Broadband Botswana Internet, Globalstar partnership bears fruit

SatNews Globalstar, Inc announced that its gateway in Botswana has gone live, enabling Globalstar to deliver affordable simplex coverage over the African continent.

This new gateway, in partnership with Broadband Botswana Internet (BBi), provides Globalstar’s full line of simplex services, including its SPOT portfolio of affordable personal tracking and life-saving solutions.

Much of the African continent has limited terrestrial and/or mobile infrastructure. In these regions in particular, Globalstar’s satellite services, which leverage the industry’s only complete next generation satellite constellation in orbit, provide a compelling must-have solution for seamless tracking of people and assets. The Globalstar network enables professional, corporate and government users to monitor vital infrastructure, taking advantage of the capabilities of M2M and the emerging Internet of Things (IoT). Globalstar simplex solutions can also enhance the effectiveness of life-saving emergency first responder services.
