Thuraya reaches new heights
Company provides high-speed data solutions to non-profit group in Himalayas
Thuraya has provided its high-speed data solutions to the Ev-K2-CNR Committee, an Italian non-profit organisation that promotes scientific and technological research in mountainous areas such as the Himalaya region, as part of its research equipment.
Thuraya IP has helped Ev-K2-CNR send data, videos and pictures as part of its environmental studies, which are often conducted in remote regions where terrestrial networks are unavailable.
According to Thuraya, it currently has border-to-border coverage in over 140 countries in Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia and Australia.
"It is actually fascinating how Thuraya's satellite network has allowed us to create a remote-office facility via Thuraya IP in the most isolated spots on the globe. We are able to send important research data reliably through the compact solution that has proven to be so easy to use and is now a fundamental part of our gear. Thuraya IP has endured the rough and icy conditions we face during our project. Additionally, it is also very affordable," said Giampietro Verza, technical manager of the Ev-K2-CNR.
The Thuraya IP is one of the world's smallest satellite broadband solutions to support 384 Kbps streaming. It also offers speeds up to 444 Kbps Standard IP. It is also one of the only satellite broadband solutions with asymmetric streaming capabilities, allowing consumers to select their upload and download speeds for substantial cost savings.
