Iridium Products and Services

The Iridium System is a satellite-based, wireless personal communications network providing a robust suite of voice and  data services to virtually any destination anywhere on earth. The Iridium Satellite System enables remote communication solutions for vertical markets that include: Maritime, Construction, Aviation, Oil & Gas, Mining, Government, Leisure Travel, and Disaster Relief Organizations.

Iridium mobile handsets enable data connectivity with a variety of mobile computer equipment through a standard serial cable connection and a custom handset connector (custom connector sold as part of data kit).

The Iridium system is comprised of three principal components: the satellite network, the ground network and the Iridium subscriber products including phones and pagers. The design of the Iridium network allows voice and data communication to be routed virtually anywhere in the world. Voice calls and data transmissions are relayed from one satellite to another until they reach the satellite above the Iridium Subscriber Unit (handset) and the signal is relayed back to Earth.
