Please note that this activity is part of our ongoing efforts to upgrade Thuraya’s services and ensure stable and reliable network perfor­mance at all times. It involves upgrading the current Mobile Switching Centre (MSC). As a result, all circuit switch services delivered via Thuraya‑2, including Telephony, SMS, CSD and the narrowband packet (Thura­yaGmPRS), will poten­tially be inter­rupted for appro­xi­m­ately 60 minutes. The activity window covers pre-migration, actual migration, post migration and system monitoring. Rest assured, active connec­tions of broadband packet services such as Standard-VBR, Streaming-CBR, MARBB, THURAYAIPM2M and custo­mized broadband APN will not be affected. However, new connection requests may not be regis­tered on the network. Any incon­ve­nience caused by this activity is regretted.
