Companion™—Satellite Email Hotspot
A compact satellite email hotspot solution to getting email from remote locations
Do you work or play in remote areas outside of cell coverage but rely on email? The Nupoint Companion—satellite email hotspot is an easy to use, portable WiFi email server that plugs into the USB port of your satellite phone (3.50” x .20” x .40”/8.89 cms x .50 cms x 1.01 cms) and hooks up to your existing email account using your own device (laptop, tablet, or smartphone). It provides satellite connectivity, so you can stay connected no matter how remote your location is.
Automatically stay connected to email when travelling in remote locations
The Nupoint Companion satellite email hotspot removes all network problems by providing an instantaneous ‘send and forget’ email communications experience, so you can maintain productivity by continuing on with your other activities while your email flow into your mailbox. Expecting an urgent email? The Companion will automatically download the email for you. There is no need to use your satellite airtime to keep checking manually for email.
Easy to set up using your existing devices and email accounts
With the Companion you don’t have to lug a bulky laptop, setup complex device drivers, or use unfamiliar email applications. The Companion satellite email hotspot allows you to use your existing email applications, devices, and accounts. And the built-in Companion firewall ensures unwanted use of the satellite data is prevented (e.g., application software updates that can wait until you are back home).
In addition to staying connected by email, you can also enable the optional satellite internet hotspot mode to directly access the internet to check weather reports, browse the internet, or just stay connected with social media sites. You can remain in complete control of data usage by turning off the internet hotspot mode when you no longer need access to the internet, and this does not affect your email connection.
Share the benefits of satellite connectivity with remote colleagues
The Companion satellite email hotspot supports multiple simultaneous users, so you can share the benefits of your Companion with friends or colleagues. Each user can have their own email account to help keep email private; multiple users can share one satellite handset to access their email account using their own email device (such as laptop, tablet, or smartphone).
Allows you to set satellite data limits to control costs
Each Companion has an administrator account that permits you to add or remove users as desired. The administrator account also helps you control costs by restricting data limits on specific email accounts and controlling when the satellite internet hotspot mode is used.
How Companion sends and receives email over satellite networks
Companion is a compact fully functioning WiFi email server. It works in conjunction with a secure Nupoint proxy server to automate the email experience; it handles the details of sending and receiving email over the satellite network so you don’t have to.
What satellite networks does the Companion work on?
The Companion satellite email hotspot has been tested on and approved on Globalstar and Inmarsat satellite networks. Testing is underway on other networks––contact us for more information.
