Exclusive: Manoj Sinha inaugurated BSNL’s Satellite Mobile phone service.

BSNL launches a satellite mobile phone service to cover areas without networks.

The state-owned telecom behemoth BSNL launched its satellite mobile phone services today via INMARSAT. The service was introduced by telecom minister Manoj Sinha.

Initially, BSNL’s Satellite Mobile phone service will be offered to government / security agencies. The service will be opened for others in a phased manner. Satellite Mobile phone service will be beneficial to BSNL since it will help the PSU to cover areas where no networks are present. The service will be provided by 14 satellites of INMARSAT (International Mobile Satellite Organisation).

Manoj Sinha, the minister of telecom, announced at the time the service initially launched that “agencies handling disasters, state police, railways, Border Security Force and other government agencies will be given the phones in the first phase.” People will soon be able to utilize the satellite mobile phone service of BSNL when flying or sailing.

The fourth generation satellite network from Inmarsat will enable communities and organizations in places with little to no connection to access dependable, secure voice communications, according to BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Shrivastava. This is an essential step in achieving Digital India’s goals and making sure that everyone can use the internet.

India’s First Satellite Communication Gateway (GMPCS), constructed by BSNL, is located in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh. The launch of the new gateway also marks a progress in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India initiative for India. The most isolated villages, companies, and marine organizations in India will be able to access secure connection.

According to Gautam Sharma, managing director of INMARSAT India, “Access to satellite phone communications would be made simple and seamless for consumers across the nation with BSNL serving as the primary driver of Inmarsat’s GSPS business in India. The connections will all be switched over to BSNL. BSNL will decide on the call charges. It should be between 30 and 35 rupees per minute.

Through a hand-held terminal, a subscriber of a satellite phone is able to communicate from any place, regardless of location. When a calamity strikes and there is no cellular or landline network, satellite phone services are quite beneficial. You may communicate from anywhere in the globe with the help of BSNL satellite phone services. The market for satellite phone services will expand dramatically thanks to Inmarsat’s cutting-edge satellite communications technology and BSNL’s robust telecoms infrastructure.
