Faster Data

Iridium OpenPort utilizes true IP technology to provide a flexible and powerful array of data services. A single Ethernet port provides a connection to a standard PC or to a router or hub for multiple PCs. 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. Iridium OpenPort’s simplified service plans replace expensive and wasteful per-minute pricing with more cost-effective per-megabyte rates.

Less Expensive

With its small footprint and light weight, the Iridium OpenPort omni-directional antenna array does not require a stabilization platform and is virtually maintenance-free. It can be mounted in any convenient location on deck for quick, easy and inexpensive installation. The lower capital expenditure and airtime costs add up to a faster return on investment.

A Solid Return on Investment

Users will quickly reap the benefits of Iridium OpenPort. Multiple phone lines allow for simultaneous captain and crew use while email and data files are being transmitted. Affordable, easy-to-install equipment provides a smooth upgrade path. Truly global coverage unleashes power and availability to any point on the planet.
