Question #19 How do you get a cell call through the AMBE channel? Is it an internet VOIP call without using the service provider for the cell phone?

It is not a VOIP call. Your Wi-Fi equipped cellphone will see the Thrane & Thrane WAP and the WAP will assign a SIP address to your phone allowing a communication to the server which then converts the call to a AMBE-2 Inmarsat call. It’s transparent to you unless you just are interested with the technology happening behind the scenes.
