Following the successful launch of the handheld Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro, providing worldwide satellite communications*, Global Telesat Communications is now pleased to announce the launch of Inmarsat’s IsatDock Marine, a waterproof, intelligent docking station for the handheld IsatPhone Pro, enabling a full installation below decks without losing the flexibility of using the satellite phone whilst mobile, either afloat or ashore.

Rated at IP55 for water and dust proofing, the docking station has been designed with a waterproof, protective membrane, specifically for marine use and supports voice services via Bluetooth, RJ11/POTS, hands-free speakerphone or the active privacy handset. Other features include voicemail, text and GPS location data, while email, data and fax services are expected to be available shortly. The whole product measures 270mm x 189mm x 101mm and can be mounted on either a horizontal or vertical surface. It has an operating temperature range of between -30ºC and +70ºC, ensuring its suitability for use in all regions of the world.

The IsatDock Marine uses the built-in GPS engine to support tracking and alert functions including periodic reporting, manual position report updates, remote polling and the sending of an emergency alert message. Each unit comes complete with an AC power pack, 10-32V DC power cable, privacy handset, 2m Alert wiring loop, handset lock key and quick start manual – all at a basic price of £935 ex VAT. In addition there are four package options for a maritime active antenna and associated cable: an antenna with a 6m cable costs £360 ex VAT, with 12m of cable the price is £395 ex VAT, with 18m it’s £445 ex VAT and with 30m of cable it’s £475 ex VAT.

The waterproof handheld IsatPhone Pro has a battery life of up to 8 hours’ talk time and 100 hours on standby. It weighs 279g, measures 170mm x 54mm x 39mm and is available on its own for £500.00 ex VAT. However, GTC is offering the phone for a reduced price of £400 ex VAT when bought with one of the above dock and installation packages. This means that a fully installed system with antenna, handheld phone and dock can be bought for £1745 ex VAT.

Global Telesat Communications offers three post-paid airtime contracts: the Standard Plan, the Allowance 20 and Allowance 60. The Allowance Plans come with inclusive minutes to use, whereas the Standard Plan is billed depending on usage. The Standard Plan and Allowance 20 Plan have no minimum contract duration, making them unique within the satellite phone market.

GTC also offers a pre-paid option, where airtime can be purchased and the units stay active for an impressive two years from the chosen date of activation. These pre-paid call charges on the Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro start at £0.60 per minute.
