Maritime Broadband (MBB) from Thuraya MarineComms provides shipping industry customers with the connectivity they need to keep their ships running efficiently. Combining a reliable L-band service with proven hardware, Thuraya MBB provides a very competitive price proposition for maritime users who want to enjoy broadband connectivity and also keep control over costs.
Fast and reliable connectivity
As the most reliable segment of the satellite spectrum, L-band has provided the backbone of maritime connectivity for many years. Thuraya MBB provides standard background IP throughput at speeds of up to 444 kbps, meaning that maritime users can take advantage of fast connectivity for business-critical and crew welfare applications. Typical functions possible over MBB include:
1. Optimized email and web browsing
2. VPN for database synchronization for onboard M&P/environmental
3. VOIP, video conferencing and instant messaging
4. M2M services including vessel tracking and condition-based monitoring.
Congestion-free network for reliable data transfers
The Thuraya network features the most powerful L-band satellites currently available to maritime users and is known for the strength and consistency of its signal. As a result, satellite antennas are smaller and easier to install, while offering very high quality of service. Mariners are demanding users, who need their communications to work wherever they are and whatever the weather. The Thuraya network’s dynamic resource allocation process minimizes traffic congestion in areas of high communications volume, such as major ports or busy shipping lanes.
Durable and proven hardware
Communicating in the maritime environment demands hardware that can be relied upon to perform in harsh conditions. The Thuraya IP broadband terminal has proven itself in demanding maritime applications over many years. This combination of hardware from well-known suppliers Hughes and Spacecom, provides a solution that is tried and tested in a maritime environment.
