Satellite Network

Bivystick uses the Iridium® network powered by a uniquely sophisticated global constellation of 66 cross-linked Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. The Iridium® network provides high-quality voice and data connections over the planet’s entire surface, including across oceans, airways and polar regions. In space, each Iridium® satellite is linked to up to four others — two in the same orbital plane and one in each adjacent plane — creating a dynamic network that routes traffic among satellites to ensure global coverage, even when traditional local systems are unavailable.
