A common problem for people using a wireless system on the street today is that they find they cannot get good coverage into certain buildings. Most systems today are typically not designed for this. For example, many public safety state or municipal sys- tems are designed for good street and field cover- age, but not inside of buildings. Typical cellular tele- phone systems also suffer from poor coverage inside of buildings. Iridium, while providing global cover- age, will generally not provide in-building coverage.
