The Thuraya portfolio that will now be available to SpeedCast and its partners includes Thuraya SatSleeve, land and maritime broadband terminals, and XT satellite phones.

“The agreement between Thuraya and SpeedCast will expand our portfolio in the MSS arena,” said Andrew Burdall, VP of strategic business development at SpeedCast. 

“The provisioning of mobile satellite services, together with our core VSAT services, allows SpeedCast to be a one-stop shop for our customers.  This development will be especially beneficial for our customers located in the Middle East and African regions, where Thuraya’s network has good penetration.”

According to Thuraya, the agreement will strengthen its maritime presence in particular, and help support the expansion of its maritime portfolio. 

“The new agreement with SpeedCast will enhance our maritime distribution network and support the roll-out of our new maritime products and services,” said Bilal El Hamoui, chief commercial officer at Thuraya.

“We have seen increasing demand for our mobile satellite services in the core markets that SpeedCast serves, such as maritime, energy and enterprise.”
