Iridium is the first truly global satellite network for telecommunications. Its 66 cross-linked low earth orbit satellites form a worldwide grid only 780 km (485 miles) above earth.


Iridium OpenPort delivers up to three phone lines for simultaneous use and features always-on data with speeds up to 128 kbps - on an all-IP backbone. The Iridium Pilot omni-directional antenna array does not require a stabilization platform and is virtually maintenance-free.


Iridium Certus is the new service platform powered by the Iridium NEXT constellation. With uncompromising coverage and a range of speeds eventually up to 1.4 Mbps, Iridium Certus will deliver global, reliable, enterprise-grade services while redefining the capabilities of mobile satellite communications. Iridium’s groundbreaking second-generation satellite NEXT constellation and services are expected to be commercially available in 2018.
