Features and Benefits Seamless coverage
Satellites act as one big radio tower for all of North America. Users don’t have to worry about service interruptions associated with roaming because it is all one network.
MSAT Terminals can be interfaced with existing terrestrial fleet communications infrastructures.
Talkgroups can be configured to allow for interagency communications between local, regional, and national emergency response organizations.
Faster start-up time, reduced up-front costs
Subscribers avoid having to develop, launch, and support their own private networks.
The coverage footprint also allows subscribers to expand or reduce dispatch radio coverage as their needs change.
Satellite networks perform during emergencies when land-based communications are not available.
The network employs the IMBE (Improved Multi-Band Excitation) voice codec approved by the Association of Public Safety Communications. Digital coding and scrambling prevents casual eavesdropping or monitoring of calls.
