Telstra tests remote satellite phones

Telstra has taken delivery from Beam Communications, a subsidiary of ASX-listed Tele-IP, of its first remote calling satellite telephone system designed to be deployed anywhere in the world and configured from ac central location.

The product was developed for Telstra by Beam, According to Tele-IP "The units can be easily shipped, installed and are able to provide various remotely configurable calling options to the end user. The equipment is designed be used in harsh environments and includes such features as cyclonic ratings, solar power, robust user equipment as well as the ability to call anywhere on earth."

The general manager of Beam Communications, Michael Capocchi said: "The work that has been carried out in conjunction with Telstra over the last few years has now seen this solution become a reality. The deployment of these terminals into remote communities will set a precedent for other markets globally."

In a statement to the ASX Tele-IP said: "While the monetary value of this transaction is not material, the company considers the transaction to be of strategic importance as it represents the initial sale of a new product line and further reinforces Beam's relationship as a preferred supplier to Telstra Corporation.

"Beam has worked very closely with Telstra over the past three years in developing general and niche solutions for various applications. The latest successful application development undertaken by Beam is reflected in the purchase by Telstra of three Remote Community Calling solutions.'

The product is based on an existing Beam product, the RST100, already used by Telstra to provides service to Priority Customers. This enables the user to be presented with standard types of telephone features such as coin, card or coinless user handsets.

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
