Weather the Storm: 3 Advantages of the Iridium GO! exec

The 2023 severe-weather season is officially upon us. The Weather Company predicts 7 Atlantic hurricanes this year and Texas Standard notes that tornado season is “already off to an active start.” When disaster strikes, do you have the tools needed to ensure operational continuity?

The Iridium GO! exec from Blue Sky Network combines the portability of an Iridium satellite phone with the capabilities of a battery-powered smart device, such as a smartphone or laptop. Powered by Iridium Certus® 100 satellite service, it provides 2 high-quality voice lines and multiple data sessions to enable total connectivity in times of crisis.

Here are three key features to help you and your team stay connected throughout a severe-weather event.

The Iridium GO! exec with 3 key features

1. Ultra-portable design

At less than 3 pounds, this lightweight and compact device can operate from a fixed or mobile location with omni-directional connectivity, making it ideal for users needing communications on the go. The Iridium GO! exec is a rugged unit with an IP65 rating designed for the marine environment, so it can be used when rain and harsh weather are in the forecast.

2. Fast connectivity to vital comms & data

During a disaster, time is of the essence. Simply raise the antenna on the Iridium GO! exec to connect to secure WiFi via your smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Use popular and custom apps for select messaging, email, social media, weather, and light web browsing.

Easily communicate with your team by making calls either directly on the device with its built-in speakerphone and microphone or by wireless connection within range of up to 100 ft (30 m).

3. Extensive safety capabilities

Enhance personnel safety—no matter their location—with GPS, an extended battery lasting up to 24 hours, and 24/7 SOS monitoring and support. Quickly access these features on the device’s modern, color touchscreen.
