The Iridium satellite system consists of 66 cross-linked, low earth orbit satellites that constantly circle the globe. The Iridium constellation is unique in that it covers the entire surface of the planet, including poles, oceans and airways.

It is the only truly global communication satellite system.

Practical Solutions
Mackay has a variety of practical, simple and cost effective technologies for keeping you connected.

The satellite phone is a simple and cost effect method for you and your team to stay in touch. It is as easy to use as a cell phone, provides voice, voicemail and texting capabilities. The latest technology allows you to interface with your smart phone, laptop or tablet to send and receive email. It is light weight, rugged and easy to carry with you anywhere you go.

Office on the go
Or maybe you need to set up a portable office with voice and high-speed data capabilities for one or more people. Whether you are traveling to a remote job site or to a location where other services are temporarily unavailable, a small yet very powerful BGAN terminal could be the answer. Turn it on, plug in your computer and phone, and you are up and running.

Command and control
If your needs are more along the lines of a permanent or semi-permanent onsite communication structure, we have a solution to fit your needs. Fixed Satellite Comm terminals give you voice and email in a low-cost package. A satellite phone in a docking station will give you the same voice and e-mail functions with the grab and go convenience of the phone. If you need high-speed data services a BGAN terminal offers phone and true broadband service in an affordable package.

Emergency Response/Responders
In the hours, days, and weeks following a major disaster, satellites provided the basic ‘operability’ that failed terrestrial networks cannot provide. Mobility, reliability and ease of use are essential for effective communications. Mobile to mobile, mobile to fixed, and fixed to fixed are all part of the emergency response equation. Handhelds, vehicle mounted or fixed units provide voice, data, and broadband for your command center on the ground or your vehicles in route at 60 mph. Independent of terrestrial infrastructure, satellite communication has no range limitations with truly globally service.

Business Continuity
Without communications your business is out of business, which is why satellite communications should be a part of any business continuity plan. Satellite phones provide key executives the means to stay in touch with voice and email connectivity. Fixed Satellite Comm units can be integrated into the office PBX providing voice path diversity. SMS messaging and satellite voice mail provide notifications and updates to your customers, employees and management. High-speed data terminals provide public or point to point connectivity to keep critical data flowing.

Marine Communications
Offshore communications on vessels requires specialized solutions adapted to the harsh environment and to the unique mission parameters of the vessel. Supply boats, workboats, exploration vessels, Towboats or tankers, all require highly reliable and cost effective connectivity. System redundancy and multiple solutions are essential. Voice communication and data connectivity for navigation, weather or crew conveniences; as a backup of primary systems; data and video for operational monitoring, measuring and assessment above and below the waterline; can all be accomplished within the Mackay package. From simple handheld units to marine certified stabilized antennas and below deck equipment,

Mackay can provide the solution
No matter what your needs, fixed or mobile, voice or high-speed data, on land or sea, we listen to you and tailor a solution to fit your needs. Explore our website to see some of the options that are available or contact us and let our experts help put the right solution together for you.
