How to turn your smartphone into a satellite phone-Travel Tech Series First edition

Thuraya SatSleeve(Satellite Phone adapter)

Sense of solitude is as important to hikers and trekkers as the mountains, hills, forests and scenery. A crowded mountain trail or forest simply loses all its natural charm. Hikers and trekkers in pursuit of isolated beauties of nature often venture too far and get lost. Even a small accident can prove fatal during these times as there are few options to call for help.

Satellite phones are the safest option as they have coverage that expands to the whole globe since they transmit signals to orbiting geostationary satellites or Low Earth Orbit(LEO) satellites. In this modern age of technology, the concept of satellite phones has been developed even further.

Thuraya SatSleeve is the innovative advancement of satellite phones. Now, one can simply attach Thuraya SatSleeve adapter with one’s iphone, ipod or android phone and turn one’s phone into a satellite phone. It is as simple as it sounds. One can retain all personal apps and information along with internet facilities while having the features of a satellite phone. It is the smartest, fastest and simplest way to transform your phone into a satellite smartphone-a truly innovative travel tech.

In the high altitude areas such as greater Himalayan ranges of Nepal, the risk of being disconnected is even more. The two well-established telephone network companies-NTC and Ncell provide mobile connections along Everest Base Camp trek and Annapurna Circuit trek which can be sketchy at times. However, there are no mobile connections for remote areas such as Dhaulagiri circuit, Manaslu Circuit and Tsum valley, Kanchenjunga, Upper Dolpo trek, etc. Thuraya SatSleeve will allow trekkers to explore isolated and remote areas as much as they want without the worry of being disconnected while combining the perfect blend of mobility and simplicity.
