Ahmed AL Shamsi, Chief Technology Officer at Thuraya said: “Today’s mobile worker, whether in the corporate or media sector, demands secure, high-speed connection coupled with the ability to transfer and transmit files without sacrificing workload capacity through their IP terminals. Thuraya and OneAccess recognize this and have developed these solutions to enhance IP performance to support the needs of our users.”

With effect from today, all Thuraya IP terminals will have access to the following solutions:

  • Up to 10 times’ faster Virtual Private Network (VPN) through an advanced router that includes data redundancy elimination technology, firewall, QoS and link management capabilities

The OneAccess solution balances the video stream over multiple links to enable the video stream to be transmitted in real-time with the right quality.
  • Enhanced surfing speed with WEBcompress, which dramatically minimizes transferred content and shortens web page loading times by up to a 75% volume reduction on the first-time load of web pages.
