Magnetic mounts secure this compact 10″ domed satellite antenna to the top of any vehicle roof. Simply turn it on to create a moving (or parked) wireless internet hotspot with phone.
The Addvalue Safari connects to the internet at broadband speeds (464Kbps down, 448Kbps up) and is ideal for professionals that require a no-hassle mobile office. As long as line-of-sight to a geostationary satellite exists, connectivity is assured – everywhere.
Internet and Phone
The complete Safari system is composed of three parts – (1) The humidity-resistant IP44 rated in-car controller/transceiver with built-in wireless access. (2) An IP66-rated all-weather handset with color status display. (3) A weatherproof IP66-rated roof magnetic mounted antenna dome.
Any wireless device may connect up to 100 meters (328 feet) from the vehicle. The Wi-Fi access point can also be turned off, and any device may connect via Ethernet cable. Everything is automatic once the unit is turned on – just open browser to access the internet or open any email program.
The included digital display handset phone may make and receive calls from anyone in the world for $0.99 cents per minute. The phone includes voicemail, call forwarding, call blocking, etc. – all the normal voice services.
Global Coverage and Service
The Addvalue Safari connects to any of the four geostationary Inmarsat I-4 satellites using the BGAN satellite network to connect to the internet. This process is automatic and there’s no action required for operation other than turning the unit on, no matter where in the world the device is located.
With Ground Control service, BGAN terminals may connect anywhere on the globe except for the poles. If you’re within one of the below regions, you may connect at broadband speeds and make and receive phone calls from anywhere.
Ports and Power
The system uses 60 watts of power and runs off vehicle 12-volt power, either directly wired or through the included 12-volt adapter that plugs into the vehicle power port. Pack the compact Safari into a suitcase or ship it to any location.
In addition to internet and phone, the Safari supports faxing and SMS messaging. Connection ports on the terminal include two phone ports (RJ11), one fax port (RJ11), two Ethernet LAN ports (RJ45), one RS232 port for GPS output, and four GPIO ports for external control or indications.
