Benefits of Iridium's Low-Earth Orbit Network

Iridium Edge® inherits the many benefits of Iridium's Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) network.

  • 100 percent truly global coverage from pole-to-pole
  • Provides a stronger, more robust satellite signal compared to GEO constellations
  • Shorter transmission path of LEO network results in lower latency and shorter registration time
  • Greater flexibility in installation
  • Improved line of sight over GEO systems in compromised locations or behind large obstructions
  • Overlapping satellite coverage and crosslinks provide redundancy and increased reliability
