Iridium

Iridium is the only satellite communications network that provides coverage everywhere on earth.  Due to restrictions on the use of Iridium in many countries, please check in advance if travelling abroad with an Iridium phone to ensure use of Iridium if authorized.


Iridium's 66 low-Earth orbiting (LEO) cross-linked satellites - the world's largest commercial constellation - operate as a fully meshed network that is supported by multiple in-orbit spares.


Reaching over oceans, through airways & across the Polar Regions, Iridium solutions are ideally suited for industries such as maritime, aviation, government/military, emergency/humanitarian services, mining, forestry, oil & gas, heavy equipment, transportation & utilities.
