The IsatTruck instantly gives broadcasters the ability to access satellite communications anytime and anywhere, with no installation, and the ability to move from vehicle to vehicle and use the phone outside of the truck.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 12, 2011
GMPCS Personal Communications, a leading global supplier of satellite communications, today announced the availability of the IsatTruck™ satellite communications kit for journalists and other broadcast professionals who need affordable satellite communications for immediate deployment to outside broadcast locations. The kit pairs the Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro satellite phone and a docking station in a rugged portable case. Included cables allow an external antenna to mount to the top of a vehicle magnetically, and adapters for the vehicle power supply, allowing in-transit use. The IsatPhone Pro Handheld phone can be used independently of the kit when communications are needed away from the satellite truck.
“Whether after a natural disaster like a tornado, hurricane or earthquake, or in the remote areas where news happens, broadcasters need communications in the times and places where cellular technologies fail,” said Jon Klein, Vice President and General Manager of GMPCS. “The IsatTruck instantly gives broadcasters the ability to access satellite communications anytime and anywhere, with no installation, and the ability to move from vehicle to vehicle and use the phone outside of the truck.”
The GMPCS IsatTruck Kit includes the following:
- Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro satellite phone
- Beam Communications “Pro” Docking Station with RJ11 interface
- Pelican™ CustomFoam Protective Case allows for vehicle to vehicle rapid deployment
- Magnetic mount antenna with 12 meter cable
- GMPCS SIM Card (service sold separately)
With the recently announced GMPCS Speedmail application for IsatPhone Pro data service, the IsatTruck also lets broadcasters send and receive files, emails and images with their laptop computer, in addition to offering clear and reliable voice service.
