To maintain our position as a leading provider of mobile satellite voice and data services to businesses, government, and consumers, Globalstar is dedicated to innovation.
On October 19th, 2010 Globalstar begins launching its second-generation satellite constellation designed to restore its industry leading commercial voice and duplex data services. Once fully deployed the advanced second-generation constellation and next-generation ground network are designed to provide Globalstar customers with enhanced services featuring increased data speeds of up to 256 kbps in a flexible Internet protocol multimedia subsystem (IMS) configuration. Products and services supported are expected to include:
The second-generation satellites are also designed to support Globalstar's current lineup of voice, Duplex and Simplex data products and services including the Company's lineup of SPOT retail consumer products.
"We are launching and deploying our second-generation satellite constellation, years ahead of our primary competition," said Tony Navarra, President, Global Operations for Globalstar, Inc. "Once the new constellation is fully deployed next year, we expect that competitive advantage will have expanded to as many as six years or more. We will also once again reliably provide the world's finest quality mobile satellite voice and fastest mobile satellite handset data services to commercial and government customers in more than 120 countries. Combined with our affordable and award-winning suite of consumer retail SPOT products, Globalstar will unquestionably offer the world's most extensive lineup of high quality mobile satellite services to the broadest range of commercial and retail consumer customers around the globe."
Understanding the future of the satellite business has driven us to launch, upgrade, replace, renew, recalibrate, invent, innovate and introduce the next generation of satellite communications.
