Satellite Telephones - Saving the World?
Communication is the way of man’s expressing thoughts and opinions. It involves sharing the message that you want to impart to other people. It is the tool for understanding each other.
What would be the world be like if human beings were unable to communicate with one another? A world of chaos.
People used to communicate simply by talking at each other, but they found it difficult if the message had to be transmitted to far places.
But as time went by, through the utilization of the modern day technology, things become easy. Started from the telephones at home, down to the cellular phones and the recent invention, the satellite phones.
How do these satellite phones work?
Satellite phones are invented in case of emergency and unexpected circumstances. They allow you to have voice and data communication for instances that the local landline and the cellular systems are disrupted. This will serve as your ultimate resort for communication in the event that the telephone infrastructure cannot manage to handle the volume of calls or there is a disruption that occurred to the network.
Satellite phones are very different from cellular phones. Unlike the latter, it does not make use of the call towers. Rather, they use Low Earth Orbiting Satellites. The moment that you turn on the satellite phone, it will already connect to the any number of satellites that shows compatibility to yours.
When you make a call the signal of the phone goes to a satellite that is directed down to a ground station or a gateway that is also directed to your call destination. The gateway processes will take care of the switching of the phone rather than the cellular network. This is the solution for those who worry about places that do not have network. The gateway allows you to use your phone even if when you are in an area that is far from any cell tower.
See how convenient satellite phones are. In event of an emergency a satellite phone is a valuable asset and could mean the difference between life and death where communication is critical. It will be an instrument towards saving the world, because despite the odds you can still communicate with others.
