Iridium NEXT: Expanding the Possibilities

Iridium is constantly finding new ways to expand possibilities, including their next-generation constellation, Iridium NEXT. Anticipated to be launched in 2015, Iridium NEXT will bring enhanced and entirely new services and capabilities to users. Voice services are provided via various handsets and installed communications systems onboard ships, aircraft and land-based vehicles. Iridium's short burst data (SBD) transceiver, incorporated into an ever-increasing number of applications, provides data connections to every corner of the Earth, transferring location information, weather reports, email, or any other data requiring a reliable, global, two-way connection. This latest service proactively addresses new and emerging markets, with its most rapidly expanding business segment as the machine-to-machine (M2M) market and the two-way, satellite-based location, tracking and messaging market. Iridium OpenPort provides complete voice and data coverage for ships at sea over the world’s largest and only complete global commercial satellite constellation.
