GSN Nobile Coverage Area
The Problem
No Signal
here.
- Cellular Nobile networks cover less than 20¾ of Australia
- !t is economically prohibitive for terrestrial cellular network
installation outside populated areas and major traffic routes.
The Problem
- Large Primary and Heavy !ndustry is not stationary and
does not operate within the easy 20¾:
- Heavy Transport - Road/Rail/Shipping
- Nining
- Narine
- Gas 8 Oil
- Water
- Agriculture
- Police and Emergency Services
- These industries have inherently higher OH8S risks and
significant investments in mobile and fixed assets.
Current critical mobility area
addressed
- Nission critical voice communications:
- Satellite supports a wide range of people who share a critical
need to keep in contact with their customers, suppliers,
colleagues and the rest of the country. They typically live, work
or travel outside the coverage areas of conventional mobile
networks and include farmers, miners, long haul drivers,
mariners, police and emergency personnel.
- Dual Node Satellite/Cellular handsets:
- from as low as $519 (with Government Rebate).
- Satellite Nobile plans:
- from as low as $35 per month
- Satellite Call Rates:
- from as low as 25¢ per 30 seconds.
- No charge for incoming calls
