Combining this with the Globe i4, which uses traditional Inmarsat or Iridium as a backup for VSAT, means customers have a fully redundant communications system.” Globe Wireless also provides customers with a full suite of IT and operational applications including GlobeWeather, GlobeForms, and Globe AntiVirus.
