Globalstar expands satellite coverage

Mobile satellite voice and data services provider Globalstar has expanded the coverage of its Simplex data service to include all of Australia, New Zealand and the surrounding maritime region. 

Globalstar customers in these regions will now have access to a variety of satellite asset tracking, tracing and data monitoring solutions using the Globalstar Simplex data network.

The expanded Simplex data coverage, which is now available on six continents, is the result of hardware upgrades made by Globalstar to the satellite gateway or ground station located in Dubbo, Australia


The gateway is owned and operated by Globalstar independent service provider Globalstar Australia and is used to provide customers with access to ground-based voice and data networks via the Globalstar satellite constellation.

The Globalstar Simplex data offering is a one-way satellite data service that allows customers to use Simplex data modems and integrated back office management solutions to track mobile assets - such as vehicles, trailers, cargo containers and marine vessels - using GPS or other location-based software.
