High-Speed L-Band Anywhere on Earth: Iridium Certus® offers superior connectivity formaritime customers whether used as a standalone service or as a complement to VSAT services.
Product Diversity: Iridium Certus® offers a selection of service classes starting at 88Kbps and ranging up to 700Kbps, with eventual speeds to 1.4 Mbps.
Multi-Service: Iridium Certus® customers will enjoy three high-definition voice lines, highspeed IP data and streaming, packet data service (Iridium Short Burst Data®), and safety services in one robust marine-grade terminal.
Highest Availability: L-Band is the lowest frequency commonly available for maritime satellite communications, meaning that the Iridium® signal can penetrate clouds, fog, and rain better than higher frequency Ka- and Ku- band signals.
Sophisticated Network: The Iridium® constellation located in Low-Earth Orbit consists of six orbital planes with 11 satellites in each plane. Satellites provide connectivity as they fly “over” users anywhere on the planet.
Global Coverage: With coverage in the extreme latitudes and throughout the polar regions, Iridium provides a one-stop-shop for true global connectivity.
Rapid Routing: Iridium Certus® routes traffic in space, ensuring that all areas, including the polar A4 zones, benefit from low-latency, high-speed, and always-on connections.
Redundant Design: The sophisticated Iridium network is a fully-meshed global canopy with high-speed cross-links designed to deliver uniform coverage and data speed to every point on earth.
Solid Equipment: Iridium Certus® maritime terminals, designed and built by worldclass manufacturers, have no moving parts, making them reliable and lowmaintenance.
Robust Spectrum: Iridium’s L-band frequency is unaffected by weather conditions.
Iridium recognizes that the connectivity needs for IoT applications are as diverse as the missions they support. To provide maximum utility in the limited footprint available in many of these devices, Iridium platforms are designed to support a broad range of voice and data functions. No other satellite IoT connectivity solution delivers the versatility and value as Iridium.
