New Sat-Fi links phone to satellite

ADVERTISEMENT

Louisiana-based mobile satellite voice and data company Globalstar has launched Sat-Fi, a voice and data solution that provides seamless integration between any wi-fi enabled device such as smartphones and tablets and Globalstar’s new satellite constellation. With Sat-Fi, Globalstar customers can use their existing smartphones and existing phone numbers to send and receive communications over the company’s satellite network when beyond the range of cellular.



This new technology means that people who find themselves outside of cell coverage can use their existing smartphones or computers to stay connected.



Through a convenient app and Sat-Fi satellite hot spot, numerous individuals can communicate through a single Sat-Fi hot spot on their existing devices using their existing phone numbers.



“Now that we have completed the deployment of our new constellation, Sat-Fi will have global appeal to those who need reliable connectivity beyond the cellular grid,” said Jay Monroe, chairman and CEO of Globalstar. “We have waited a long time to be in the position to announce this breakthrough product.”



Globalstar is expected to receive final FCC certification of Sat-Fi during the second quarter of this year, with shipments starting shortly thereafter. For more information, visit www.globalstar.com.
