The Red Phone Network is the answer to "What happens during a communication outage?". Red Phones connect with other Red Phones for full voice communication during the most sever and widespread phone, cellular, or Internet outages. By using the Ground Control satellite network, Red Phones are independent of any terrestrial network, so all Red Phones may call other Red Phones at all times. Red Phone service is a special off-grid VoIP phone service that can be used to call any other Red Phone user (no PSTN access) at no per-minute cost other than the small amount of data used over the satellite link to make the call.

The Red Phone Network - A Satellite Based PBX Phone Network
Many organizations rely on VoIP or their PBX or phone provider to ensure daily communication, but these technologies rely on using the Internet or terrestrial lines that have the potential of going offline for any number of reasons... A back-hoe cut, fallen trees, floods, cyber terrorists, lightning, hurricanes, are a few of the many reasons communications could be taken offline. So to maintain a voice link to all critical locations, the ONLY viable means is satellite, which inherently avoids all localized and wide spread outages since its link is in orbit 22,000 miles above the equator.

Red Phone Network

The Red Phone Network - Off Grid
The Red Phone Network's centralized PBX voice server is located at the satellite teleport which itself does not rely on any outside links to maintain a fully operational phone network. It also has redundant power resources so that it may itself stay online during a power outage.

All Red Phones are always available to other Red Phones at all times. All that is required is a satellite link and Red Phones connected to that link.

Since Red Phones are preconfigured prior to shipping, they are plug-and-play easy to install. Both the Red Phone and the satellite gateway should have backup power at each site so they may stay operational during any local power outage.

Red Phones are an excellent way to have all of offices and mobile sites stay connected at all times, just as long as power is supplied to the satellite phone and satellite system it's connected with. Commercial clients are given their own unique extension number for each Red Phone purchased. Companies may publish their own Red Phone directory internally. Costs are the same at $49 annually service subscription with unlimited calling and $0 per minute costs.
