Under an exciting new tie-up between IEC Telecom and Thuraya Telecommunications Company, IEC Telecom is all set to open up the Turkish maritime and offshore markets to even better value-added voice and data services through Thuraya VSAT+.
“By appointing a highly experienced partner with wide geographical reach as our Master Distributor for VSAT+, we are simplifying the proposition for resellers and a win-win partnership to create new opportunities in the maritime industry,” says Nadeem Khan, Director Maritime M2M & IoT, Thuraya.
As Master Distributor for Thuraya VSAT+ across all main maritime market segments and the only Distribution Partner in Turkey that works in cooperation with Thuraya, Inmarsat, and Iridium, IEC Telecom offers high quality global coverage with no yearly lock-in commitment and no investment in infrastructure.
The Thuraya VSAT+ operates with optimum flexibility by combining Ku-band for high-speed data and L-band for back up. Moreover, IEC Telecom provides its own One Gate Solution over VSAT assets to deliver secure cyber communications. The 3,000+ vessels owned or operated by Turkish companies worldwide will benefit from this integrated and scalable communications service for both business resource planning and crew welfare.
“The launch of Thuraya VSAT+ marks the beginning of a new chapter in our relationship with Thuraya. Together we have the potential to transform the maritime communications market,” says Nabil Ben Soussia, VP Maritime, IEC Telecom.
The Thuraya VSAT+ will be revealed to the Turkish market for the first time at the Expomaritt Exposhipping Exhibition, taking place from April 2nd to 5th at Viaport Marina, Istanbul, Turkey.
