New ground station to extend Globalstar’s services throughout South America

Globalstar, a provider of mobile satellite voice and data services, has announced the deployment of a new ground station with second-generation technology in Córdoba, Argentina.

The new infrastructure enables voice calls, two-way data communication and internet connection, extending Globalstar’s service throughout South America.

The new station will allow uninterrupted coverage in the territories of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay, says Globalstar, which adds that the installation demonstrates the company’s continued investment in infrastructure development in the Latin America and South America regions.

The Argentina ground station will work in conjunction with Globalstar’s low earth orbit satellite network, directing satellite signals to Globalstar’s IoT, Duplex and SPOT products. The company’s SPOT product line focuses on personal safety, messaging and emergency response, and is supported on SPOT My Globalstar, a robust cloud-based enhanced mapping solution.

The station will also enable second-generation equipment like the Sat-Fi2, which connects devices with internet connection in locations beyond cellular coverage.

As a provider of customizable satellite IoT solutions for customers around the world Globalstar is active in industries such as oil and gas, transportation, emergency management, government, maritime and outdoor recreation.
