Iridium is an excellent choice for both phone and fax connectivity, but is also robust enough to provide limited data services through Short Burst Data (SBD) protocol.
Data can include sending/receiving email and SMS messages and supporting data link connectivity. Much like cellphones, Iridium units are programmed with removable SIM cards. ARINCDirect can provide worldwide service to all Iridium units that accept our SIM cards.
Cost-effective and reliable, Iridium’s voice and data services are ideal for business jet operators looking to provide their passengers with smartphone enabled air-to-ground voice, SMS, email, fax and low-speed data communications, providing global coverage, including the polar regions.
