Satellite Phones

Satellite phones are ideal for anyone needing voice and SMS capabilities in areas where no other reliable methods of telecommunications are available. Satellite phones can also be used for data services although the speeds are very slow and only suitable for plain text emails. If you are planning on regularly transferring large amounts of data we would recommend a satellite broadband terminal.

Satellite Tracking

We offer a variety of user-friendly handheld portable or fixed mount satellite tracking devices which transmit GPS location coordinates and customised messages from almost anywhere in the world.

Fixed Satellite Phones

If you're going to be staying in an area with no GSM coverage for a long time and you know you need to keep connected then why not look at our range of fixed sat phones. These take advantage of the Inmarsat I4 satellite network and the new Globalstar network providing a simple solution for communications if you are in a remote location.
