IsatPhone 2

Feature-Rich

The Inmarsat IsatPhone 2 is a robust, handheld satellite phone designed for use in extreme conditions—able to withstand searing heat, freezing cold, high humidity, dust ingress and jet-water blasts from all directions. This phone is tough.

Every IsatPhone 2 comes with a staggering array of features and capabilities. Some people say it’s the best satellite phone available. Either way, it’s certainly one of the most capable.

With an IsatPhone 2 you can connect with any landline or cellular phone to talk and text.

Further:

You can also send texts to emails, enable GPS tracking and send your location information. It’s also Bluetooth capable for easy hands-free operation.

Get Emergency Assistance:

 A key feature on the IsatPhone 2 is the emergency assistance button, which you can configure to text/email an emergency alert, along with your GPS position, to one or more recipients when the button is pressed. Additionally, it can be set to call a pre-programmed phone number when pressed in an emergency.

This button is clearly marked on the IsatPhone 2 handset and is very easy to use.

Please note that the emergency assistance button should not be confused with an “SOS” button—the alerts are not monitored by any formalized emergency coordination centre, unlike the iridium Extreme 9575 satellite phone, which has an SOS button that sends alerts to the GEOS global emergency centre.

Receive Convenient Call notifications:

If you leave your IsatPhone 2 turned on, but have the antenna stowed, you can still get call-alerts to notify you of incoming or missed calls. A great feature if you’re hiking or working and have the IsatPhone holstered on your belt or pack.

Fiercely Reliable

The Inmarsat IsatPhone 2 is supported by the popular Inmarsat satellite network, which uses geostationary (GEO) satellites to provide global coverage and boasts an average network availability of 99.9 percent—making the IsatPhone 2 is an extremely reliable communications tool.

Governments, NGO’s, news agencies, adventurers and enterprise organizations have relied on Inmarsat for decades. It is the network of choice for clear, reliable connectivity wherever you are on Earth.

What makes it so reliable?

Inmarsat’s use of GEO satellites is the primary reason. These satellites do not move across the sky—from our perspective they are fixed in the same position in space. Because they do not move, each satellite can provide continuous connectivity within their coverage footprint on Earth.

How does this impact performance of the IsatPhone 2?

Like all satellite phones, your IsatPhone 2 relies on an uninterrupted “line-of-sight” link with the satellite so it can connect to the network and sustain a signal. Because Inmarsat’s satellites do not move, once your IsatPhone 2 has a connection you will receive continuous, highly reliable satellite service from that location…assuming nothing comes between the satellite’s “line-of-sight” link with your phone. When this happens it’s called terrain masking, and can occur when mountains, tall buildings or other high terrain features block your satellite phone’s ability to “see” the satellite.

Once you have a connection, and remain in that location, you will never experience dropped calls and you can make or receive a phone call at any time you need—the IsatPhone 2 is fiercely reliable.

Quick Set-Up

Flip up the antenna and turn on the phone—it can take as little as 45 seconds to get a network connection when you start-up your IsatPhone 2.

Best Usage Locations

The IsatPhone 2 is an excellent product, and the Inmarsat network provides excellent global coverage and reliability. However, understand that terrain masking is an issue that impacts all satellite networks. No system is perfect, and in areas with a high likelihood of terrain masking, some networks provide better chances for connectivity than others.

As a rule of thumb, the Inmarsat satellite is relatively low on the horizon when you are located North of 50° N latitude or South of 50° S latitude, which increases the chances of terrain masking problems. Between these latitudes, you’ll need about a 20° upward look angle towards the equatorial satellite belt, without any vertical obstructions, to have a clear line-of-sight to an Inmarsat satellite.

Our recommendations:

If you must rely on a satellite phone for safety and/or check-in obligations, choose the IsatPhone 2 when working or traveling to areas with limited mountainous terrain and/or tall buildings—you’ll have great service and reliable coverage. Otherwise, we recommend looking into Iridium or Globalstar satellite phone options.

If you must rely on a satellite phone for productivity, incident management, or anything else that would benefit from a sustainable satellite connection, choose the IsatPhone 2. If your area of operations has high terrain features, please contact us about renting one for short-term testing in your location.
