Thuraya's WE dual mode satellite and LTE Hotspot.

Thuraya WE is the world’s first dual mode satellite and LTE Hotspot that enables Wi-Fi access in any area. WE seamlessly extends the range of terrestrial GSM coverage via Thuraya’s satellite network for uninterrupted connectivity. It is a compact and portable device that empowers users to turn their smart devices into satellite phones in order to communicate with loved ones and use data applications wherever they go. When users move outside GSM coverage, they can seamlessly roam into Thuraya’s network with a standard SIM from any one of the company’s 395 global data roaming partners.

Acting Chief Commercial Officer of Thuraya, Rashid Baba, stated that CommunicAsia is an important platform for Thuraya as this event allows the company to continue developing a strong presence in Asia.
