Why Choose Iridium?
Iridium’s network is built for mobility providing connectivity and communications on the move, allowing ships, vehicles, aircraft, and personnel to remain in contact while serving anywhere in the world.
Iridium Certus is a multi-service platform providing users the ability to maintain simultaneous access to:
- High Quality Voice
- Midband and Broadband Data
- Tracking and Monitoring
- Other over the top (OTT) services across Iridium Certus terminals.
Unlike distant Geostationary satellite networks that limit geographic use and experience service degradation during inclement weather, Iridium Certus operates through the truly global, reliable, and weather-resilient L-band based Iridium network comprised of 66 Low-Earth Orbit satellites.
Iridium Certus™ terminals utilize antennas with stationary internal components providing enhanced reliability and a lower profile design to enable new applications for satellite services. Unlike Geostationary terminals that require complex and expensive steerable antennas or manual pointing to connect, Iridium terminals feature omni-directional antennas that automatically connect with the closest Iridium satellite wherever positioned in the sky, simplifying the set-up and use of these terminals.
