Push-to-Talk. Evolved

Only Iridium can deliver push-to-talk the way it was meant to be – fast, simple, and adaptable to evolving situations with the power of Iridium’s global satellite network.

In PTT mode, your teams have access to unparalleled situation awareness and control features your users will expect with added capabilities including:

All on the world’s farthest reaching network enabling your teams to communicate instantly  where they need it without the expense and limitations of traditional ground-based towers and repeaters. Coverage areas, device security, and talkgroup conguration can all be adjusted over-the-air as needed by administrators using the Web-based Iridium Push-to-Talk (PTT) Command Center tool, simplifying support and maintenance of devices deployed in the eld.

Versatile accessories including shoulder-mounted carrying cases, docking stations and external antennas (sold separately) ensure critical communications can be maintained in any situation – on foot, in-vehicle or inside buildings.

Iridium is committed to extending your global communications reliability and performance far into the future. Your Iridium Extreme PTT devices are designed to be compatible with both the current Iridium® network and Iridium NEXT, Iridium’s ground-breaking next generation constellation of 66 interlinked, low-earth satellites, with launches scheduled beginning in 2015. We are committed to ensuring that the investments that you make today will continue to be supported on Iridium’s high-reliability, mission-critical network.
