[Via Satellite 11-04-13] TrustComm and Thuraya introduced Starlight, a new end-to-end, U.S.-managed implementation of mobile satellite services (MSS) delivered via Thuraya satellites. With Starlight, the full lifecycle of Thuraya’s suite of services is managed by a U.S. company, in order to better reach customers in the maritime, land, energy and enterprise markets.

“Starlight is designed for organizations that want resilient, assured communications with a demarcation point in the United States. For those end users, the Starlight platform significantly strengthens the Thuraya value proposition,” said Bob Roe, chief executive officer, TrustComm.

Starlight provides broadband IP and voice capabilities that are authenticated and terminated with U.S. IP addresses and phone number designations, based upon infrastructure that is fully controlled by U.S. personnel. Starlight will be available from TrustComm beginning in January 2014, and covering Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia.
