Thuraya has launched its tracking and monitoring (T2M) service in conjunction with the launch of the first product release of the year, the T2M-DUAL terminal.
T2M-DUAL is a mobile, dual-mode device for M2M communications and remote asset tracking and monitoring; it enables the simultaneous collection of data from multiple points.
The new solution allows for the integration of any third-party applications and has several built-in smart features such as geo-fencing, network selection based on least cost routing, internal battery backup and location and sensor data.
The T2M-DUAL solution is designed to support on-the-move M2M/IoT applications seamlessly on satellite and GSM networks, allowing for optimised connectivity based on the best available network.
Rashid Baba, acting chief commercial officer at Thuraya said: "Industries and businesses are constantly looking for solutions that give them a competitive advantage with lower risks, higher automation and cost-saving potential. As more players enter sectors like logistics and transportation, for example, the monitoring of remote assets on the move by managers increase opportunities for faster decision-making, deployments, worker safety, and operational efficiency. Thuraya's resilient network and IoT services already have a strong foothold across verticals that require high-security connectivity for remote, mission-critical operations. T2M-DUAL solution caters to these sectors' evolving needs and we are confident that it's well-placed to meet the market demands."
