Next Generation WiFi Hotspot

When it comes to remote communication, whether you’re an aid worker at the scene of a humanitarian response mission, a lone-working scientific researcher, or simply an individual taking on the next biggest feat of human endeavour in one of the world’s most isolated regions, a reliable, portable, and fast means of wireless internet connectivity is critical. Enter: the Iridium GO! exec™.

Quality Voice Communication

The Iridium GO! exec is the first portable, touchscreen-enabled satellite access device for smart devices. It can be taken and used anywhere on earth, thanks to its ability to connect to Iridium’s 66 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. The device itself has been developed to combine the functionality of a battery-powered WiFi access point with the reliability and global coverage of an Iridium satellite phone. In fact, users can take and make calls directly from the Iridium GO! exec via its touchscreen and built-in, high-quality voice lines and speakerphone.

Direct Your Data

But making calls doesn’t even come close to covering what the Iridium GO! exec can do. It is so feature and application-rich that it has the option via the Connection Manager to funnel data to just a single app at a time so users don’t get a shock when their data bill comes in. And the list of pre-configured apps is extensive.

Pre-configured Apps

Users can start the GO! exec up from the middle of the outback and WhatsApp their friends, family, or colleagues. If Teams is more suited to the application, then that is an option too. In fact, WhatsApp and Teams are just the start. Other apps include Outlook, Gmail, Viber, Twitter, iMessage, Venmo, and Facetime, all of which are ideal for direct or group messaging and voice calls.

Up to 40x Faster

Using the Iridium remotely, especially where there is a constantly evolving environment, demands the need for quick load times and connectivity levels. This is another area where the Iridium GO! exec shines. Below are several contextualised examples and how it compares to the original Iridium GO! in terms of operative speed levels.
