Hey all,

Besides voice quality and data reliability, what other issues are involved when testing satellite phone and satellite services? I know that battery life plays a big part in this, but I'm curious about the actual functionality.

Thanks!

:shock: :?

Hello,
When you are testing a satellite phone, you need to first examine the requirements. Then, you need to see whether the requirements are being met by a give sat phone provider. Most of these providers use proprietary hardware. Also, see whether they support any standards.
Some of the important points to check in a satellite phone are:
    Coverage area
    Voice Service
    Data Service
    Maximum available data rate
    Mobile Internet Access
    Interoperability with other Cell Phone or Satellite Phones
Not all satellite phone providers cover all the areas. A comparative analysis is provided http://www.rfdesign.info/doc-desc/6/Comparison-of-voice-and-data-services-using-Iridium-Globalstar-and-Thuraya-satellite-phone-services.html

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
