When it comes to needing dependable communication for efficient government operations, Iridium leads the way. With demonstrated performance at the state and local government levels, Iridium’s versatile range of devices operate in any type of environment or terrain. Iridium provides robust group communications that support interoperability with disparate agencies and extend the range of radios to the most remote areas of the world through real-time, two-way communication.
Iridium’s 66 low-earth orbiting satellites deliver reliable connectivity anywhere in the world, allowing government personnel to connect and coordinate between agencies, rescue organizations and suppliers of critical resources. Even if missions require personnel to operate off the grid in various settings, Iridium’s all-terrain devices help ensure that communication does not lapse in critical moments.
Iridium’s crosslinked mesh architecture creates a web of coverage encompassing the planet from Low-Earth Orbit, providing low-latency, weather resilient services unlike any other satellite provider. Because traffic is routed from satellite to satellite, communications on the Iridium network aren’t impacted by local ground infrastructure that may be down or compromised.
Iridium solutions augment and enhance existing communications by interoperating readily with existing devices. Land-Mobile radios can communicate with Iridium PTT radios, all with the push of a button, keeping you instantly connected with dispatch centers, team members, and other organizations anywhere in the world.
