Iridium Certus: the world’s first global broadband service

Iridium Certus Is the new advanced multi-service platform enabled by the upgraded Iridium constellation. Extending the reach of terrestrial and cellular infrastructure like never before, Iridium Certus redefines the capabilities of mobile satellite communications across maritime, IoT, aviation, land mobile, and government applications. With a portfolio of ever-expanding voice and data services, Iridium Certus allows enterprises, governments, and individuals to connect with greater value and greater reach than any other mobile wireless network. Iridium Certus is ideal for supporting critical connectivity needs regardless of location, terrain, and weather events – all in a single platform.

Iridium Certus simplifies satellite communications through a robust multi-service platform. One terminal can now deliver a range of services from multiple high-quality voice lines to the highest throughput L-band data connection available, allowing simultaneous operations for business efficiency. Services include:
• Background IP Data
• Streaming IP Data
• High Quality Voice
• Messaging
• Safety Services
• Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS)*
• Aeronautical Mobile Satellite Route Service (AMSRS)

For years, the maritime industry has been forced into long-term contracts and expensive service plans because due to limited options for satellite broadband connectivity. Now, with Iridium Certus, mariners can realize the truly global advantages of the Iridium network for business operations, safety services, IoT applications, and crew welfare. For the first time within the mobile satellite communications market, real choice and superior connectivity are available to the maritime community anywhere on the planet.

Iridium Certus extends the reach of terrestrial and cellular infrastructure like never before with truly mobile communications capabilities ideal for critical connectivity needs anywhere on the planet. With a range of data speed available and a robustly designed terminal, Iridium Certus provides a reliable connection for voice, data, satellite internet, Land Mobile Radio (LMR) and location-based applications. With Iridium Certus, customers can control costs by eliminating the need to deploy expensive ground-based infrastructure or large, expensive directional terminals that rely upon geostationary satellites.

Iridium Certus will deliver high-performance broadband service from cockpit to cabin. Through small-form factor, low-profile antennas, Iridium Certus is ideal for aircraft operators looking to keep crew and passengers connected – supporting email, internet, voice and data communications, everywhere on the planet.

Global businesses need access to global data. Iridium powers new innovation and opportunity in IoT through a unique combination of global network connectivity, industry-leading core-technology, and an ecosystem of technology partners. With new IoT solutions expected in 2019, Iridium Certus will provide reliable, high-speed data communications to maximize efficiencies and enable accessibility anywhere on the planet.
