Globalstar Deploys New Ground Station in Argentina
Globalstar has deployed a new ground station in Córdoba, Argentina, the company announced Thursday. The new infrastructure enables voice calls, two-way data communication and internet connection. Globalstar said it extends service throughout South America, and will provide coverage in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay.
The Argentina ground station will work in conjunction with Globalstar’s Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite network, directing satellite signals to Globalstar’s Internet of Things (IoT), Duplex, and SPOT products. Globalstar said the new station will also enable second-generation equipment like the Sat-Fi2, which connects devices with internet connection in locations beyond cellular coverage.
Globalstar said the coverage expansion in Latin America is a key step in the company’s global growth strategy. “By expanding our coverage, Globalstar has consolidated its presence in Latin and South America, allowing us to continue to offer efficient and reliable satellite solutions to our clients,” said Juan Porras, general manager of Globalstar Latin America.
