Who We Are
Iridium Technologies, Inc. is a pioneer in Telco Open-Channel Business, partnering with leading brands such as Apple, OPPO, RealMe, Huawei Laptop, and more, in developing their open-channel network in the Philippines.
Iridium started out with a vision that eventually, mobile communications would become a need in the country, a foresight that few had, back in the day. In 2008, it branched off from its parent company, a pioneer as well in the Telco and the IT industry. After its official launch in that same year, Iridium quickly rose to become one of the pioneers of mobile distribution and business in the Philippines.
The company started out by growing the Sony Ericsson brand nationwide by distributing its products to their partner retail stores, and eventually expanding their network to include other brands.
Throughout the years, it has amassed partnerships with various global, premium brands, such as Samsung, Blackberry, Transcend, Lenovo, OPPO, and RealMe. Experience in the technology industry has also resulted in Iridium’s venturing to develop their own brand, known as the Arc Mobile. Iridium is currently the sole distributor of Apple for iPhones in the Philippines, but the company carries other Apple products and accessories as well.
