SATELLITE PTT (Push-To-Talk) is a two-way radio system that uses the Iridium® satellite network. It can be used as a communication tool in remote, isolated areas where there are no mobile phones or landline network infrastructure. Even if terrestrial network infrastructure is rendered unusable by human or natural disasters, SATELLITE PTT can provide a stable back-up, independent from other networks.
Unlike satellite phones, IC-SAT100 users can immediately start talking to all the radios in the same talkgroup, with just a push of the transmit (PTT) button.
Wide Area Global Communications
The Iridium® satellite network covers the entire earth, including both poles, and can provide wide area global communications anywhere on the planet*.
Real-time Low Latency Communication
Using 66 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Iridium® satellites, the IC-SAT100 provides low-latency communication, and broader, more reliable network coverage, compared to Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) satellites.
In-Building or In-Vehicle Use
With the AH-40 optional antenna, you can use the IC-SAT100 in the vehicle (by attaching it to the roof) or building (by placing outside a window). The IC-SAT100 has Bluetooth® capability, and allows hands-free operation while driving.
The IC-SAT100 provides secure conversations with AES 256-bit encryption.
Conventional Radios and IP Phones Interconnection
With a VE-PG4 RoIP gateway, the IC-SAT100 can interconnect with an IP phone, IP, LTE, IDAS digital*1 and analog transceivers.
What About Communication Fees?
Communication fees are typically charged at a flat rate through a monthly plan, and there are no additional call charges.* Communication fees differ, depending on the coverage area and the number of the IC-SAT100.
What is a “Talkgroup”?
Using SATELLITE PTT, you can communicate with other IC-SAT100 radios assigned to the same Talkgroup. The coverage area of the Talkgroup is selectable from five sizes (see the table above).
How Do I Assign Coverage Area?
The coverage area can be split into different coverage regions, using circles, squares, and rectangles. For example, you can assign coverage areas to Tokyo, New York and London.
Can I Change My “Talkgroup” and or Region within a Coverage Area?
* To change the contents of a contract may require an application in advance.
Can I use the IC-SAT100 in any location?
The IC-SAT100 can be used in open spaces, like the rooftop of a building. Receiving and transmitting may fail, depending on the satellite position or any obstacles between the radio and satellites. Your body can also be an obstacle. Hook the radio upright on your shoulder rather than on your waist.
Can the IC-SAT100 to make phone calls?
No, the IC-SAT100 is PTT (Push-To-Talk) use only. Using the optional VE-PG4* RoIP gateway, the IC-SAT100 will be able to communicate with other networks.
* The optional OPC-2412 connection cable is required to connect to the VE-PG4.
