The new Iridium Extreme provides customers a single in-hand solution for voice, data, GPS, SOS, tracking and SMS - enabling them to make the connections that matter, under tough conditions, from the furthest reaches of the planet. Iridium Extreme is the smallest and lightest Iridium handset model ever released. It meets stringent U.S. Department of Defense Military Standard 810F for durability and is rich in capabilities, featuring the first dedicated two-way emergency SOS button on a satellite phone. And as with all Iridium phones, Iridium Extreme connects to the only truly global satellite network offering coverage absolutely everywhere.
European Datacomm (EDC), a service partner of Iridium Communications Inc., announced the launch of the new Iridium Extreme™ handset for availability to EDC customers. This new satellite phone is the most advanced, rugged handset on the market, with the ability to communicate the precise location of users across the globe.
