Thuraya Partners with SRT Wireless to Redefine the Future of Data Transmission
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Aug. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — One of the world’s fastest-growing mobile satellite telecommunications companies is partnering with Florida-based SRT Wireless to deliver the next generation of Internet Protocol (IP) modems and an open platform for third-party developers.
Thuraya’s existing broadband terminal enables fast, convenient, reliable data connectivity from any location — even the most remote — in more than 140 countries in Asia, Australia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe.
The new IP module, developed and manufactured by SRT Wireless, will enhance the capabilities of Thuraya’s products, which are surging in popularity in both the Land and Maritime sectors. Specifically, the SRT Wireless IP module will enable high-speed streaming at up to 384 kbps, the fastest in the industry, and provide extensive additional functionality including Voice, Geo-Mobile Packet Radio Service (GmPRS), SMS, Fax, GPS, and an OEM-programmable host controller with Linux software development kit (SDK), which will significantly reduce development time and costs to bring new products and applications to market.
The module is especially well suited to meet the needs of market verticals including aerospace, military, marine, oil and gas, mining, SCADA industrial control systems, and any systems or applications in which a compact design is preferred and can be more easily integrated into the customer’s solution.
Rashid Baba, Thuraya’s Director of Product Management said, “Thuraya is delighted to be working with SRT Wireless to shape the future of data products. We believe this market sector will continue to grow exponentially, and we need to continually innovate to stay ahead. By providing a cutting-edge, open platform for developers, we’re encouraging innovation and creating real partnerships which will be key to our partners’ and Thuraya’s future.”
John Mann, SRT Wireless’ CEO explained, “Our partnership with Thuraya will revolutionize the way data is provided and consumed over the next few years. Thuraya’s foresight and our Thuraya IP Module design are guaranteed to excite developers who are aware of the importance of such a product in the marketplace.”
