You can now connect your smartphone or tablet to the Iridium satellite network with the Iridium GO!. The Iridium GO! is a one of a kind satellite Wi-Fi hotspot that allows users who own an iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ smart device to utilize satellite voice and data communications within Australia, or anywhere else in the world. All you need to do is download the free apps and off you go.
Powered by the Iridium global satellite network, the Iridium GO! is a compact, rugged and portable device that creates a satellite-backed Wi-Fi hotspot, connecting up to 5 mobile devices such as your iPhone, iPad or Android smart device.
How it Works
You can now connect anywhere on Earth, even in places where you think it’s impossible to get a normal mobile connection, so long as the Iridium GO! unit has clear line of sight to the satellites. It’s as easy as connecting your smartphone or tablet with the GO! unit.
Simply flip up the integrated antenna and the battery-powered unit connects quickly and automatically to the Iridium LEO satellite constellation to create an anywhere satellite Wi-Fi hotspot within approximately a 30 meter (100 foot) radius.
Iridium GO! supports a full range of global communications, including:
• Voice Calls
• Text Based Email Access
• Data speeds: 2.4kps
• Customized Third-Party Apps
• Send Twitter Posts
• SMS Two-Way
• SOS Alert
• Send a Quick GPS or Check-in Message
The Iridium GO! is small enough to fit in your pocket, and like other Iridium devices, tough enough to withstand rain, sand, dust and rough use. It can easily be:
• Carried or stowed in your backpack, or
• Mounted in vehicles, aircraft and boats for mobile applications
Combining the best that both satellite and cellular phones offer, Iridium Go! is the first in a whole new category of personal satellite connectivity devices. It is also a powerful development platform optimized for Iridium partners to build applications.
Compatible with iPhone, iPad and Android operating systems and supported by affordable plans that keep voice and data costs reasonable, the Iridium GO!
