Iridium Communications

Iridium voice services are provided via various handsets and installed communications systems on ships, aircraft and land-based vehicles. Iridium's short burst data (SBD) transceiver, incorporated into an increasing number of applications, provides data connections to every corner of the earth, transferring location information, weather reports, email, or any other data requiring a reliable, global, two-way connection.

Iridium proactively addresses new and emerging markets, with its most rapidly expanding business segment as the machine-to-machine (M2M) market and the two-way, satellite-based location, tracking and messaging market. Iridium OpenPort® provides complete voice and data coverage for ships at sea over the world’s largest and only truly global commercial satellite constellation.
