The Iridium 9575 Extreme is the most advanced satellite phone currently available. Other features of the handset include a IP65 rating which means the 9575 Extreme is dust proof, shock resistant and jet water resistant. It is also the first handset to offer military-grade 810F durability. Another first for satellite phones is the introduction of Iridium AxcessPoint. This allows you to set up your Iridium 9575 Extreme as a Wi-Fi hotspot
Iridium’s most compact handset to date, Iridium Extreme is enhanced with more features than ever:
Satellite Voice Capability Using Iridium’s global satellite network, the Extreme 9575 allows you to make and receive phone calls anywhere in the world. The phone offers an integrated speakerphone and hands-free capability through a headset included as standard in our Extreme 9575 phone kit.
SMS and Email Messaging The Iridium 9575 Extreme is SMS and email enabled, allowing you to stay in touch and share experiences with others anywhere in the world. SMS and email messaging is limited to 160 characters and delivery/receipt is dependent on compatibility with local mobile network carriers.
Data Tethering Connect the Iridium 9575 Extreme to your laptop via USB cable to email, surf the web and stay connected using the only truly global communications network. Satellite phone data speeds are typically very slow so we recommend using the phone for basic data connections. We recommend using the RedPort Optimizer and our compression software, SpeedMail, to enhance your data connection experience.
SOS Emergency Button The Iridium Extreme 9575 is equipped with a programmable emergency button that activates critical, rapid response when you need it most. It is the only satellite phone currently available with emergency services supported by GEOS International Emergency Response Coordinating Center, included at no additional cost.
GPS Positioning The Iridium Extreme 9575 is equipped with Location Based Services (LBS) enabling GPS positioning. This allows you pinpoint and share your coordinates from anywhere on the globe.
Jet Water Resistant With a ruggedized IP65 rating, the highest of any satellite phone currently available, the Iridium Extreme 9575 is designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions. It is jet water resistant, shock resistant, dust proof and has a rugged antenna for unparalleled durability.
Online Tracking When used in conjunction with GTCTrack, GTC’s online advanced mapping portal, the Iridium 9575 Extreme offers a variety of advanced tracking functions such as a breadcrumb trails of historic movements, live view (position of last message transmitted) and exact location of SOS and emergency requests. These tracking functions are available with an additional subscription.
