Satellite Communications Equipment

Globalstar Prepaid Services

Globalstar burst on the mobile satellite stage in 1991 with value priced equipment and outstanding service. Operating a network of LEO (Low Earth Orbit) satellites which form a mesh 875 miles above the earth, Globalstar operates its service at 9600 bps (compared to 2400 bps for Inmarsat IsatPhone and Iridium) which results in very high quality voice calls and excellent data services. After about six years of operation, Globalstar encountered operational problems in the voice portion of their satellites. Globalstar has now completed the launch of its second generation of satellites and its level of service is onc e again near 100% service reliability, and their service packages, especially over North America, offer the best value in the industry. Globalstar recently expanded their home service area to include Europe, The Mediterranean, North Africa, and Brazil. They also introduced PrePaid airtime for the first time, enabling customers to enjoy the quality and bebefits of Globalstar service without having to sign an annual service contract.

In 2014 Globalstar launched and deployed their new satellite constellation which feature more powerful satellites capable of significantly higher data speeds. They are currently upgrading the gateway ground stations and will be introducint new products that will take advantage of the new satellite constellation in 2016 and 2017. The most requested services are two-way messaging, high speed internet access, and networked communications. Everything is possible and SPS plans to work closely with Globalstar to make your suggestions known and to keep you appraised of their latest plans.

At only five inches in length and weighing seven ounces, the Globalstar 1700 is one of the lightest and easiest to use satellite phones in the industry. With a retail price of $499 and Globalstar’s great monthly service plans and it is easy to see why Satellite Phone Solutions believes the GSP 1700 will be the industry leader for the next several years. SPS also packages the GSP 1700 in a To-Go package in a compact Pelican 1150 case along with an AC and DC charger for $575.

Priced at just $99 for the equipment and $99 a year for service, the Globalstar SPOT Messenger is an excellent investment is personal safety. Whether it is a family on vacation, a group of friends on a hunting trip in Northern Canada, or a college student working on a project in a remote section of the world, users are able to send Check-In I’m OK Messages to a list of pre-determined e-mails. Additionally, in the event of an emergency, a press of the red SOS button sends a distress message and the user’s location to the GEOS rescue coordination center. GEOS then dispatches rescue personnel to the GPS location. To Date, Globalstar SPOT has been responsible for more than 2000 rescues.

One of the most popular products in the Satellite Phone Solutions inventory is the GSP 1700 SPOT Combo. SPS has combined a Globalstar 1700 and a SPOT Connect into a sturdy Pelican 1200 Case, fitted with custom foam. The Combo Kit is then priced as an all inclusive rental at $55 per week – full SPOT Messenger service including check-in, tracking and SOS, and voice calls at just $1.00 /minute.

iPhone and Android users can utilize their devices with the new Globalstar SAT-FI and G-9600 Wi-Fi accessory for the GSP 1700 and 2900. These devices provide ease of access and reliable texting and e-mail capability.
