International Satellite Services’ Newest Product Turns Smartphones and Tablets into Satellite Phones

October 7, 2014 Tech No Comments Email Email

When people are working or exploring in the most remote parts of the world, it is important to stay connected to their loved ones. International Satellite Services, Inc., a leading global provider of portable satellite voice and data solutions, is promoting its newest product called the Iridium GO, a portable Wi-Fi device that converts any iOS or Android smartphone or tablet into a satellite phone.

A unique product unlike any other satellite data and voice technology on the market, Iridium GO is a rugged and compact Wi-Fi solution that provides satellite data and voice connectivity for smartphones and tablets. Even when users are in a remote location where Internet and cell phones do not work, they can use their iOS and Android devices to send photos, check email, send text messages, and make and receive calls from anywhere on earth.

“We are extremely excited about this technology,” said International Satellite Services spokesperson Matthew Durian. “For the first time in our industry, we have a product that will transform any smart iOS or Android device into a satellite phone for voice, text, and emailing capability no matter where you are on earth. It works in the air, on land, and at sea.”

The size and durability of the Iridium GO is one of its main selling points. Small enough to fit in a pocket, the device only measures 4.5 inches by 3.25 inches by 1.25 inches. The flip-up antenna initiates the battery power in the device, which automatically connects to the Iridium satellite network, establishing Wi-Fi connectivity with a 100-foot radius anywhere in the world. “It is so convenient, it’s like having your own personal cell tower,” said Durian. “Like our other portable satellite voice and data products, the Iridium GO is durable even in the harshest environments.”

Those interested in purchasing the Iridium GO can visit, contact International Satellite Services by email at sales(at)issi-us(dot)net or call the 24/7 sales and support at 888-511-3403 ext 203.
