The World's largest constellation of telecommunications satellites for private use

Iridium Communications Inc., founded in 1990, is the mobile satellite communications company that offers global coverage of voice and data communications. Its system is based on a constellation of low-orbit satellites that guarantee the signal even at the Poles.

Iridium is always committed to maintaining stability and reliability of services in the daily management of mission-critical activities, through reliable and low-latency communication services.

The 66 satellites move on LEO (low orbit) Earth orbits and are interconnected. It is the largest commercial constellation for voice and data communications. The signal is transmitted from one satellite to another until it reaches another Iridium phone, or to the nearest ground station for calls to land phones.

In 2018, all Iridium NEXT satellites were launched to enable high quality broadband satellite communications

Intermatica is Iridium's reference Service Provider for Italy.
