Energy and Utilities Operating With Iridium Communications


Optimize Your Operations and Manage Your Assets On a Global Scale

With operations scattered across the world and growing competition from a variety of alternative sources,
energy and utilities face increasing pressures to be more efficient, productive and profitable than ever before.

Iridium and its partners deliver reliable, high-performance solutions for global asset management, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), lone worker safety and remote communications — anywhere on the planet.

Exceptional Reach, Reliability and Return on Investment #

Iridium delivers key advantages for energy and utility operations around the globe — now and far into the future.

  • Reliable pole-to-pole satellite coverage
  • Cost-effective and easily integrated core technologies
  • Backup system solutions that remain unaffected by natural disasters


The Power to Make Better Informed Decisions

Having a complete picture of your transportation, distribution, and production equipment can be a challenge. Doing it on a global scale can be an even bigger one. With Iridium and its partners, energy and utility companies have access to the information they need, when they need it, to make the most informed decisions.

Keep Track of Equipment Around the World #

Companies who work with power lines, gas pipelines, water lines, valves and protection systems need access to real-time data and
communications in order to:

  • Monitor, automate and manage assets more efficiently
  • Optimize equipment use, maintenance and security
  • Reduce equipment failure and downtime
  • Improve productivity and resale value
  • Maximize and protect investments

Enabling Millions of Intelligent Data Conversations #

Iridium’s truly global Internet of Things (IoT) network enables an ecosystem of value-added partners to better monitoring and management of assets, energy grids, personnel deployments, and more — everywhere on Earth.


Taking Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems Further Than Ever Before #

Many utility and energy companies rely on SCADA systems to extend applications into regions outside of reliable terrestrial or cellular communications. Iridium and its partners help implement well planned SCADA systems, allowing organizations to deliver power reliably and safely, lower costs and achieve higher customer satisfaction.

Get the Information You Need, When and Where You Need It #

With technologies that can be incorporated into SCADA systems, Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) provides global, low-latency two-way service that provides the ideal solution for:

  • Tracking heavy machinery and other valuable assets
  • Monitoring flow, level, temperature, pressure and other conditions
  • Controlling field equipment, switches, relays, access and other devices

Reliable and Affordable Large Data Transfers

Iridium Circuit Switched Data (CSD) combines higher bandwidth than Short Burst Data (SBD)
with an IP interface to deliver improved data acquisition, remote monitoring, automation and control,
and reliable security operations in areas with no terrestrial dial-up connectivity.


Enhance Personal Safety and Response Times

Lone workers, particularly in unpopulated and hazardous areas, face heightened safety and communication challenges. Iridium’s Internet of Things (IoT) solutions help mitigate risk in any situation with location-based services, safety alerting, man down systems and low-latency, two-way communications capabilities around the globe.

The Most Powerful Handset Ever

Iridium Extreme combines market-leading toughness with an unmatched feature set including location awareness and a fully integrated SOS button with emergency response service — making it the ultimate emergency lifeline for isolated energy workers.

Lone Workers Can Now Use Their Personal Devices Anywhere

Paired with partner applications developed with lone workers in mind, Iridium GO!® creates the world’s only reliable global connection to provide voice and text messaging for smartphone users. In addition to GPS tracking, SOS alert and more — Iridium GO! provides data capabilities through optimized apps. No worries. Just connected, everywhere.


Connect Far Beyond the Limits of Traditional Networks

Only Iridium and its partners enable energy and utility companies to stay connected anywhere their operations take them. The largest coverage area and reliable products and services ensure connectivity, anywhere.

Deploy Global Operations at the Push of a Button

Iridium Extreme PTT is the world’s first ever truly global push-to-talk device. It combines fast, simple and secure group communications with the power of the toughest, most feature-rich PTT-enabled satellite phone on the market — in an instant, anywhere.
