IEC Telecom’s Orion Edge+ enters Asian market

IEC Telecom has launched its Orion Edge+ satellite voice and data communication solution during Sea Asia this week.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Orion Edge+ provides high quality, reliable broadband and flexible data plans with no long-term commitment. The flexibility means that Orion Edge+ is ideal for busy offshore support vessels, tugs, and oil and gas contractors.

Powered by Thuraya’s Orion IP broadband and Thuraya’s Seastar circuit switched voice terminal, the Orion Edge+ solution offers high quality voice and data services bundled with consumption monitoring tools and controlled welfare applications, regardless of vessel size.

Orion Edge+ is available through monthly plans with no long-term contractual commitments. Specialised hardware offered by IEC Telecom keeps upfront costs low and provides full visibility for management control, both onboard and onshore. Orion Edge+ is equipped with Wan Optimiser, enabling TCP acceleration and bandwidth optimisation.

Crew welfare needs are enhanced by local WiFi management which enables vessel and offshore platform managers to provide crew with access to social media platforms and the internet, with safety maintained by high level security systems. Access is granted via an advanced captive portal and consumption can be managed via vouchers or scratch cards for crew members.

“This is a brand new optimised voice and data solution, engineered by IEC Telecom and powered by Thuraya Telecommunications, that enables small boats to enjoy the high bandwidth that was previously available only to VSAT users. This game changer is designed to meet the requirements of short-term projects with flexible data plans, no long-term commitment, and zero upfront cost,” said Nabil Ben Soussia, vice president maritime, IEC Telecom.

IEC Telecom also recently entered into a partnership with Thuraya Telecommunications to commercially offer Thuraya VSAT+ across Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Middle East and Africa (MEA). This solution enables optimum flexibility of satellite service and is scalable to meet global and regional needs for essential communications.

“Together with Thuraya, we have the potential to transform the market of maritime communications,” added Mr Soussia.{/mprestriction}
