Iridium Extreme Sat Phone is the most advanced satellite phone currently available. Other features of the handset include an IP65 rating which means the Extreme® is dust proof, shock resistant and jet water resistant. It is also the first handset to offer military-grade 810F durability. Another first for satellite phones is the introduction of Iridium AxcessPoint. This allows you to set up your The Iridium Extreme® as a Wi-Fi hotspot
How can a vessel owner be sure Iridium equipment satisfies regulatory requirements?
Iridium has obtained Recognition from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and a Letter of Compliance from IMO’s regulator, the International Mobile Satellite Organization (IMSO). As always, vessel owners are ultimately responsible for working with their flag administration and Port State Authorities on all compliance questions.
Iridium Extreme® Key Features:
Satellite Voice Capability
Using Iridium’s global satellite network, the Extreme® allows you to make and receive phone calls anywhere in the world. The phone offers an integrated speakerphone and hands-free capability through a headset included as standard in our Extreme® phone kit.
SMS and Email Messaging
The Iridium Extreme® is SMS and email enabled, allowing you to stay in touch and share experiences with others anywhere in the world. SMS and email messaging is limited to 160 characters and delivery/receipt is dependent on compatibility with local mobile network carriers.
Although low-speed data is possible we only advise and support connections using the RedPort Optimizer in tandem with the XGate Satellite Phone Email & Data Services. Both of these tools enhance your data connection making the most of the speed available. Any connections attempted without these solutions may appear to work, and potentially use airtime, but may not provide the expected service.
SOS Emergency Button
The Iridium Extreme®Satellite Phone has a programmable emergency button that activates critical, rapid response when you need it most. It is the only satellite phone currently available with emergency services supported by GEOS International Emergency Response Coordinating Center, included at no additional cost.
The Iridium Extreme Sat Phone is equipped with Location Based Services (LBS) enabling GPS positioning. This allows you pinpoint and share your coordinates from anywhere on the globe.
Jet Water Resistant
With a ruggedized IP65 rating, the highest of any satellite phone currently available, the Iridium Extreme Sat Phone is designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions. It is jet water resistant, shock resistant, dust proof and has a rugged antenna for unparalleled durability.
When used in conjunction with GTCTrack, GTC’s online advanced mapping portal, the Iridium Extreme® offers a variety of advanced tracking functions such as a breadcrumb trails of historic movements, live view (position of last message transmitted) and exact location of SOS and emergency requests. These tracking functions are available with an additional subscription.
Not all mobile networks allow you to send text messages to satellite phones and as a result text messaging can be unreliable. Please check with your provider or contact us for further information.
