Thursday, June 14, 2018 | Comments

A new company, EVERYWHERE Communications, launched to provide satellite and cellular connections for the millions of people and assets that require global connectivity for safety, security and productivity.

EVERYWHERE’s fully integrated dual-mode communications solution uses the newly launched Iridium NEXT satellite constellation and cellular networks to provide always-on connectivity everywhere on Earth, including the more than 90 percent of the world beyond the reach of land-based wireless coverage.

The company provides safety and productivity solutions for government, nongovernmental organizations (NGO) and enterprise customers in vertical markets such as oil and gas, mining, construction, aviation, marine, public safety and security. Services include global dual-mode communications through an intelligent routing platform, worker safety to comply with lone-worker laws being adopted in many countries, and global internet of things (IoT) offering end-to-end monitoring and management of machinery, equipment and physical assets.

“We provide vital communications links that will save lives, improve security and create productivity solutions on a global scale,” said Patrick Shay, the company’s founder and CEO. “Our solution is based on field-proven patented technology, and we have brought together a world-class team of professionals to bring it to market.”

The company’s leadership team consists of seasoned industry professionals, each with more than 30 years of experience, responsible for creating over $2 billion in connected services with companies including Motorola Solutions, Nextel Communications, Verizon, SiriusXM, Iridium, SkyBitz and DeLorme.

The lead investment partner in EVERYWHERE is Gemini Capital, founded by Dan Colussy, former chairman of Iridium Satellite. Colussy purchased Iridium out of bankruptcy and rebuilt it into a global and profitable business that now serves more than 1 million customers worldwide. Additional capital has come from other industry leaders and experts.

“EVERYWHERE has all the ingredients for success — a strong team with experience and extensive relationships in this business sector, proven patented technology and a compelling value proposition for an emerging market with enormous growth potential,” said Colussy.
