Take your smartphone beyond cellular with the world’s most reliable satellite hotspot.
Today’s smartphones provide more options for staying in touch with friends and family than ever before. Unfortunately, they are dependent on the cellular network. Now you can take your smartphone beyond cellular with the world’s most reliable satellite hotspot.
Bridge between smartphone and GlobalStar: Sat-Fi is a VoIP to satellite bridge allowing you to send and receive satellite calls through your smartphone. You will be able to carry just a single phone and use that smartphone on both your cellular and Globalstar’s satellite network.
Fixed or vehicle locations: Sat-Fi is designed for both vehicle-based and fixed locations. Vehicle-based examples may include cars, trucks, RVs, ATVs as well as boats. Fixed location solutions may include remote areas where there is no cellular coverage and satellite communication is desired or needed.
Multiple users: While normal mobile satellite phones are single user devices, Sat-Fi allows for multiple simultaneous user connections. While only one satellite call can be made at a time, up to eight users may connect to a single Sat-Fi sharing its satellite connection. Once you are registered and connected to the Sat-Fi, you are immediately able to make outbound calls. Additional users and guests will be able to register their smartphones on Sat-Fi and make calls or data connections.
Sat-Fi App: All calls and data connections are made through the Sat-Fi App. This app needs to be downloaded on your Android or iOS device in order to connect to the Globalstar network.
