Equipped with Thuraya’s XT-PRO DUAL satellite phone, Yakovlev has a seamless voice and internet connectivity in GSM-covered and out-of-bounds regions alike. The phone’s navigational systems – GPS, Glonass, Galileo, and BeiDou – deliver an unparalleled connectivity experience even in the least explored Eurasian terrains.
Thuraya provided communication support for Aleksey Yakovlev’s explorations in the Russian Commonwealth, with a satellite broadband terminal and a satellite phone
For trekkers and expeditionists like Yakovlev, who frequent distant, harsh and cold regions, mobile satellite communication is the only method for contact with base camps, family and friends, ensuring steady connectivity for regular to urgent communication and navigational requirements. Facilitated by Thuraya’s equipment, Yakovlev was able to go on a number of significant adventures. His trips include an expedition to Armenia and the Armenian areas of Nagorno-Karabakh in May 2017, with an ascent to the 4,085m high Aragats volcano; a June expedition to the Vishersky Nature Reserve, with an ascent to the Tulimsky ridge – the highest point of the Perm region in the Ural Mountains at 1,469m high; an expedition from the Manpupuner plateau to the Mansiysk Pillars – one of the seven wonders of Russia, located in the Urals; an ongoing trip to the Subpolar Urals, with an ascent to Narodnaya and the Manaraga mountains – the highest points in the Urals, offering the region’s most spectacular vistas.
