Why Is It Exciting?

Iridium Certus is sparking a revolution in mobile wireless communications. With over a million subscribers, Iridium continues to offer the best service and ongoing improvements for their customers. This new platform, powered by the NEXT constellation, will give users service unlike any other provider. The purposefully overlapping structure of NEXT gives users service anywhere on the planet. While distant geostationary satellite networks limit geographic use and are dependent on the weather for good service, Iridium Certus is powered by a network of 66 low earth orbiting satellites that provide service pole to pole. Iridium is currently in the process of completely upgrading their network, with 2/3 of the new satellites already launched by SpaceX and up and running. Iridium has invested $3 billion into this project to modernize their satellites and prove their position as a global communications industry leader. With the new satellites, Iridium will provide coverage anywhere on the globe with a range of speeds eventually reaching 1.4 Mbps. If you need data in remote areas of the world, Iridium is now equipped to help.
