What is the Iridium Satellite Network?
The Iridium network has the largest communications satellite constellations in the world, and are one of the most trusted and reliable networks in the industry. Iridium’s satellites are known as Low-Earth Orbiting (LEO) because they continuously orbit the Earth. Each satellite follows a different path, crossing over the entire globe to ensure effective coverage.
Relative to us, these satellites move across the sky. This means that in mountainous terrain or urban centres, a LEO satellite system will greatly improve the possibility of receiving a signal on your satellite communications device.
