GLOBAL COVERAGE - IRIDIUM NETWORK
Iridium network is a system of 66 LEO (Low Earth Orbiting) active satellites covering the entire earth’s surface moving from pole to pole used for worldwide voice and data communication from hand-held satellite phones and other transceiver units. The Iridium network covers the whole Earth, including poles, oceans and airways. There are many coverage maps depicting the iridium satellite network, but ultimately the iridium network is the only completely true global network available.The design of the Iridium network allows voice and data messages to be routed anywhere in the world. Voice and data calls are relayed from one satellite to another until they reach the satellite above the Iridium handset or terminal and the signal is relayed back to Earth. When an Iridium customer places a call from a handset or terminal, it connects to whatever satellite happens to be overhead, and is relayed among satellites around the globe to whatever satellite is above the appropriate Earth gateway, which downlinks the call and transfers it to the global public voice network or Internet so that it reaches the recipient.
