Up to 15 times faster satellite email and up to 85% airtime savings when using OCENS Mail software with the Isatphone Pro data service.
Seattle, WA April 1, 2011 – OCENS, a leading provider of satellite data services for the maritime industry today announces the immediate availability of OCENS Mail 2.7 with Inmarsat Isatphone Pro GSPS data service support. OCENS Mail is a software application that keeps families and work groups in touch over satellite phone data services through email and web acceleration, one-touch blogging, and GPS vessel tracking, all optimized for use with satellite phone data service. In fact, OCENS Mail was used in the development of the IsatPhone data services.
“Email is more important than ever for doing business or staying in touch with friends and family when you’re on the water. Commercial fishermen and experienced cruisers know that narrowband data speeds are common in handheld satellite phones, but they want email service that’s reliable, affordable and easy-to-use,” said Mark Freeberg, President of OCENS. “OCENS Mail provides up to 15 times faster email transfers and up to 85% airtime savings compared with uncompressed Isatphone Pro data speeds, helping users stay in touch with the people and information that matters most.
OCENS Mail satellite phone email service includes:
• Individual or Enterprise level, multi-user editions for email access
• Automatic detection, setup and dialing of the Isatphone Pro for easy use
• Dropped satellite transfers automatically pick up where they left off, saving time
• Windows 7, Vista and XP compatible
• Works with any email program, web mail, or the included Mozilla Thunderbird and iScribe email clients. • Virus Scanning and Spam Filtering
• Full DES/PGP Encryption for optimum security.
Currently, the IsatPhone Pro supports only Microsoft Windows 7, Vista and XP both 32 and 64 bit. However, OCENS Mail itself is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux-based machines, and will support those platforms as they become available for use with the IsatPhone Pro.
OCENS Mail is designed specifically for narrowband satellite data services with handheld satellite phones like the Isatphone Pro, Iridium 9555 and Globalstar GSP-1700. It also increases data transfer speeds and lowers costs for broadband satellite services such as Inmarsat FleetBroadband, BGAN, Iridium OpenPort and VSAT services, or any IP-based data service.
OCENS Mail is available immediately at www.ocens.com and from select distributors.
