Rent Iridium PTT Phones
Outfitter Satellite rents Iridium Extreme PTT phones for durations as short as 4 months. If you are not an existing Outfitter Satellite PTT client, there is a minimum of 5 phones required. Please contact us for a rental quote or more information.
Iridium PTT is used by organizations such as firefighters needing unlimited-use push-to-talk communications beyond the coverage of conventional land based radios. An Iridium PTT phone broadcasts to all the Iridium PTT phones within the same talk group. Service includes a single Small Talk Group and up to 15 talk groups can be added for additional fees. In most cases one Small Talk Group is enough because it is roughly the size of the state of Indiana and can be divided into 5 non-contiguous regions anywhere in the world except the Middle East. If you need to change the borders of your talk group, this can be done on-the-fly via a web portal.
Can you make conventional phone calls? Yes, the Iridium Extreme PTT can be used in telephony-mode to make phone calls, send/receive SMS messages and signal a personal emergency (SOS). Additional usage charges apply for telephony-mode services. Telephony-mode and PTT-mode cannot be used simultaneously but it only takes a few minutes for a user to switch modes.
