We are most excited about the new 9555 handset. Our clients demand smaller, more functional satellite phones and Iridium has come through for them.

GlobaFone, a leading provider of global cellular and satellite communications systems, celebrated the launch of the new Iridium 9555 handset. GlobaFone supports a diverse client base by providing an impressive portfolio of global communications solutions with a particular emphasis in the satellite segment.

GlobaFone CEO Lou Altman commented from the 2008 Iridium Partners Conference in Miami, "We are most excited about the new 9555 handset. Our clients demand smaller, more functional satellite phones and Iridium has come through for them." Iridium CEO and Chairman Matt Desch announced the launch of the new 9555 handset at the opening session of the Conference.

"The 9555 is yet another example of our continuing investment in our products, services and infrastructure," said Don Thoma, executive vice president, Marketing, Iridium. "In designing the 9555, we believe we have responded to our customers' needs. In addition to delivering this sleek new handset, we also are known for excellent network reliability, which is why we offer the Iridium Network Quality Guarantee."

"GlobaFone's great clients thrive from our great value proposition - they trust us to provide vital communications," Altman continued. "The 9555 handset is a new phone that will support our client's critical activities." GlobaFone clients include such organizations as FEMA, the MA Department of Public Health, Colgate Palmolive, Continental Airlines, Caterpillar and BAE Systems and others, many of whom may not be used in publicly available documents.

"The 9555 is, by far, the phone that first responders will want to have on hand for backup emergency communications in case of natural or man-made disasters," said Thoma. "Iridium phones are the only handsets that can be used in absolutely any location, in any condition, instead of cellular, landline or radio services that can become inoperable when towers go down or telecommunications infrastructure is compromised."

GlobaFone offers five brands of satellite communications and VSAT service as well as cell phones that work around the globe.
