Thuraya has launched a dual-mode, dual-Sim phone. The Thuraya XT-Pro dual bridges the gap between satellite and terrestrial communications, allowing users to move seamlessly across terrestrial and satellite mobile coverage.
The handset comes with a dedicated SIM slot for satellite communications and a second one for GSM communications. The new handset’s ‘Always On’ capability lets users alternate between networks, ensuring they are always reachable on both the satellite and the terrestrial networks.
Callers can be contacted on their GSM number even while on an active satellite call – and vice versa. The Thuraya XT-Pro dual is designed for users who frequently move in and out of terrestrial coverage, like government missions, and oil and gas refinery and exploration companies, both on and offshore.
The phone also comes with advanced navigation capabilities through GPS, BeiDou, Glonass and Galileo. Users of the Thuraya XT-Pro dual can also share current coordinates, enter waypoints to navigate to specific positions using the electronic compass, and use position logging.
As a global satellite communications service provider, GRC are able to offer the Thuraya XT-Pro Dual, as well as airtime and support, delivering a complete package to suit your needs.
