Connect as many phones through the satellite link as there is capacity. Each phone uses a 20x20 Kbps stream when in use, so the connection is well within the uplink channel speed. For example, if you have a 1Mbps uplink, you could easily have 10 (or more) phones talking simultaneously. And at 20Kbps, you can talk for 6.6 minutes before you transfer one Megabyte.
VoIP phones provisioned by Ground Control may be used anywhere, not just over the satellite connection for which they are optimized. Simply connect the phone to any Ethernet port that issues a (DHCP
) IP address, and our servers will establish a link with the phone and activate it for use. This "Follow Me" feature is perfect for field professionals who travel or have multiple offices.
Most corded or cordless SIP phones work with our VoIP service, however, we recommend either of the systems below that we will configure, provision and test before shipping.
