GSTAR Hotspot  WiFi Access to Globalstar Satellite Phones

Accessory adds WiFi to the Globalstar Satellite phone

The GSTAR Hotspot enables easy and economical internet access worldwide over Globalstar's mobile satellite network with download speeds of up to 9.6 kbps. The GSTAR Hotspot creates a dial up  connection over the Globastar handset for quick and secure internet connectivity in the most remote of locations. Users can now access their email and browse the web using their favorite WiFi device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.).

Great Arbor Communications is the exclusive designer and manufacturer of the Gstar Hotspot.

How does it work

The Gstar Hotspot's USB port connects to the Globalstar phone via the USB interface (GSP 1700) or serial interface (GSP 1600)  on the phone.  For the GSP 1600, an off the shelf serial to USB converter is required to conver the phone's serial port to a USB port. The hotspot has an internal battery which can power  the unit for up to 4 hours. Alternatively the unit can be powered through the supplied 110/220 volt DC adapter.  Upon powering up, the hotspot opens us a dial up PPP connection to the Globalstar network using the Globalstar handset as a circuit-switched data modem and allows authorized WiFi devices in the vicinity to share this packet data connection.
