IsatHub Questions - Answers to the most common Questions for the IsatHub iSavi.

The feature list is long so we recommend reading the IsatHub Documentation for more information.

Internet Connectivity - A Global WiFi Hotspot
Internet speeds with BGAN Internet service offer speeds of up to 384 Kbps down, and 240 Kbps up. Connectivity is via WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) and unfortunately there are no LAN ports (Ethernet RJ-45) for a physical direct connection. Connecting your smart device, tablet or laptop is as easy as connecting to any WiFi Hotspot. Multiple authorized devices may connect and share the Hotspot. Estabilishing the Internet connection with the iSavi requires downloading the free IsatHub Control App to your smart device. This App is available from Apple or Google Play.

Voice Calling
IsatHub Voice is another free app available from Apple or Google Play that enables you to use your smart device to make and receive voice calls through iSavi's satellite phone number. Calls made to your satellite phone are free, however the calling party will be paying for making an "international". You have the option of adding a local phone number to your iSavi IsatHub so anyone can call you. You can also forward your cell number to this local number when you know you will be out of cellular coverage. More Info

SMS Texting
Existing SMS texting Apps should operate over the IsatHub connection. SMS Messaging is also available in the IsatHub Voice App using your new satellite phone number. You can send a free SMS message from here to any iSatHub satellite phone phone.

Email - File Attachments
Since all Apps on your smart device will be supported, you don't need to change any settings to check and receive your mail using your mail client app. Send and receive files via attachments. Use Email as you would with any WiFi connection.

IsatHub iSavi Photos    
Wideye iSavi Oil and Gas   IsatHub being held
The IsatHub iSavi is a lightweight portable satellite terminal for broadband Internet and phone service to your smartphone, as well as any tablet or laptop. Any wireless capable device may connect via up to 30 meters away (100 feet) via 802.11 b/g/n
The Wideye iSavi is quite compact at 6.7" x 7.1" (170 x 179 mm) and weighs just under 2 lbs (900g). The two buttons shown above are for power (left) and audible signal tone (right, for pointing assist while in sunlight).
Wideye iSavi in Hotel   Isavi Battery
The iSavi connects with one of three stationary satellites. So long as there is line-of-sight to a satellite, the terminal may be located indoors pointing out a door or window. Stationary satellites are great for maintaining a connection and avoiding disconnections that are prevalent in moving satellite services such as Iridium. Stationary satellites are good for long phone calls.
The iSavi battery is also the "stand" of the terminal. There is a button on one side that when pressed shows an LED battery level indicator. It is recommend to purchase extra batteries if traveling in no power locations. A foldable solar panel is also a good option.
IsatHub Side View   IsatHub Sim Card Slot
The LEDs on the side of the battery show the power level available. On the far right is the Power Port (covered with rubber cap for recharging the terminal.
Under the other rubber cap on the iSavi antenna, is the Micro SIM card slot. Only IsatHub SIM cards may be used with this terminal. Also shown is the mini USB port, which is only for firmware upgrades only.
IsatHub Battery Removal
  IsatHub Battery Button
The IsatHub battery shown here, may be disconnected with a button push and a simple twist. Extra and extended power batteries will soon be available for those that need longer service times.
  A view of the battery release button.
IsatHub Pointing Indicators
  LED Pointing Lights
On top of the IsatHub iSavi are two indicators that visually display where to point the terminal to find the Inmarsat satellite. These two indicators (elevation and azimuth directions) allow for quick and easy pointing of the terminal by anyone.
In direct sunlight, press the button on the side (next to the LEDs) for the audible tone pointer. Press again to "Register" the iSavi with the IsatHub network.
IsatHub Control App   IsatHub Current Usage
The IsatHub Control App provides real-time feedback of signal strength to help you point the terminal with the highest signal strength possible. This technique is much more accurate than the LED lights on the terminal exterior.
The Main Screen of the IsatHub will show the current usage of the current data session. We do recommend disconnecting the data connection when not in use. Disconnecting data while still being "registered" with the network means that you can still send and receive calls, or send and receive SMS texts.
IsatHub Usage Report   IsatHub Cruise Ship
From any web browser, you may connect to the iSavi web interface and review past usage of the iSavi terminal. Detailed session information helps you track how much data you've used at any time. Click for larger photo
The iSavi terminal has shown to operate on the open ocean as long as the waters are fairly calm and the boat is not turning. A connection from a cruise ship balcony does require line-of-sight to a stationary satellite, so it may require going to a top deck. more
IsatHub Battery Indicator   Isat Hub Elevation Marker
Pressing the small button on the battery displays the power level remaining indicator (3 out of 4 LEDs means the remaining power is at approximated at 75% from fully charged).
On the front of the IsatHub is an elevation indicator, which is not necessary to use, however, the pointing assist screens inside the web interface or control app will show you what elevation to set the stand at (if you are placing iSavi on perfectly level ground).
IsatHub Charge Port   IsatHub Top View
Next to the battery level indicator is the charge port under a weather cap.
