NEW OCENS OneMail provides Gmail access to satellite users

OneMail for iOS and Android smartphones & tablets enables new level of remote connectivity

OCENS today announces the release of its OneMail mobile email service for Gmail access through satellite connections. OneMail revolutionizes connectivity while you are away by enabling you to continue to communicate with friends, family and coworkers through the same pathway you use when at home or the office—your Gmail account.


Gmail has become one of the most popular mail services on the planet. But the Gmail assumption of ample available bandwidth makes it a time and data hog when deployed over satellite phones. Until OneMail the fact that Gmail was just too slow and always too expensive over satellite connections meant that Gmail stayed at home or the office when we head off into the yonder with our satellite phones.

OneMail changes this for iOS and Android smartphone and tablet users by allowing you to affordably send and receive your mail through your Gmail account no matter where you are or what connection you depend upon. “OneMail takes a very unconventional approach to using your Gmail account.” states OCENS CTO Jeff Thomassen. “One Mail snaps back to you summary info about each mail waiting for you in your Gmail account, then allows you to tag only those mails that are of interest or important to you. We then compress and quickly pull those mails back to you.” OneMail sends and receives mail through your Gmail account, works with attachments and is completely private and encrypted. Mail is auto-archived by OneMail.

OneMail is compatible with the Iridium GO!, the Globalstar SatFi and 9600 and the Optimizer/Redport series of satellite routers. The service is available for a nominal monthly charge or discounted annual fee. Reseller programs are available.
