X2nSat is the first to sign a Service Partner Agreement that will offer Thuraya's dedicated M2M service and new terminal to customers in North America. Thuraya announced in March the launch of their M2M service and FT2225 terminal. Working in partnership with X2nSat, Thuraya will now be able to further extend its reach into US markets.

The gap in the market between the current 'store and forward' and IP broadband services will now be addressed by the X2nSat solution, according to the CEO of the company, Garre C. Hill. "X2nSat will offer the new Thuraya FT2225 fixed terminal, which offers exceptionally efficient bandwidth usage, low latency IP networking and high levels of security. The FT2225 always on connectivity enables real time monitoring and control to support applications in the government, utilities, remote banking, O&G and mining sectors," he said.

Additionally, he added that the launch of this new service will address the M2M / IoT market that requires a highly efficient, low latency, IP network.
