How the Globalstar GSP1700 Satellite Phone Works

The Globalstar GSP1700 operates on Globalstar’s satellite constellation consisting of 40 satellites that are in a concoction of different low-Earth orbits. The satellites are simple bent pipe analog repeaters which send signals to the 24 Globalstar Gateways located around the world. These gateways can support over 10,000 concurrent phone calls.

The Globalstar network provides what we would call multi-regional coverage. Large parts of the Earth is covered – most notably all of the Americas, but users travelling globally may very well find themselves travelling in and out of coverage – however this shouldn’t be an issue for users with limited travels into specific regions.
