As an official service provider, IEC Telecom is thrilled to announce the commercial availability of Iridium GMDSS through its extensive sales network as of May 2021. This incredible life-saving service has pole-to-pole coverage, offering new opportunities to all vessel types, from ice-breaking vessels navigating across the Northern Shipping Routes to small and mid-sized vessels in the Asia-Pacific market. Introduced in December 2020, Iridium GMDSS expands the scope of safety voice and distress alert operations, which were earlier limited to only one satellite technology provider.
Iridium GMDSS enables vessel owners to secure better working conditions for the crew with alert capabilities and voice services available through the LT-3100S terminal at the press of just one button. It is designed to operate under harsh weather conditions and offers a more cost-effective technology in comparison to market alternatives.
