The unique overlapping architecture of Iridium NEXT will provide availability, redundancy and reach no others can match. Unlike distant geostationary satellite networks that limit geographic use and are subject to service degradation in inclement weather, Iridium Certus℠ operates from a network of 66 low earth orbiting satellites that provide service anywhere on the planet, even in poor weather conditions, without compromise.

Iridium® stands alone as the only truly pole-to-pole satellite network. Through a crosslinked and overlapping “mesh” architecture, Iridium’s global coverage means that you are never out of reach, regardless of your location. Using this powerful network as the backbone for service, Iridium Certus℠ is poised to set the standard for remote communications and connectivity for enterprises, governments and individuals that want to extend their use of mobile networks into remote areas.

Today’s challenge

Trying to manage your satellite communications traffic is becoming increasingly difficult, particularly in today’s bring-your-own-device world. It’s not always possible to detect which devices are connecting to the satellite network, which applications they’re running, how much data they’re consuming and how frequently they are being updated. Existing traffic management solutions for satellite communications struggle to handle these challenges.

We are already seeing the benefits of running our satellite services through the INTEGRA network and can now identify the source of encrypted data being used on our vessels from any type of device, mobile, tablet or laptop.

Richard MarshallInternational Communications Manager, SEACOR Marine International

After witnessing the easy and quick installation of the Iridium Certus VesselLink terminal and monitoring the traffic of the crew thanks to INTEGRA, an exclusive service provided by AST, we have total confidence that the service is functional even in the most remote places of the polar latitudes. Its coverage at the poles is indispensable for the success of summer campaigns in Antarctica.

SV Rembrandt van Rijn is used for cruise expeditions in the polar regions. With up to 33 excited passengers on-board the vessel uses large amounts of data, with e-mails and photographs of local wildlife and scenery being sent home and posted on social media. During a recent upgrade of communications, Iridium Certus was of course the ideal choice, offering faster speeds and reliable coverage in these remote polar regions, enhancing their unique experience.

The Certus system was very easy to set up and use and provided a reliable internet connection in rough north sea weather. The crew found the WiFi very easy to connect too and use and could easily contact home over the busy Christmas period

If I wasn't using Iridium Certus Systems, my vehicle would be facing the opposite direction and I would be racing to get away from the Storm. I used IC and satellite phoned the mine to see if it had weathered the storm. I was heading to repair their rigs, I told them of my ETA and position and if I did not arrive I was confident a search would be deplored so having confidence in Iridium Certus I was able to proceed through the Dust Storm, do the job and carry on. Great Reliable System well done Iridium Certus! It makes my work in remote areas possible. Broderick W CO can innovate and repair Rigs in these areas with confidence.
