Satellite Phone Overview
If you work, live or travel in areas outside cellular coverage or in areas with inadequate landline service,
our Satellite Telephone options are for you. Eighty-six percent of the world's landmass and all of its oceans
are in areas with inadequate landline service. Satellite phone addresses these situations by providing coverage
in all ocean areas, air routes and all landmasses - even the Poles.
Iridium Satellite Phone
The Iridium system provides true global voice services by covering areas that cellular and landline do not.
Voice services are supported using the 9500 handset or the smaller, lighter 9505 handset. The excellent signal
strength provided by the Iridium constellation supports reliable connectivity across wide ranging landscapes
and situations. Every inch of the planet is covered by Irdium's constellation of 66 satellites.

card, can help keep you connected anywhere on the planet.

Thuraya Satellite Phone
Thuraya offers quality dual-mode terminals that offer satellite and GSM connectivity. This flexibility
ensures continuous and cost-effective roaming for users. Essentially, Thuraya subscribers would continue
using their national land-based mobile network, but will be able to automatically switch to Thuraya
satellite mode in areas that are outside the terrestrial system.
Another advantage is that outside Thuraya’s coverage area, subscribers would still have the convenience
of roaming in other GSM networks areas. This combination of advanced and flexible system designs ensures
reliable, global mobile services to subscribers.
