Why Satellite Phones Work Everywhere

on Thursday, 02 October 2014.

Sometimes technology can seem like magic. You press a button on your computer, and suddenly you can access all the world’s information from the comfort of your home. You put the key in your car’s ignition, and you can travel at speeds of 100 miles per hour or more. You pick up a phone, and even in the remotest mountain range, you can wish your mom a happy birthday from half a world away.

Satellite phone technology is indispensable to all sorts of travelers, but not many people understand exactly how the technology works. Just in looking at satellite phone coverage maps, it can be hard to believe that such significant coverage can exist in a handheld device. In more ways than one, satellite phones offer their carriers more perks even than modern-day, flashy smartphones, and that’s all due to the way satellite phone networks are constructed.

on Monday, 18 August 2014. Posted in Industry

You’ve been waiting for it since your first interview — you knew your company frequently had dealings with non-domestic businesses, and you’ve been itching to meet some clients or visit a conference in a foreign country. You’ve finally been asked to attend to some important business in a brand new country. But hold on a minute; before you just throw some dress shirts in a carry-on and head to the nearest airport, stop to consider what you will really need when you’re trying to conduct business that far away from the office. Here is some crucial tech you probably forgot about when you were packing your bag; without them, you might be able to see your clients, but you probably won’t be able to dazzle them.

Forge Your Own Path: The Least Traveled Hiking Routes in America

on Friday, 25 July 2014. Posted in Globalcom

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.

6 Things You Might Not Know About Yellowstone

on Thursday, 17 July 2014. Posted in Industry

Wyoming's Yellowstone National Park is one of the most visited national parks in the U.S., with more than three million people making the trek each year to check out the unparalleled natural beauty, and yes, Old Faithful, one of the hundreds of active geysers located within the nearly 3,500 square miles of protected land.

While park rangers note that most visitors come to see the "geysers, grizzlies and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone" there is a lot more to Yellowstone than water spouts and bears. In fact, as the world's oldest national park, there's a lot about the area that many people don't realize.

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
The airport security line or foreign customs checkpoint is not the place to discover that your passport expired six months ago or that you need a visa to conduct business in your destination country. Some countries, like Brazil, India, China and United Arab Emirates (all common destinations for business travelers) requires visas for all American visitors regardless of the purpose of travel, so confirm the requirements in advance.

Camping Goes High Tech: 6 Gadgets You Shouldn’t Leave Home Without

on Wednesday, 25 June 2014. Posted in Industry

Tent? Check. Sleeping bags? Check. Flashlight? Check.

You might think that you're ready to hit the great outdoors with nothing more than a warm, dry place to sleep and some trail mix, but if you want to camp in comfort, you'll probably want to bring a bit more than that. After all, you're supposed to be having fun, not auditioning for a spot on "Survivor," right?

Okay, so you would probably survive for a few nights in the woods without some of the following gadgets and gizmos, but you probably wouldn't have nearly as much fun — or be as safe. Because after all, nothing will ruin a camping trip faster than an injury, and if you don't have everything you'll need, you won't be comfortable and won't want to head back out again.

So as you're loading your pack for your next wilderness adventure, don't forget these gadgets — they might just save your life (or at least make the trip more enjoyable.)

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.
