Wideye Seagull 5000i: Satellite Broadband



The Seagull 5000i is a voice and data and fax satellite terminal with a built-in GPS tracking system specially designed for reliable performance in the harsh and wet maritime and land environment. This affordable, easy-to-install and user-friendly terminal enables users to make satellite voice calls to normal PSTN phones, mobile phones and other satellite phones through the Thuraya satellite network.

Besides supporting SMS services through its easy-to-use menu on the large colour LCD screen on the handset, the Seagull 5000i provides full-duplex, IP-based data communications capabilities through the Thuraya GmPRS technology.

These data communication capabilities, coupled with an on-board GPS receiver enables the Seagull 5000i to transmit such information as ship's identity and ship's position with date and time stamp necessary for Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) services that is increasingly being made mandatory by many national maritime and fisheries authorities.

The user can also take advantage of this internet data connection to check emails, weather reports or just simply for web-browsing. When the optional FaxConnectTM interface box is connected to the Seagull 5000i, the user can also send G3 faxes to other G3 fax machines on a global basis.
