers satellite-based mobile telephone services to more than 110 countries worldwide.
