Iridium 9575 Key Features:

Satellite Voice Capability 

Using Iridium’s global satellite network, the 9575 Extreme 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 9575 Extreme 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.

With a ruggedized IP65 rating, the highest of any satellite phone currently available, the Iridium 9575 Extreme 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.
