Goa'uld long-range communication device

From The Stargate Omnipedia


A Goa'uld device allowing two-way communication over great distances, including across space. The device, when inactive, appears to be a polished gray or brown sphere. This technology comes in several different sizes, from a size considerably bigger than a beach ball to one that can fit in the palm of the hand.

The communications network accessed by the devices is not secure -- thus the Tok'ra resistance movement does not use it.
