Please note that this activity is part of Thuraya’s ongoing efforts to upgrade their services and ensure stable and reliable network perfor­mance at all times. It involves upgrading the current Packet Core Network. As a result, all packet services delivered via Thuraya 2 and 3 including broadband packet services using APN such as Standard-VBR, Streaming-CBR, MARBB, THURAYAIPM2M and custo­mized broadband APN and narrowband packet Thura­yaGmPRS, will poten­tially be inter­rupted for appro­xi­m­ately 60 minutes. The activity window covers pre-migration, actual migration, post migration and system monitoring. we and Thuraya highly recommend to power cycle (restart/reboot) the device of the customer after this activity to ensure conti­nuous network connectivity.

Rest assured, active connec­tions of all circuit switch services including Telephony, SMS, and Circuit Switch Data (CSD) will not be affected. Any incon­ve­nience caused by this activity is regretted.
