Iridium Advantage

As the world’s only truly global satellite network, Iridium is trusted by passenger vessels worldwide to ensure connectivity, safety, and efficiency. Unlike other providers, Iridium cuts through congestion and provides clear communication for users with small, solid-state terminals that avoid terrestrial interference and noise. Used as the primary connectivity solution at high latitudes or as a VSAT companion in well traversed areas, Iridium remains an unparalleled communications source, enabling vessels to operate safely and provide a first-class experience to passengers and crew.

Reliable, Global Coverage

With Iridium’s 66 crosslinked satellites orbiting the earth, users have a consistent bandwidth available on the vast ocean or in congested ports. Our network delivers highly reliable, global coverage, and our L-band services enable clear communications anywhere in the world, even in adverse weather conditions.

Solid-State Equipment

Iridium and Iridium Connected® solutions for passenger vessels are delivered through industry-leading terminal manufacturers with years of maritime communications and safety experience. With easy installations, vessels can experience weather-resilient connectivity with the fastest L-band speeds available from small, low-latency terminals.

Cost Effective

Iridium’s robust equipment and services require a low capital investment, meaning that smaller ships can utilize the global coverage that meets regulatory and passenger standards, and large ships can replace or enhance their systems while remaining cost-effective. With a low total cost of ownership (TCO), leisure ships remain within budget while enjoying all that Iridium’s services have to offer. With flexible service plans, users can choose and only pay for what solutions best fits their ship and passengers’ needs.
