Common Issues & FAQs

When should I choose a docking station over a fixed station terminal?

If you have an application that might require the satellite phone to be removed and transported, choose a Docking Station. An example might be a pleasure boat–The Docking Station provides convenience to make phone calls without going on the deck. If an evacuation of the boat is required say to a life raft, the Satellite Phone can be removed and taken onto the life raft. If the Satellite phone needs to stay as a permanent fixture say in a utility, think Fixed Station Terminal. If the antenna cable length is greater than 88 meters, our Comcenter Outdoor is most likely, your only option.
