Mobile Satellite Connectivity From Almost Anywhere
The iSavi terminal operates over Inmarsat’s IsatHub satellite voice, SMS text and data service—delivered via Inmarsat’s global geostationary satellite network, which reaches everywhere on Earth except for the extreme polar regions.
A unique feature of geo-stationary satellites is that they offer reliable, continuous connectivity once a connection has been made from your location. This means no signal drop-outs—something that Iridium and Globalstar cannot advertise.
The IsatHub satellite service is designed for users who need an inexpensive, reliable and reasonably speedy remote Internet browsing solution.
The Fastest Mobile Satellite Internet Service for Smartphones, Tablets and Laptops
And because IsatHub services are delivered over Inmarsat’s 3G network, your smart device can use the iSavi’s high-quality dedicated voice line to send and receive voice calls as well as text messages.
With an international telephone number provided by Inmarsat’s IsatHub service, there are no roaming charges to worry about either.
iSavi = Mobile Satellite Connectivity That’s Easy To Use
Anyone can set up the iSavi in minutes:
Connect the iSavi satellite hotspot terminal to the battery, turn on the terminal, and align it to the closest satellite using the built-in aiming features. Once you’re locked on, the iSavi will establish a satellite WiFi hotspot. Up to 11 mobile devices within the hotspot’s 100-foot (30 meter) range can connect simultaneously.
As long as you have line-of-sight to an Inmarsat satellite, your network connection will remain strong and constant. With three geo-stationary satellites, iSavi can find a connection from everywhere but the extreme polar regions.
Use the iSavi terminal indoors if you have line-of-sight through a door or window. Or use it outdoors anywhere you have a line-of-sight to the satellites.
Frequently Asked Questions
The iSavi only provides one telephone line/number. So if 11 devices are connected to the iSavi simultaneously, whose phone will ring if the iSavi's phone number is dialed?
All phones connected to the iSavi, and using the Inmarsat voice app, will ring and the first to answer will be connected. It is also possible to place a call on hold so that it can be picked up by another user or transferred.
The iSavi terminal does not have a specific email app—and because the iSavi provides internet to your smart device (phone, tablet, laptop) with no restrictions, people can send an email to whatever address the iSavi user has access to on their smart device—which would likely be their normal email address.
There are two ways this can be done:
1. Simply call the iSavi phone number and ask to speak with a specific person if the call is answered by another user.
2. We suggest using a second line on your cell phone that can be used with a WiFi connection—with this, each phone can use a WiFi Phone app (Skype, Viper, WhatsApp, etc.), with a data connection, that would be specific to that phone and allow for calls in and out specific to this phone app. This method would use the iSavi’s standard data connection, and we have noticed that the call audio quality is more clear.
Yes—by using the iSavi IsatHub voice app.
Yes—but keep in mind that there is no way to send texts to specific users; all users will see all text conversations in the IsatHub voice app. It is important to note that with an active data connection, standard SMS applications (iMessage/android) will function as normal as well—just like with a home WiFi connection.
If someone is out of the iSavi's WiFi range, and then comes back in, will they have their device updated for texts / Emails that were specifically sent to them?
There is no way to send texts to specific users; all users will see all text conversations in the iSavi’s IsatHub voice app; email will require an active data session since the iSavi does not have its own email app.
Will Emails that someone wrote out of range of the iSavi’s WiFi radius, but then come into range of the wifi radius be sent out without a user interface to push it?
This depends upon the settings of that person’s specific email app, the iSavi does not have its own email app.
If the iSavi was powered off, but then gets turned on, will the network dump the texts/emails that were sent to this iSavi during the time that it was turned off?
This again depends on the person’s individual email app, but texts in the iSavi’s IsatHub voice app will update. It is important to note that with an active data connection, standard SMS applications (iMessage/android) will function as normal as well—just like with a home WiFi connection.
Save Money by Monitoring Your Usage
