Affordable Satellite Broadband Terminal
We’ve crunched the numbers, and Iridium Pilot / OpenPort service is at least ten times less expensive than a handheld satellite phone like Iridium 9555 or 9575. Iridium OpenPort’s service plans replace per-minute pricing with more cost-effective per-megabyte rates.
Although the hardware costs more at the outset (roughly $1500 more than a similar setup with a handheld), the savings in airtime and data far outstrip what you would pay for similar service with a handheld, leading to substantial long-term savings for a much better quality of service.
Iridium Pilot Satellite Broadband Data Service
Powered by Iridium OpenPort Broadband System, Iridium Pilot offers up to 134kbps data services, letting you connect to email almost instantly, and access the web quickly. For ships large and small, Iridium Pilot is priced to fit any budget.
Iridium Pilot utilizes true IP technology to provide a flexible and powerful array of data services. A single Ethernet port provides a connection to a standard computer, an Ethernet router, or Wi-Fi router like the RedPort Optimizer. Choose from a range of configurable data rates to meet your specific requirements. Engineered for simultaneous functionality, data and phone ports support high-volume usage.
