MSAT-G2 Push-to-Talk Radio

The Most Affordable Satellite Voice Solution Available on the Planet

MSAT G2 Satellite Push to talk radio


Imagine your own private radio tower 23,000 miles high with a service area covering all of North America from the equator to (nearly) the North Pole, including coastal waters, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico.

Now imagine your fleet of boats, cars, trucks, buses or even multiple office locations within this coverage area all linked together by a solution that provides both regular voice and push to talk capability (just like a walkie talkie).  

You can speak privately one radio to another.

Or with a push of a button, talk to your entire fleet at one time in broadcast mode.

One of the greatest benefits about dispatch is that your fleet can communicate with each other 24/7, 365 days per year for one VERY LOW Monthly Rate

The MSAT-G2 is not only ideal for fleets to stay connected to each other via talk groups with one low monthly fee, but this satellite radio solution is perfect for sending and receiving email, tranfering files and downloading weather reports in remote areas where cellular and 3G isn't accessible.  GPS Tracking is also available.  

The MSAT-G2 is available for land/mobile (Vehicular), Marine (Vessels) and Fixed (in building) configurations.

Ligado and International Satellite Services, inc team up to provide the most reliable and affordable satellite push-to-talk solution available 




One Low Monthly Fee - Unlimited Talk Time 

As land based mobile radios are coming to their end of life, more and more industries are implementing the MSAT-G2 due to reliability and coverage.  In addition to dispatch satellite requirements, SatComs are also playing an important role in Smart Meter deployments.

A wireless push-to-talk network, Dispatch Radio Service relies on establishing "Talk Groups"-sets of users who share a common radio channel. Each communicator can support up to 15 Talk Groups. While users can belong to more than one Talk Group, each Talk Group can include as many as 10,000 members. When establishing Talk Groups, priority levels can be predetermined in order to define who will be permitted to listen and speak during each session.  Users Pay 1 Low Monthly Fee for Unlimited Talk Time. 

Users also have the ability to dial in to a Talk Group from the PSTN or dial out from a Talk Group to the PSTN.

The network acts much the same as a radio tower, turning the entire continent into a single cell and transmitting signals to and receiving signals from subscribers on the ground. The Dispatch Radio Service can also be configured to provide extra security to your subscribers.
