Iridium Push-To-Talk - PHOTOS

Iridium PTT is radio complication with no limits on location no matter where your teams are located. No need to invest in infrastructure for a traditional UHF radio network... Iridium covers 100% of the globe for real-time push-to-talk communication.

Choose any of of the three types of PTT handsets or mix-and-match... Each have their own unique features (brochures linked in blue on each). The Iridium Extreme 9575 PTT offers both PTT service as well as standard satellite phone service, but not both at the same time. The ICOM IC-Sat100 handset is PTT only (no phone), is super rugged with an IP67 rating (underwater) with a MIL standard 810G and outstanding audio speaker qualities. The ICOM IC-SAT100M "M" version is for fixed installation inside of a building, vehicle or aircraft. The IC-SAT100M includes the external Iridium antenna and uses inexpensive Ethernet cable (Cat5e) for up to 100 meters from the handset/transceiver (or 400 meters using an internal LAN)... it also doesn't require a docking station, or expensive bulky antenna cables.

Iridium PTT requires no towers, has no dead zones, or infrastructure to build or maintain and offers the instant ability to modify service regions anywhere on the globe.  Iridium PTT supports unlimited number of handsets at $67/mo per handset and all transmissions are sent using AES-256 encryption which is one of the most secure encryptions standards available today. Your communications remain yours alone with Ground Control.


Iridium PTT Quick Features:
Communicate with a group of PTT radio-hansets at the touch of a button.
100% global coverage - more
Unlimited Push-To-Talk talk time - No per-minute costs.
Highly secure - All communication is AES-256 encrypted. Used by militaries worldwide.
Each PTT may be in up to 15 different Talkgroups or "channels".
PTT Command Portal is drag-and-drop easy for selecting which PTTs are in which Talkgroup.


Push to talk button
Ease Of Use
Operation of Iridium PTTs is as easy as pressing the push-to-talk button and then speaking into the handset mic. All PTT phones in the same "Talkgroup" will hear the speaker in under half a second.



Iridium Extreme PTT Satellite Phones

Iridium PTT (Push-To-Talk)
Any organization or professional may stay connected with other Iridium PTT handsets close by or on the other side of the planet at the touch of a button for $67 a month per handset with unlimited talktime. There is however a 40 second maximum talk-time for each time the PTT button is depressed.


ICOM IC-Sat100 Video



These Iridium PTT handsets easily handle any size group from search and rescue teams, to park rangers, to any organization that requires push-to-talk radio capabilities... no matter how rugged the environment or harshness of the weather. These radios are nearly indestructible and built to meet military reliability standards.

Iridium PTT - Two Phones   Iridium PTT - Military Use
The Iridium PTT radio-handsets communicate with one or many PTT handsets by pressing the "push-to-talk" button. Other PTTs in the selected and very private Talkgroup channel will hear you from any point on the globe. There are no "dead" zones using the Iridium global technology.
Two seconds after pressing the PTT button, all handsets assigned to the Talkgroup will hear the broadcast no matter their location. Since PTT communication is by satellite, there is no expensive infrastructure required such as installing radio towers.

PTT Talkgroups
A Talkgroup is a term used to describe a group of PTT handsets and where they may operate on the planet. A new account normally starts out with a few PTT handsets and a single Talkgroup. The subscriber uses the Iridium PTT Command Center portal and drag-and-drop their PTTs phones into that Talkgroup. They then define locations of operation in the planet where the handsets will operate. While the PTT service is 100% global, the actual service areas are limited by the size of Talkgroup drawn on a Google map (here is an example). A PTT subcriber has access to these functions and many more with the PTT Command Center Portal... changes are instant and worldwide.

Larger subscribers may have multiple Talkgroups (up to 15) and may have unlimited number of PTT handests. The Command Center is where the administrator places individual PTTs into the available Talkgroups. And handsets may be placed or removed in more than one Talkgroup... Ideal for working with smaller teams or taking converstations private on a different Talkgroup/channel.

Not to complicate things too much, there are 5 different kinds of Talkgroups, the only difference being the size of the service region... They are small, medium, large, extra-large and jumbo Talkgroups. The small Talkgroup has 100,000 square kilometers of service region available which may be divided into smaller regions and placed/drawn anywhere on the planet. Bottom line to know that pressing the PTT button on a PTT phone will communicate to all handsets in its Talkgroup.

To get a better visual understanding of how Talkgroups are actually used, please visit the Command Center Portal page.

Or if you have questions... and everyone does... please email us at sales@groundcontrol.com

In our opinion, what could be more cost effective than using a highly functional radio network (used by military organizations for years) that has no towers to maintain, operates on 100% of the globe, and can be rolled out immediately for a fraction of the cost of traditional radio systems?

Command Center Portal - Service Regions and Talkgroups Control
The Command Center Portal gives administrators a powerful tool to instantly assign PTT phones to a purchased Talkgroup and draw the service regions for that Talkgroup. PTT phones in a Talkgroup may instantly communicate with other PTT phone in all service regions of that Talkgroup. Service regions can be located anywhere on the globe and are implemented immediately. Here is more information on the Iridium PTT Command Center Portal.

A Talkgroup monthly subscription is based on total square kilometers (km2). A small Talkgroup = 100,000 km2.
A small Talkgroup may have up to 5 service regions before hitting the 100,000 km2 size limit.
Service regions may be drawn and located anywhere on the globe in the Command Center.
PTT phones (aka radios or handsets) are assigned to a Talkgroup in the Command Center.
Any number of PTT phones may be assigned to a Talkgroup.
PTT phones in a Talkgroup communicate with all PTT phones from ALL service regions of that Talkgroup.
