With the Iridium GO Exec, Iridium Communications has introduced the most powerful, ultra-portable solution for bringing Personal Off-the-Grid Connectivity to all smartphones, tablets, and laptops. The Iridium GO Exec, designed for business usage but created for everyone, offers a natural extension of your world off-the-grid for email sending and receiving, using chat or office programs, making phone calls, sharing images, posting to social media, or getting assistance in an emergency. The Iridium GO Exec is built on Iridium Certus technology and offers better data rates at a size, weight, power, and price unheard of in the satellite business, building on the success of the original Iridium GO, released in 2014. “When we launched the Iridium GO! nine years ago, our vision was to allow anyone with a smartphone to stay connected when they were off the grid,” said Iridium CEO Matt Desch. “We’ve now turbocharged that capability with the Iridium GO exec. There’s nothing like this device for businesses, governments or consumers that want to stay productive beyond terrestrial coverage.”
The Iridium GO Exec, which is packed with new functions, may operate as a stand-alone device to make calls using a speakerphone or to place an SOS call if the user’s smart smartphone runs out of power. It integrates with widely used chat, email, and other native programs that users are familiar with. It has a powerful battery that allows for prolonged operation while traveling and can even be used as a power bank to directly charge a smartphone or tablet via a separate USB-C power output. Also, the device has an application manager that makes it simple to have the best experience possible by letting you select the apps you wish to use, prioritize their connections, and set time and data limitations to assist individuals and businesses remain within their budgets. Using an Iridium-provided API, custom applications may also be created for the Iridium GO! exec; developers are already working on Iridium GO Exec versions of numerous popular Iridium GO user apps. Further accessories are anticipated to be made available in the upcoming months, including a fixed-install kit and external antenna for boats and distant areas.
