Outfitter Satellite offers Inmarsat BGAN, Inmarsat IsatHub, and Inmarsat FleetBroadband. These services provide highly reliable broadband internet access for portable, land vehicular, and marine applications.
As the coverage map shows, geostationary Inmarsat satellites provide near global coverage, excluding the polar regions.
The popular Inmarsat BGAN service provides voice, shared-bandwidth internet, streaming IP data, ISDN, and SMS messaging -- all using nothing more than a small portable terminal. There are a wide variety of terminal models available -- all with different features and capabilities. Inmarsat FleetBroadband is a maritime service that offers similar capabilities to Inmarsat BGAN, except that multiple voice channels are supported on a single marine grade terminal.
IsatHub is a new entry-level broadband service with lower usage cost and lower data speeds than BGAN. The Wideye iSavi by AddValue is particularly effective for smart phone users needing global connectivity. See the video below for details...
Cobham Sailor 150, Sailor 250, and Sailor 500 FleetBroadband terminals provide high reliability voice, SMS messaging, broadband internet access, and streaming IP data.
The Sailor 150 FleetBroadband is an entry level terminal with internet access speeds of up to 150 kbps up/down. Up to 4 voice simultaneous lines can be configured on the terminal (based on the service plan selected). Conventional G3 fax also is supported. Outfitter Satellite offers the Small Vessel Prepaid Plan for vessels under 300 GWT needing short term service packages.
The Sailor 500 FleetBroadband offers up to 432 kbps internet access, streaming IP data up to 256 kbps, and 64 kbps ISDN. Up to 9 simultaneously voice calls can be supported (on selected service plans). Outfitter Satellite offers FleetBroadband service plans with various data bundle sizes including 250 MB per month and 2 GB per month bundle postpaid plans. Please call for more information.
We offer satellite-optimized email software, high-usage monitoring, online traffic reports, and an online firewall to block unwanted IP traffic types. On most plans, we can offer PoP-level firewall services to block undesired traffic, PoP-level web compression, and PoP-level web filtering. Automatic email alerts are available on postpaid plans to inform the user when usage exceeds expected thresholds (limitations apply). Also, near realtime call traffic reports and data usage traffic reports are available through a web-based service (limitations apply).
The Inmarsat coverage map shown here assumes that your Inmarsat BGAN terminal's antenna has a direct line of sight with an Inmarsat I-4 satellite. Local obstructions such as mountains can block your line of sight, especially if you are operating in the mountains or you are near the edge of one of the three Inmarsat I-4 satellite foot prints where the satellite would be low on the horizon. It is the responsibility of the user to carefully consider whether the terrain may have obstructions that would block the satellite from view at that location. Outfitter Satellite can give you the elevation angle and azimuthal angle of the best satellite for any particular latitude and longitude if you provide the GPS position of the location where you intend to use the terminal.
