IEC Telecom is launching its Orion Edge+ satellite voice and data communication solution to the Asian maritime sector.

Orion Edge+ provides high quality, reliable broadband with cost effective operational benefits. It provides flexible data plans with no long-term commitment, making it suiable for offshore support vessels, tugs, and oil and gas contractors.

Powered by Thuraya’s Orion IP broadband and Thuraya’s Seastar circuit switched voice terminal, the Orion Edge+ solution offers high quality voice and data services bundled with consumption monitoring tools and controlled welfare applications, regardless of vessel size.

Orion Edge+ is available through monthly plans with no long-term contractual commitments. Specialised hardware offered by IEC Telecom keeps upfront costs low and provides full visibility for management control, both onboard and onshore. Orion Edge+ is equipped with Wan Optimizer, enabling TCP acceleration and bandwidth optimisation.

Crew welfare needs are enhanced by local Wi-Fi management which enables vessel and offshore platform managers to provide crew with access to social media platforms and the internet, with safety maintained by high level security systems.

Nabil Ben Soussia, VP Maritime IEC Telecom, said: “This is a brand new optimised voice and data solution, engineered by IEC Telecom and powered by Thuraya Telecommunications, that enables small boats to enjoy the high bandwidth that was previously available only to VSAT users. This game changer is designed to meet the requirements of short-term projects with flexible data plans, no long-term commitment, and zero upfront cost.”
