Satellite Iridium Network
Utilising a selection of satellite communicators like Garmin InReach, Rock7 and Protigear you can connect with your remote working teams via the Iridium short burst data (SBD) network.
The SBD satellite constellation is low orbit, meaning the satellites move across the sky, giving the added advantage of 100% global coverage and connection even with the smallest sky view.
Satellite Global Star Network
Connect your remote working teams to GetHomeSafe with the Global Star network in selected regions with the Spot range of satellite communicators, including the two way messenger Sopt X with full a blackberry style keypad.
