Understanding Iridium's Satellite Network
The Iridium system is a satellite-based, wireless personal communications network providing a robust suite of voice and data features all over the globe. It is comprised of three principal components -- the satellite network, the ground network and the Iridium subscriber products, including phones and data modems.
The design of the Iridium network allows voice and data messages to be routed anywhere in the world. Voice and data calls are relayed from one satellite to another until they reach the satellite above the Iridium handset or terminal and the signal is relayed back to Earth. When an Iridium customer places a call from a handset or terminal, it connects to whatever satellite happens to be overhead, and is relayed among satellites around the globe to whatever satellite is above the appropriate Earth gateway, which downlinks the call and transfers it to the global public voice network or Internet so that it reaches the recipient.
The satellites are in a near-polar orbit at an altitude of 485 miles (780 km). The 66 active satellites fly in formation in six orbital planes, evenly spaced around the planet, each with 11 satellites equally spaced apart from each other in that orbital plane.
A single satellite completely circles the Earth once every 100 minutes, traveling at a rate of 16,832 miles per hour, and traveling from horizon to horizon across the sky in about ten minutes. As a satellite moves out of reach, the call is seamlessly handed over to the next satellite coming into view.
Since Iridium is a LEO satellite system, voice delays are typically unnoticeable. Other mobile satellite systems use Geostationary Earth Orbits (GEOs), which, by comparison, are about 22,300 miles above the equator. As a result, latency can be quite high, causing speakers to have to wait for each other to finish. GEOs are also largely ineffective in more northern or southern latitudes. The curvature of the Earth disrupts message transmission when attempted at the edge of a GEO satellite's footprint.
