Globalstar announces new ground station in Argentina

(11 June 2020 - Globalstar) Globalstar has announced the deployment of a new ground station with second-generation technology in Córdoba, Argentina.

The new infrastructure enables voice calls, two-way data communication and internet connection, extending Globalstar’s service throughout South America.

The new station will allow uninterrupted coverage in the territories of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay. The installation demonstrates Globalstar’s continued investment in infrastructure development in the Latin and South America regions.

“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,” commented Juan Porras, General Manager of Globalstar Latin America.

The Argentina ground station will work in conjunction with Globalstar’s low earth orbit satellite network, directing satellite signals to Globalstar’s IoT, Duplex and SPOT products. The station will also enable second-generation equipment like the Sat-Fi2, which connects devices with internet connection in locations beyond cellular coverage.
