If our users move out of range of 5G and WiFi services, they can still connect via Iridium's global satellite network, which covers every corner of the planet, including the North and South Poles," said Tom Wang, North America CEO of Ubiqconn (RuggON's parent company). "On top of that, the Iridium Connected PX501 is ruggedized to withstand extreme temperatures, dust, rain, shocks, vibration, and more. It really offers extreme connectivity in extreme environments."
