Iridium Satellite Phone - 9555 Handset
Small but fierce.

From distant rigs to pitching decks, baking deserts to frozen ice packs, the Iridium 9555 satellite phone can handle any environment. It is small but determined, sleek but industrial grade, easy to use but powerful. It is every bit as rugged as the Iridium 9505A handsets – still resistant to water, dust and shock – but streamlined and packed with innovative new features.

With Iridium's gap-free, pole-to-pole coverage over every square inch of the Earth's surface, the 9555 satellite phone is the ideal communications option for people who work in or travel to remote locations. With accessories and specialized products ranging from solar chargers to fleet tracking devices, you can be sure that your unique needs will be met.

The 9555 handset uses satellites instead of cell phone towers to send data and works anywhere in the world. It is slightly larger than a typical mobile phone, but still small enough for easy portability. Very simple to use, it features a familiar GSM dialing sequence. For outdoor use only.
