Iridium is a sophisticated satellite constellation comprising 66 cross-linked Low-Earth Orbit satellites that provide superior voice and broadband connectivity spanning the planet’s surface including the poles, airways and oceans. In early 2019, Iridium replaced its satellites and upgraded its ground infrastructure to deliver innovative and reliable satellite communications.

The LEO satellite network orbits the Earth at 780 kilometers for quicker transmission paths that provide stronger signals and lower latency compared to geostationary satellites that are much higher up. Iridium’s dynamic network is unsurpassed while offering high-performance satellite phones and terminals for consumers to access satellite communications.

Iridium has an extensive range of handheld devices, like satellite phones and several different Internet terminals. Telephones have relentlessly evolved over the decades from landlines to mobile phones to smart devices, and now satellite phones are increasingly available to consumers at affordable prices. While sat phones have been around for a long time, they aren’t the brick-sized devices they used to be while providing seamless connectivity from any location around the globe.

External Sat Phone Antennas

Iridium satellite phone antennas are the bridge where ground-based networks are unreliable or non-existent because these mobile devices communicate with satellites orbiting the Earth. However, in some cases, you may need a bit of assistance to enhance the transmission of satellite communication modems and phones by using an Iridium satellite phone external antenna. Easy to install and use, external antennas are robust accessories for better performance when required.

Iridium Phone Antennas

Canada Satellite offers an assortment of antennas and accessories designed and configured for the Iridium frequency. The Iridium 9555 antenna adapter is a cradle that lets you connect your Iridium 9555 satellite phone to an external antenna cable that comes in different lengths such as a 10-, 15- or 20-meter cable.

The Iridium 9505a antenna and Iridium 9575 antenna are also available for the specific Iridium handsets that help improve satellite signals in isolated regions. Replacement antennas can be purchased separately for the Iridium 9505 and 9505A handsets where the existing antennas have been broken or damaged. This is very useful where purchasing a new handset isn’t necessary.

External magnet mounted antennas are also available for various Iridium phones and docking station systems to boost performance and accuracy during critical operations. Additionally, the AeroAntenna range lets you mount an external antenna to a vehicle or other structure to deliver exceptional reception performance for indoor or outdoor use.

Beam Antennas

Beam Communications are manufacturers of Iridium antennas for vehicular, land or maritime connectivity where you need long cable runs from the antenna location and Iridium satellite terminals. WHIP antennas are also available from Beam, which is a cost-effective solution to hook up an Iridium or GPS device for boosted performance over a distance of 20 meters. External Beam antennas come with pole and mast mounting using adhesive pads or magnets.

Beam also provides bolt mounted antennas suitable for fixed site locations to enhance satellite connectivity for most Iridium devices.
