Where’s your Satellite Phone?


Every year seems to bring the same propagana from researchers and the media reporting another bad hurricane season ahead. Whether this prophecy proves true is impossible to determine until the storms actually wreak havoc in our backyards. However, you can prepare for the worst of storms should this season mirror 2007. Remember how unreliable cellular communications were when Katrina hit?

International Satellite Services, Inc has prepared for this season by stocking a large inventory of Satellite Communication devices including the Iridium 9555 Handheld Satellite Phone. Also available mid July is the NEW Handheld Satellite Phone from Inmarsat…the ISat Phone Pro . Both of these phones provide global services, allowing users to make and receive calls regardless of location AND during emergency situations when terrestrial connectivity is not possible.

Perhaps it’s a good idea to also have a device that will access the internet when the terresrial network is down? The Wideye Sabre 1 BGAN Terminal is the perfect solution for browsing the web, sending/receiving emails and simultaneously making satellite voice calls… all in one terminal. The Wideye is equipped with a range of common interfaces, providing connectivity options in the field and the swiveled antenna facilitates rapid and easy pointing for a satellite connection. Combined with its sub-laptop size, the terminal is ideal for single users in an emergency situation who need to set up a complete mobile office in frequently changing locations.

I am fortunate to work in an industry that is on the cutting edge of satellite communications devices. Our products and services provide reliable communications during emergency situations when normal ways of communicating aren’t feasible. Whether this year proves to be a rough storm season or not, it’s a good idea to be prepared for the worst.
