IEC Telecom is thrilled to bring its customers the fastest L-band speeds in the industry with Iridium Certus® 700. Previous versions of Iridium Certus provided L-band speeds of upto 352 kbps. The latest upgrade has effectively doubled download speeds to 704 kbps. Moreover, Iridium Certus® 700 is available through a simple firmware update at no additional cost or new hardware to current Iridium Certus® 350 subscribers.

Iridium Certus® is the only broadband service that provides truly global coverage for on-the-move data and voice access in all weather conditions. The Iridium Certus® platform enables future enhancements for autonomous systems, remote sensors, and a new generation of satellite-based communications, and offers the flexibility to scale speeds, sizes, and power requirements for each customer.

It is delivered through Thales VesseLINK for the maritime industry, and with small form factor delivery, Iridium Certus® has seen increasing adoption as the primary ship communications solution or a VSAT companion service. Crew members on Iridium Certus® equipped vessels enjoy faster web surfing and stable use of social media applications regardless of poor weather.

In the land-mobile and vehicular market, Iridium Certus® is enabled over Thales MissionLINK and serves as the perfect tool for first responders, governments, and NGOs no matter where they are located. The terminal allows for easy switching between satellite and cellular connectivity links and ensures that communication is maintained even when terrestrial connectivity is unavailable.
