TracPhone V-IP Series with Iridium Pilot BackupIridium Pilot for Pole-to-Pole Coverage

Small and easy to install, the Iridium Pilot is an economical complementary system for mini-VSAT Broadband SATCOM systems, providing pole-to-pole global coverage for data and voice.

With Iridium Pilot onboard and interfaced with a TracPhone VIP-series for least cost routing, the vessel's LAN and Wi-Fi networks will automatically switch from the onboard TracPhone satellite communications system and mini-VSAT Broadband service to Iridium Pilot (with Iridium OpenPort® service) when secondary service is needed and will return to mini-VSAT Broadband automatically when the service becomes available.
