The Dakar Rally is an annual off-road automobile race, open to both amateur and professional entrants. In previous years, Cellhire has provided Iridium satellite phones for participants which include magnetic mounts for use inside their Rally support vehicles.
Iridium satellite phones ensure a connection where traditional networks fail to reach. In remote regions, where terrestrial or cellular network coverage is unreliable or unavailable, Cellhire’s satellite solutionsensure connectivity.
Iridiums are invaluable for communication between rally cars and support vehicles in the event of accidents or breakdowns.
Chris Power, Account Manager – comments “The Iridium satellite phone is an ideal solution for events such as the Dakar. They provide truly global reach and this plays a key role in ensuring the safety of participants, by ensuring they are contactable at all times.”
