Iridium satellite service is designed to provide reliable voice and data communication links in locations where landline or mobile phone connections are unavailable, unreliable or overburdened.
Iridium’s constellation of 66 low-earth orbiting (LEO) satellites provides complete global coverage, including oceans, airways and even the extreme Polar Regions.
Commercial markets served include the maritime, aviation, emergency services, oil and gas, forestry, mining, journalism and other similar industries. Also defense and aid organizations and local and national governments all over the world use Iridium for their critical communication lines.
If you work, live or travel in areas outside cellular coverage or in areas with inadequate landline service, Iridium is your solution to stay in touch everywhere. Eighty -six percent of the world's landmass and all of its oceans are in areas with inadequate landline service. Iridium addresses these situations by providing coverage in all ocean areas, air routes and all landmasses - even the Poles.
Using your computer and an Iridium satellite phone, you can connect to the Internet or a corporate network from virtually anywhere in the world, allowing you to browse the web, send and receive email and transfer files over the Iridium constellation of 66 satellites.
As an Iridium voice subscriber, your phone performs double-duty as a voice communication and messaging device. The Iridium Satellite phone can send and receive up to 160 alphanumeric characters, in a single message.
Once you turn your phone on and register with the Iridium satellite network, your new messages will be sent directly to your handset.
