Making connections anywhere to anyone or anything, there is no other network like Iridium.

The Iridium Advantage

Reliability Above All

Iridium’s crosslinked mesh architecture creates a web of coverage encompassing 100% of the planet from Low Earth Orbit, providing low-latency, weather resilient services unlike any other satellite provider. No other network matches the reach, coverage, and reliability of Iridium.

Low Earth Orbit

At only 780 kilometers from the Earth, Iridium’s LEO network means pole-to-pole coverage, shorter transmission paths, stronger signals, lower latency, and shorter registration time than with GEO satellites.

Ground Infrastructure

More than just a satellite company.

Iridium’s global constellation is supported by an extensive ground infrastructure that ensures the high reliability and capacity of the communications network through multiple layers of redundancy and back-up systems for all critical functions.

Interconnected by advanced fiber-optic and broadband satellite links, the Iridium ground infrastructure consists of the Satellite Network Operating Center (SNOC), Ground Stations, and Technical Support Center, which together provide terrestrial connections for mobile satellite voice and data; network command, control, and monitoring; and technical support.
