What types of Quality of Service (QoS) does Thuraya IP offer?
Standard IP: This is a contentioned service that offers shared channel resources among several users. This means that in any spot beam, the number of users logged on and are actively using the service will be sharing the available channels. The throughput may vary depending on the amount of data transmitted and received by various users sharing the channel.
Streaming IP: This is a contentionless service that offers dedicated throughput on a channel for a user. Within Streaming IP, different types of QoS are available ranging from 16 Kbps to 384 Kbps for uplink as well as downlink. In this mode, if a subscriber opts for 384 Kbps uplink and 64 Kbps downlink, the 384 Kbps uplink bandwidth and 64 Kbps downlink bandwidth is dedicated to this subscriber only. The throughput is constant during the session.
What are the uplink and downlink options available on Streaming IP?
Thuraya is the innovator of this service. The Thuraya IP offers Asymmetric Streaming services which enable users to have numerous uplink/downlink bandwidth options. It offers unmatched flexibility for variable uplink and downlink streaming bandwidths to suit any type of dedicated bandwidth requirement. This results in significant cost savings for the customer.
