Similar to Wireless Communication System that we are familiar with, Satellite Communication System provides voice and data communication services with terminal devices within the coverage of its wireless network. The difference is: satellite communication network relies on the satellite out in the space, to increase effective amplification of the coverage zone, which would provide a guaranteed effective communication for fields, or areas that are not served or are under-served by terrestrial networks, or when natural or man-made disasters disrupt terrestrial communications. For the current most simple and direct satellite communication system, there would be at least 3 satellite needed to realize global coverage.
Satellite communication terminal products, are terminal devices which provide communication services relied on satellite communication system for users. It can be categorized into voice terminal (satellite phone), data terminal (data-access devices), etc.
Thuraya XT-Lite is a voice communications product launced by Thuraya telecommunications company (headquarter in Dubai, UAE), it allows users to enjoy ubiquitous coverage in areas that are not served or are under-served by terrestrial networks. It is ideal for people who are located in remote areas where natural disasters can render terrestrial communications unavailable.
Thuraya XT is a satellite phone launched prior to XT-Lite. It shares the same network coverage with XT-Lite. It was approved by IP54/IK03 certification, strong and durable. It can have data transmission with its built-in GmPRS.
Thuraya IP Plus is an advanced satellite broadband data access terminal, fast in locking the satellite, easy to operate, provide you with high speed mobile internet service at any time you want, offering “always on” mobile broadband access.
