In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the ways that Iridium, an industry leader in satellite phone and related technology, provides value. From their unmatched global coverage to the durability of their equipment compared to other providers, there are several reasons why Iridium is considered one of the top companies in this space.
And at International Satellite Services, we’re happy to partner with Iridium and their fantastic network, providing clients with the best coverage possible. What are some of the other qualities that give Iridium its stellar reputation, and why should you consider utilizing their products for your needs? Here’s a rundown.
We talked about Iridium’s global coverage in part one, but we wanted to dig into a closely-related area more deeply: Global reliability. Because Iridium has more satellites orbiting the earth at a low level than any other provider — 66, to be precise — they boast a network that is incredibly reliable, with fewer dropped calls and missed messages.
No matter where you are or what you’re doing, you can count on Iridium to keep you connected.
Device Availability and Compatibility
In addition, Iridium’s network is one that’s available and compatible with a variety of devices. Whether you’re looking for a rugged handset designed for the great outdoors or a more traditional phone to use in your office, Iridium has you covered. Plus, with their range of satellite internet options, you can connect to the web no matter where you are in the world.
In fact, one major benefit of Iridium products: With a simple connectivity device, such as the Bivy Stick or a few others, you can actually connect your smartphone into the Iridium network for use. This allows you to use many of the same smartphone programs, such as calls, texting and even GPS coordinates, that you’re used to, but without any of the usual cellular coverage problems.
This versatility and compatibility is something that has set Iridium apart for many years, and as technology advances, they continue to stay ahead of the curve.
In addition to their top-notch network and device availability, Iridium also offers a range of value-added services that can make your satellite experience even better. From fleet management to M2M connectivity, Iridium has a solution for almost any need.
Plus, their customer service is top notch, ensuring that you’re always taken care of even if there’s an issue with your equipment. They only partner with quality providers like our team, ensuring that you’re always in good hands.
