Thuraya poised for government collaborations, post KSA roadshows

Thuraya Telecommunications Company recently held meetings with senior-level officials and government system integrators in the Kingdom to present its latest product portfolio and explore possibilities for collaborative ventures. The roadshow that took place in July and included visits to Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam, was developed in line with increasing Saudi Arabia’s public sector interests. Thuraya’s national service partner, Farhan Commercial Company played a pivotal role in enabling meetings with the country’s commanding officers and decision-makers.
Each meeting maintained a live demo component: Thuraya’s suite of land voice and data products was on display and customers were allowed to conduct testing on the equipment of their interest. Many meetings were held with specialized solution integrators who work with the government to deliver customized applications for military and government vehicles. Thuraya also held discussions to determine the scope for developing specific M2M solutions such as seismic sensors for the Saudi market.
Fahad Kahoor, director of market development at Thuraya and team lead on the Saudi trip, said: “Our relationship with influential companies like Farhan has given us a strong foothold in Saudi Arabia and helped us gain steady growth in key vertical markets across the region.
Having completed our most recent series of meetings, we are poised to deliver tailored solutions for existing clients and look forward to actualizing partnerships that add advanced satellite capabilities to the Saudi government’s technology-centric plans.”
He added: “By being in close contact with service partners and clients, we had the advantage of listening to customer feedback in a face-to-face setting. We value these comments as these help us improve our value proposition and product features in a manner that best benefits the end-user.”
Thuraya’s land data products have long served government and military sectors around the world with satellite-based communication needs. Its devices are compact, ruggedized and offer advanced vehicular broadband connectivity and secure communications on-the-move. Thuraya’s SatSleeve+ for example is a device that caters to the rising “bring your own device” phenomenon and presents the fastest way for an individual to transform their existing phone into a satellite smartphone.
