MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Globalstar Canada has launched a new communications tool that will provide fleets with a new way to stay connected.

Globalstar Commercial Data Services (GCDS) offers fleets a two-way data satellite communication option, utilizing the Globalstar Satellite Data Modem.

The new system enables truckers to stay in contact with their fleet and customers, even when venturing into the most remote areas of the country, where cellular phones are not an option.

"This new service provides increased flexibility for Canadian companies, such as those within the oil and gas industry that require remote monitoring of production or rig operations," said Peter White, General Manager, Globalstar Canada. "This example of data transfer is generally sent in short bursts, making the Globalstar service a cost-effective solution for remote monitoring needs."
