Satway is the first mobile platform that enables smartphone users to send free SMS messages to satellite phones in remote locations. The Satway app is available for Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The SMS sent by Satway can be received by Inmarsat’s satellite phones anywhere in the world.
Confirmation that an SMS was sent is a key feature of Satway, which offers invaluable peace of mind to the sender. Satway can be an even better option for SMS than conventional cellular networks because it does not depend on GSM networks, instead using data from satellite networks. Satway also stores the memory of the last number dialled making it easy to continue conversations.
Anyone with a smartphone who wants to send SMS to someone that is using a traditional satellite phone such as Inmarsat’s IsatPhone 2, could benefit from using the Satway app. Remote medical teams, security teams and IT managers could all find Satway a useful addition to their suite of smartphone applications.
Smart devices are now common place for business as well as personal use. However, there has been little point in workers packing their own smartphone or tablet if they cannot rely on getting a connection. Field teams can use their own devices with Inmarsat’s satellite networks to talk, text, use apps and the internet, no matter where they are deployed. That makes Satway a useful part of the ‘bring your own device’ toolkit across a range of industries.
As part of our Certified Application Partner (CAP) programme, Satway has been certified for use over the following Inmarsat services:
