When it comes to satellite push-to-talk (PTT) solutions like the MSATe and several others, naturally the quality that receives the most attention for this form of equipment is voice communication. This is the primary use of these devices in the vast majority of cases, but it’s important for any fleet manager or anyone else looking into such devices to realize that these devices also have several other useful features available as well.
At International Satellite Services, we’re happy to offer the MSATe and several other push-to-talk solutions for varying client needs, including many large fleets and independent operators. For these larger fleets, being well aware of all the potential capabilities of this equipment is very important, both when making purchases and when utilizing equipment. Here’s a rundown of all the various features you have access to with the MSATe in addition to those all-important voice capabilities.
A Reminder of MSATe’s Voice Capabilities
Before we get into all the other features, let’s take a quick refresher on the MSATe’s voice capabilities. The equipment offers reliable coverage over the entire continent of North America, spanning up nearly to the North Pole and also covering the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico.
Furthermore, multiple different voice capabilities are possible with this one device. Both regular voice and push-to-talk are supported, with gigantic ranges for both. Private communications are easy to set up and can be encrypted if you so choose.
Now let’s look at some of the additional features you can also take advantage of.
Sending and Receiving Email
For many fleets and organizations, the ability to receive and send emails over satellite is extremely useful. The MSATe makes this easy with its convenient email system which allows you to connect multiple accounts in one place and also enable as many folders as you need. You can even access HTML-based web mail if you prefer, allowing for much easier viewing of messages on the screen.
Another useful feature of the MSATe is its ability to transfer files over satellite. This allows for large amounts of data to be sent quickly and securely, regardless of where you are located in the coverage area.
Weather Report Downloads
For any organization or fleet relying on weather reports to make decisions, the MSATe enables you to download comprehensive weather reports directly from the device. This ensures that you have access to up-to-date information on what’s happening in your area so that you can make better informed decisions.
Available in Numerous Formats
Finally, the MSATe is available in land/mobile formats, in marine formats, and also in fixed formats for remote buildings or other stationary locations. This makes it easy to find the right version of the device for whatever you may need it for.
These are just some of the features available with satellite push-to-talk devices such as the MSATe.
