Thuraya Telecommunications Company today announced the launch of the Thuraya WE satellite and LTE portable Wi-Fi Hotspot to meet the growing global demand for wireless data connectivity.

Developed in collaboration with Beam Communications, Thuraya WE bridges the gap between satellite and GSM broadband services.

The terminal facilitates seamless roaming for consumers, from satellite to terrestrial LTE services or vice versa, either via a Thuraya SIM card or a standard GSM SIM card from any of Thuraya's 395 worldwide GSM roaming partners, enabling users to utilise the most suitable option available.

Thuraya WE transforms any area into a Wi-Fi Hotspot, allowing the connection of up to 10 smart devices within a radius of around 100 feet.

"Thuraya WE reinforces our commitment towards offering innovative products. It is the first ever LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot device that offers flawless convergence between GSM and satellite broadband services. Built for ease of use, Thuraya WE caters to the needs of users in a multitude of sectors by allowing them to enjoy uninterrupted access to voice and data services over Thuraya's network when outside terrestrial coverage," said Ahmed Al Shamsi, Acting Chief Executive Officer, Thuraya.

Michael Capocchi, Beam Communications Managing Director, said, "We are proud to have been able to design and manufacture this product for Thuraya. WE is a pioneer product, delivering the only Hotspot in the market to offer dual mode satellite and LTE capabilities. It transforms any smartphone or tablet into a mobile satellite device by allowing users to access satellite internet at speeds of up to 384kbps and ensures that they stay connected even when their GSM service is unavailable." http://wam.ae/en/details/1395302614111
