Pivotel - Mobile Everywhere

Pivotel is proud to be supporting Dr Geoff Wilson on his latest polar expedition as he embarks on a three-month journey across Antarctica, one of the harshest environments on the planet.

Geoff is attempting to complete the longest solo journey ever made by a human in a polar region by traversing alone and unassisted across 5,800km.

No stranger to the challenges of extreme environments and the vital role satellite communication plays during an exploration, Geoff has partnered with mobile satellite solutions provider Pivotel to ensure he stays connected with his operations team and loved ones throughout the three-month journey.  

The equipment provided by Pivotel includes Iridium Extreme satellite phones and an Iridium Certus MissionLINK data terminal. These devices will allow Geoff to send through updates, images and videos of his exploits, as well as giving him a critical line of communication to search and rescue should he need it.

Pivotel supports individuals and businesses operating in some of the world’s most remote locations with communication solutions that allow users to carry out the most extreme tasks as safely, productively and efficiently as possible.

The team at Pivotel wishes Dr Geoff Wilson all the best for a successful expedition.
