Satellite phone service

Today, nothing seems easier than making a phone call, but unfortunately, this is still not the case everywhere. This very useful service is often not accessible via a cell phone even though it covers 99.7% of populated areas and far less in remaining Canadian territories. Satellite phone calls are available now, but there are still some idiosyncrasies regarding incoming and outgoing calls, coverage in buildings, types of phone numbers, related fees and coverage that vary by providers. This is where our team can help you make the right choice for your specific needs.

Iridium

We distribute portable and fixed Iridium phones. Many options are available, including voice mail and low-speed data transfer via modem. With Iridium, communication is possible almost anywhere on the planet, with excellent digital voice clarity and unparalleled reliability thanks to the recently renewed network.

The first choice of transatlantic sailors, Iridium is also used on treks to the North and South Poles. It may be the perfect choice for your busy lifestyle or work that demands absolute reliability.

Satellite messaging equipment

Satellite messaging is a safe and secure way to send messages using satellites to email addresses, SMS and more. This equipment does not allow for voice calls, but it does allow you to send out an SOS when you are in the woods and to reassure your loved ones by indicating your position. That’s why we offer a range of state-of-the-art devices to help you communicate wherever you need. Generally, these devices are more affordable than those that allow phone calls, and their subscription costs are also more accessible to everyone. Several options are available, so talk to us to make the right choice!
