Globalstar to show how satellites deliver 24/7 security for assets and remote workers at IFSEC International 2017

8 Jun 2017

Globalstar Europe Satellite Services Ltd., the leader in satellite communications and emergency notification technologies, will showcase leading edge solutions to safeguard people and assets at IFSEC International 2017 (London ExCeL, 20-22 June 2017). Visitors to the Globalstar stand C1610 can learn how its suite of communications and tracking products can help protect valuable equipment and cargo, provide security and peace of mind to lone workers, and help users stay in contact with colleagues, family and emergency services even in areas outside of mobile phone coverage.

One of the main highlights will be SmartOne C, the satellite industry’s smallest commercial one-way asset manager. SmartOne C monitors assets of any kind, whether fixed or mobile, including shipping containers, transport trailers, construction machinery and vehicle fleets.

At the core of the SmartOne C is an accelerometer that alerts owners to any unexpected motion, such as attempts of theft. The device can also dynamically report asset status and monitor faults, significantly enhancing operations. What’s more, should the line power be interrupted or fail, the SmartOne C automatically switches to battery back-up to provide uninterrupted transmission.

Globalstar is also showcasing Sat-Fi, the world’s most powerful satellite hotspot, that turns smartphones and other Wi-Fi enabled devices into satellite phones. Sat-Fi allows up to eight simultaneous users to connect to Globalstar’s satellite network using their own devices. Sat-Fi makes BYOD –bring your own device – a reality, meaning that anyone can have reliable connectivity, enjoying the benefits of Globalstar’s 9.6kbit/s best-in-class throughput, no matter where they are.

At IFSEC 2017, Globalstar will also feature its pocket-sized GPS messenger, the popular SPOT Gen3TM. With this small, rugged competitively-priced device, remote workers can send an SOS with just the touch of a button. Emergency services instantly receive GPS location information and help can be immediately dispatched to the person in distress. And with SPOT, colleagues, operation centre managers, or friends and family can track the user’s location 24/7 thanks to an easy-to-use Google Maps interface.

SPOT products have been used to initiate over 5,000 rescues around the world, many of which were live-saving.

SPOT TraceTM is a small device that helps users keep track of their valuable assets via satellite. Whether tracking and safeguarding a fleet of vehicles or high-value cargo containers and packages, with SPOT Trace, the user receives a text or email alert when new movement is detected and is able to track his/her assets via Google Maps.

At IFSEC 2017, Globalstar will also highlight the opportunities for Value Added Resellers (VARs) in the security sector to add satellite communications to their existing products. By adding satellite communications to existing GSM solutions, customers can rest reassured that they can communicate even where there is patchy or non-existent mobile/cellular service. With the progress in satellite technologies and Globalstar’s huge investments in our network capabilities – from the chipset to our next generation network – satellite communication is now much more affordable and reliable than ever before. These developments are resulting in new market opportunities for savvy VARs.

“All these state of the art low-cost communications devices are enabled thanks to the Globalstar fleet of satellites, the only complete second generation satellite network in orbit,” commented Mark O’Connell, General Manager EMEA. “With our wide range of highly reliable and capable satellite products, we have more solutions than ever before to meet the security needs for a wide range of users at IFSEC 2017.”
