Caption: Iridium satellite phone being held in a hand. The Iridium network consists of 66 low-Earth orbit (LEO) communication satellites, launched from 1994 to 1996. They are designed to allow communications from anywhere on the surface of the Earth, without needing bulky antennae. They are also compatible with terrestrial cellular networks. This Kyocera receiver is being used in the Canadian Arctic.
