The iSavi globally extends your smartphone, tablet or laptop connectivity needs via Inmarsat?s IsatHub service, enabling users to talk, text and access the internet , while preserving all of the functions, contacts, apps and other important information you are used to on your smart device(s), no matter where you roam.
The iSavi is lightweight, highly portable and quick and easy to set up with no technical expertise or training needed. The power consumption is low and the battery can be recharged with the included AC/DC adapter or optional car charger or solar power. Simply point the iSavi towards one of Inmarsat?s global constellation of I-4 to access IsatHub. Pointing assistance is delivered via the intuitive pointing lights on the terminal along with a Control app downloaded onto your smart device, which offers other administrative features to manage service connectivity. The Inmarsat-4 3G satellite network provides global coverage meaning you can take the iSavi anywhere to seamlessly use your smart device. Once connected, the iSavi will become a Wi-Fi access point for any authorized smart devices within 30 meters (100 feet).
Because IsatHub is delivered over Inmarsat?s 3G network, your device can use its high-quality dedicated voice line to send and receive voice calls as well as text messages, even if your device is only Wi-Fi enabled. With international numbers provided by Inmarsat?s IsatHub service there will be no roaming charges, therefore, the cost of using the iSavi can be significantly less than using your 3G/4G mobile phone or tablet when roaming away from your home area.
