Hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and fires wreak havoc on our telecommunications and power infrastructure. When one of these emergency events occur, it only takes one cell tower to go down to put the whole network at risk due to overloading. When the cellular system fails, satellite phones can be relied upon to make calls because it bypasses the local system entirely.

Sat phones rely on a network of satellites that are either geostationary (fixed above the Equator), or LEO (in Low Earth Orbit) anywhere from 500 to 1,000 miles above the earth. Satellite phones are rarely affected by violent storms and, depending upon their system architecture, work virtually anywhere in the world.
