With the growing demand for enterprise applications to support remote operations, Thuraya Telecommunications (www.Thuraya.com) and IEC Telecom (www.IEC-Telecom.com) jointly presents new features of the innovative and future-ready communication solution – Thuraya WE (https://bit.ly/3iwp5Sn). Enabling affordable prepaid plans for real-time communications and providing high-end video transmissions from the field, Thuraya WE operates on the uninterrupted coverage of the Thuraya network over two-thirds of the world on MSS to solve the main pain points of operations, no matter where they are.
For almost every facet of day-to-day work and personal life, we would expect “there is an app for it”. Businesses are capitalizing on a $ 105 billion app economy (as of 2020), as evidenced by a TCCA by 57% this year. In recent years, and due to the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in demand for enterprise applications to support remote operations. Staying offline is no longer affordable. Unplanned downtime is estimated to cost businesses $ 50 billion each year, and maintenance expenses account for 15-40% of production costs.
It is relatively easy to ensure business continuity for remote operations in areas under GSM blanket. Keeping remote units connected is much more difficult. Today, many business applications have been optimized for a narrowband satcom chain, but social programs and video maintenance have clearly remained off budget. Thuraya WE will change the status quo, enabling affordable prepaid plans for personal communication and providing premium video transmission from the field.
“Our solutions are inspired by daily collaboration with humanitarian missions and remote companies around the world. We know the challenges on the ground firsthand, and by introducing new capabilities of Thuraya WE, we have focused first and foremost on the main pain points of operations in remote locations. In collaboration with Thuraya Telecommunications, we have united our efforts to offer the most affordable satcom connectivity to remote teams ”, shares Nabil Ben Soussia, CEO Asia, Middle East & CIS, IEC Telecom Group.
“Thuraya WE can be used to enable a wellness program at costs comparable to GSM, specifies Mr. Ben Soussia. Communication credits can be offered within a company CSR program, and as and when required, additional units may be made available for purchase individually on site or through distribution channels in each country.
When paired with the OneAssist app (powered by DigiGone) and a hands-free headset (a fully rugged device that can be attached to headsets and used with safety glasses), Thuraya WE becomes a powerful management solution at distance. OneAssist is accessed through a high-resolution screen that matches a 7-inch tablet view. Field staff can stay in touch with headquarters, share live video and snapshots of on-site ongoing issues, and receive technical support from remote experts, even in low-bandwidth and difficult-to-access environments . This will not only increase operational efficiency, but will also reduce costs by eliminating the logistical hassle of sending a technical support team to the field whenever it is necessary to change a spare part. or install an update.
“Thanks to Thuraya’s resilient network and its extensive coverage over two-thirds of the globe, Thuraya WE guarantees ease of use, affordability and efficiency,” said Jassem Nasser, Director of Strategy and Marketing, Thuraya Telecommunications Company. “Thuraya WE is an innovative solution that extends the reach of business operations from various sectors to areas outside of land cover. As market demands change rapidly, we at Thuraya focus on innovative solutions and flexible applications that keep our customers one step ahead of the competition.
Lightweight and compact, Thuraya WE is an innovative communication solution to ensure adaptability to the new levels of productivity, operational efficiency and security of today’s business environment. Giving remote teams reliable connectivity wherever they are and access to applications optimized for business and wellness activities is a powerful strategy for ensuring business continuity while gaining a competitive advantage.
