It provides a reliable broadband Internet data connection as well as high-quality voice in one low-cost portable platform. Best of all, it has 100% pole-to-pole coverage keeping everyone connected anywhere on the globe.
Each Iridium Pilot ships with 2 phones (one Captain, and one Crew Phone) that can make or receive calls from anyone in the world. It also can support multiple computers on its Ethernet network. Simply turn the system on and all connected computers may access the Internet at up to 134 Kbps.
For ships large and small, the Iridium OpenPort broadband service offers highly reliable broadband voice and data communications priced to fit any budget. Connected to the world's largest and only truly global commercial communication network, providing pole-to-pole coverage for ships at sea, it works everywhere on the planet.
Iridium Pilot's three independent phone lines increase retention by helping you keep the crew happy - there's no need to line up to call. Flexible and affordable prepaid options allow calling even at peak times (calling prices are identical at all hours).
Since Iridium is 100% global, the Pilot happens to be the fastest way to connect to the Internet for those venturing into polar regions (134 Kbps). The system is designed for harsh frozen marine weather with operational temperatures of -22° to 158° F (-30° to +70° C)... so it's truly Polar Ready.
