In locations where there exists no terrestrial telephony infrastructure (fixed line or cellular), satellite telephones are available to fill the gap and provide vital communication links.
One of the best-known satellite telephony systems available today is owned and operated by US-based Iridium Communications Inc.
The Iridium constellation consists of 66 satellites rotating around the planet in low-earth-orbit, providing a truly global voice and data service wherever it is needed, including poles, oceans and airways.
Its comprehensive coverage footprint is the basis of a critical communication lifeline to a wide variety of users all over the world.
Each installation requires a coaxial cable to connect the outdoor antenna to the indoor repeater unit, and the vast majority of GPS repeater kits provided by FalTech come with a 10 metre, 20 metre or 30 metre cable.
Sometimes, however, even a 10 metre cable is just too long.
