4 Satellite Phones and Products That Are Worth Checking Out

Mobile phones and, to a lesser extent, landline phones are still the major forms of communication anywhere in the world. But there are some things these two can’t do. Many places, for instance, do not have a complete infrastructure and technology to support them. Some areas like remote mountains do not sufficient cell towers to maintain a proper cellular phone signal. Moreover, roaming and long-distance rates vary greatly—and are expensive—for these two.

One of the best ways to fill in the gaps or to settle communication issues especially when abroad is to use a satellite phone. Although less popular than mobile phones, many have still found them to be highly functional and important for a lot of reasons. Thankfully, whether you are planning to rent or buy a unit, you have a couple of great options to choose from. These include the following:

Satellite Phones for Winter Emergencies

To say that the planet Earth is getting weird is an understatement. A long time ago, the issue of global warming or climate change has been put on the sidelines, perhaps because the real effects haven’t been felt yet. But when the Inconvenient Truth came out and varied weather conditions happened all around the globe, we started to pay a closer attention—even way closer.

Take, for example, winter. This season is definitely not uncommon. In fact, it’s experienced by the entire North America, Europe, and even some parts of Asia. Some areas have snow or ice for 12 months.

However, the “wintertime” this year seems oddly different. In the United States, there’s a huge winter storm that’s sweeping across the East Coast and the rest of the Midwest. It’s traveling at a fast pace, covering several key places such as New York, Boston, and Chicago. The snow is seen to be at least a foot in depth. Moreover, the temperature is expected to drop by -6 degrees Celsius. Residents are strongly warned of very slippery roads that can cause serious injuries and accidents, as well as cancellations of no less than a thousand flights.

Globalstar Introduces the Satellite WiFi Device Named Sat-Fi

If you don’t know anything about satellite communications and phones, then most definitely you’ve been living under the rock. Although they still remain less popular than cellular and smart phones, which are sprouting everywhere, they are considered the best alternatives to standard mobile devices. Over time, too, they have developed to become more responsive, more reliable, more portable, and definitely more effective than their predecessors. They’re able to do that by the design and sale of new technologies such as Sat-Fi.

Sat-Fi is the latest satellite data and voice solution offered by Globalstar. With it you won’t have to miss your smart phone at all. What it does is to simply convert any of your mobile device into a seemingly satellite phone, allowing them not only to send and receive calls or text messages  but eventually connect themselves online via WiFi. Certain BGAN terminals can do this, but what makes Sat-Fi a lot better is it’s handier and backed by a reliable and well-maintained satellite constellation from Globalstar.

A First-Timer’s Guide for Overseas Business Travel

on Monday, 07 July 2014. Posted in Globalcom

It's your time: Your boss is finally sending you overseas to meet with clients. You've traveled a bit before — but somehow, your senior trip to London doesn't feel like it's adequately prepared you for doing business in the foreign office.

So while you're busy preparing your presentation and making sure that you have the right adaptors for your electronic items, don't overlook a few other important tasks to get you ready to head overseas.

Get Your Paperwork Up-to-Date

Now that the summer is in full swing, you probably want to start hitting the trails and finally start crossing some of those items off your bucket list. Except somehow, the Grand Canyon seems just a little less grand when you're fighting groups of tourists for the chance to snap a picture of a scenic vista — and really? Every campsite near Mount Katahdin in Maine is already booked for every weekend until October?

The problem with popular hiking spots like Yosemite, the Appalachian Trail and Zion National Park is that, well, they are popular. You think you're heading out into the wilderness to get away from it all, when really there's a good chance that you're just going to encounter as many people out in the woods as you are at the beach or amusement park.

Accidents happen everywhere. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the supermarket or climbing Mount Everest — you can slip and break your leg in any environment.

So You Want to Get Into Backpacking?

on Monday, 24 November 2014. Posted in Globalcom

The age-old sport of backpacking has recently started to gain some popularity. With Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling book “Wild” chronicling her journey on the Pacific Crest Trail as well as plenty of new documentaries depicting the profound beauty and sense of accomplishment that comes with traveling the countryside, it is no surprise that many city folk and urban natives are developing the desire to experience the great outdoors.

Backpacking certainly is a rewarding pastime, but before you hitchhike to the nearest forest, make sure you are prepared for what’s really in store.
