The Globalstar system is designed to provide high quality satellite-based telephony services to a broad range of users. Globalstar meets the needs of cellular users who roam outside of coverage areas and people who work in remote areas where terrestrial systems do not exist. Residents of under-served markets can use Globalstar fixed-site phones to satisfy their needs for basic telephony while travelers can have reliable communications.
Globalstar phones look and act like mobile or fixed phones with which you’re familiar. The difference is that Globalstar extends your coverage area beyond existing phone networks, carrying your call over an exceptionally clear, secure Code Divisional Multiple Access (CDMA) satellite signal.
