Voice and Data Satellite Communications
Iridium GO! ™ from McMurdo is a revolutionary, satellite-based solution, which delivers reliable global connectivity for both voice and data communications via your smartphone, tablet or PC/laptop. Create a satellite-backed Wi-Fi hotspot on your vessel and share connections for up to 5 devices. Iridium GO! offers voice calling via smartphone apps, data connection and text messaging all-in-one. And with Iridium’s first ever unlimited data plans, you can keep your satellite service cost under control. Iridium GO! fully integrates with PRISMA Connect, McMurdo’s Fleet Management software. Just connect your laptop or tablet with the PRISMA Connect application installed, and you are ready to go.
Designed for a multi-user environment, Iridium GO! from McMurdo can withstand inclement weather conditions (IP65 rated) and features an integrated SOS button with global response service (GEOS) along with integrated GPS location services. McMurdo also offers many accessory options such as external antennas and mounts (the unit typically installs very quickly) to complement your Iridium GO! system. For crew members who want to stay connected with family or friends while at sea, individual pre-paid crew cards are available without impacting corporate billing.
Easy to Use –Simply flip up the integrated antenna and the battery-powered unit connects quickly and automatically to the Iridium LEO satellite constellation to create a reliable Wi-Fi hotspot with a 100 foot (30 meter) radius. It’s like having your own global cell tower to connect anywhere in the world.
Easy to Install –Iridium GO! is portable, but can be easily mounted. With a stable, flat design, Iridium GO! can be installed in a vessel, vehicle, or aircraft in minutes. Or easily add an external antenna for improved Iridium reception.
Versatile –Iridium GO! supports a broad range of global communications including voice calls, e-mail with configurable sizing, two-way SMS, GPS tracking, emergency SOS alerts, photo transfer, online tracking, and other applications.
Rugged Design –Iridium GO! is built for harsh environments – small, durable, and able to withstand rain, sand, dust, and any other rough condition that might be encountered. Combining military-grade ruggedness with unmatched power, Iridium GO! ensures you can connect – even in the most challenging situations.
