In addition to GPS asset tracking applications, the Inmarsat bgan satellite network supports high-speed data. A First Responder or employee can carry laptop sized terminal for instant internet in the field.
Inmarsat satellites operate geostationary orbit, 35,786km (22,240 statute miles) above the planet.
Inmarsat satellites are known for enabling subscribers to communicate clearly from some of the remotest areas on earth by way of satellite cell phone. However, their functionality doesn't end there. These networks also enable data sharing, including uploading, downloading, and even video streaming from mountains, deserts, oceans, or the urban jungle.
The total fleet now comprises 10 satellites including the two latest generation satellites, the Inmarsat-4s (I-4s), which were launched in 2005. Together, they provide coverage to around 85 per cent of the world's landmass and 98 per cent of the world's population.
A third I-4 satellite is planned to eventually deliver, excluding the Polar Regions, mobile broadband coverage to some of the most remote regions on the planet through their BGAN technology.
The I-4 generation set new standards for satellite communications based on power, capacity and flexibility. A single I-4 satellite is 60 times more powerful than its predecessor, the Inmarsat-3, and the I-4 group is anticipated to have a operational life span through 2020.
Inmarsat provides voice and data services to subscribers through a versatile and reliable satellite network.
Utilize any phone or internet connection in the world.
Connect using an Inmarsat satellite terminal. This terminal will transmit and receive communication signals from an Inmarsat satellite connecting with your telephone, Laptop PC or video camera.
The satellite signal is returned to the terrestrial network and the communication link is completed to virtually any phone or internet connection in the world.
