Which Satellite Phone – Isatphone Iridium or Thuraya
Isatphone Pro – If you’re looking for an affordable handheld satellite phone for voice calls and text messaging that will work all over the world, then the Inmarsat iSatPhone PRO is the ideal choice. Car kits and docking stations for the Inmarsat iSatPhone PRO are also available so that it can be docked in a vehicle, vessel or building, for indoor use. Fixed (non-handheld) versions of iSatPhone PRO for buildings and vessels are also available. iSatPhone PRO has a built-in GPS with which a user can view and SMS their coordinates to someone else who can then plot those coordinates on Google Earth. iSatPhone PRO supports a 2.4kbps data connection which is rather slow and cumbersome, but when used in conjunction with the X-Gate application can be used quite successfully for small data transmissions, such as the downloading of weather reports.
Iridium – The Iridium 9575 Extreme is a high-end satellite phone for those requiring all the bells and whistles. Costing about twice the price of the iSatPhone PRO, the Extreme 9575 from Iridium is the most ergonomic and rugged of all the satellite phones with an IP65 and military spec rating. Like the iSatPhone PRO from Inmarsat, Iridium 9575 Extreme also has a built in GPS, but with the addition of an SOS button and optional emergency rescue service – suitable for both consumer use and personnel safety applications. Furthermore, the Iridium 9575 Extreme also supports more advanced optional tracking and remote workforce management features. The Iridium 9575 Extreme supports a data connection of 12kbps, or up to 26kbps when used with the optional AccessPoint accessory. Docking stations and car kits are also available for the 9575 extreme, as is fixed versions for vehicles, vessels and buildings.
Which BGAN – Fleet, Hughes, Wideye or Thrane
Voice & Data Terminals
BGAN – Should you have the need to for proper email and internet access on your global travels, the Inmarsat BGAN family of products and services is best suited to you. Unlike a handheld phone, an Inmarsat BGAN terminal is a portable satellite modem about half the size of a laptop. The reason the device is this size is because of the larger antenna that is required in order to transmit data of reasonable bandwidths (speeds) across large distances. It is this same principle that limits all handheld satellite phones to a maximum potential connection speed of about that of a dial-up internet connection. Inmarsat BGAN terminals can make simultaneous voice & data connections enabling true remote-office capabilities. Some of the higher-end Inmarsat BGAN terminals also have Wi-Fi access points built-in so that one can sit conveniently and work on your laptop away from the elements all the while connected to your satellite terminal, which would normally be left outside where it can ‘see’ the satellite. An entry level BGAN terminal costs about £1100 and supports speeds of 384kbps at a cost of approximately £2/Megabyte – far cheaper than cellular roaming (and of course, unlike 3G roaming, it works anywhere in the world (except the poles). A handful of different manufacturers make Inmarsat BGAN terminals including Hughes Network Systems (HNS), Add-Value Wideye, and Thrane & Thrane – Transcom market and supply them all.
BGAN Fleet – Maritime (for vessels) versions of Inmarsat BGAN terminals are also available, called the Inmarsat FleetBroadband family of products. A handful or so of different manufacturers makes Inmarsat FleetBroadband terminals including, amongst others, Thrane & Thrane, SatLink and Add-Value. Ashbury SatCom supplies them all and offers installation at various maritime service centres around the world.
