Satellite Technology opens the door for communications in remote areas where no other service is available. Business can benefit from this  by using satellite phone technology, allowing contact with lower latency in calls and faster data rates.

Satellite Radio




















































For businesses that require constant and essential communications regardless of location, satellite radio enables users to talk to
anyone in their predefined group wherever they may be on the Earth's surface.

With infrastructure provided by Iridium®'s 66 LEOS (Low Earth Orbiting Satellites), two-way satellite communication has
never had less latency (compared to GEO Satellites). The cost of coverage is dependent upon differing tariffs,
increasing as the surface area coverage increases - this means your business is charged a
fairer rate, not a flat-fee global rate.

SMA aerial connector for an external aerial

What is Satellite radio?

Satellite radio is a two-way radio system that uses the Iridium® satellite network. It can be used as a communication tool in remote, isolated areas where there are no mobile phones or landline network infrastructure. Even if terrestrial network infrastructure is rendered unusable by human or natural disasters, Satellite radio can provide a stable back-up, independent from other networks.

Can I use Satellite radio in any location?

Satellite radio can be used in open spaces, like an large outdoors area or the rooftop of a building. Receiving and transmitting may fail if you're in a closed area, depending on the satellite position or any obstacles between the radio and satellites. Your body can also be an obstacle. When you're not transmitting, hook the radio upright on your shoulder rather than on your waist.

One-to-many Communications via Satellite

Unlike satellite phones, satellite radio users can immediately start talking to all radios in the same group, with just a press of the PTT (Push-To-Talk) button.

Can Satellite radio be used to make phone calls?

No, Satellite radio is PTT (Push-To-Talk) use only. Using the optional RoIP Gateway, the Satellite radio will be able to communicate with other networks.

What about communication fees?

Communcation fees are typically charged at a flat rate through a monthly plan, and there are no additional call charges.* Commmunication fees differ, depending on the coverage area and the number of talk groups.
*Depending on the country or area, a flat charge plan may not apply, or the service may not be available.

Satellite Telephony

For businesses, organisations and end users that require telephony coverage beyond standard terrestrial systems, satellite services open the door for communications in remote areas where no other service is available. Satellite phones aren't something new but they have rapidly improved, from lowering latency (delay) in calls to faster data rates.

Satellite Broadband is an essential service where conventional fibre or cable based facilities are not available, or where terrestrial services from the cellular network providers are limited by coverage or by speed of service.

International Satellite Television

For most of the United Kingdom, terrestrial TV is adequate for popular channels. However, satellite TV enables both UK and foreign viewers to experience a plethora of new channels and additional content from the UK or other European and Middle East countries.
