COMSAT offers Iridium Certus to US maritime users

COMSAT is offering Iridium Certus service to maritime users to improve connectivity and transmit sensitive information via the low earth orbit satellite communications network.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Certus through COMSAT offers high communications security and seamless global coverage. From a single network platform, maritime, aero, land-mobile, and IoT can be connected securely.

The augmented network provides extended terrestrial and cellular capability supporting high-value services to improve operational efficiency. The system is scalable and benefits from an overlapping  architecture to improve reliability and deliver powerful connectivity access from smaller, lighter devices.

Users of COMSAT’s Iridium Certus are supported by a 24/7 Network Operations Centre and customer care, managed by staff in the United States. 

COMSAT President David Greenhill, said: “Certus, accessed through COMSAT, offers much more than inherent Communications Security (ComSec) and seamless global coverage for military and enterprise customers. From the single network platform, we can now connect aero, land-mobile, IoT and maritime uses securely, and more cost effectively from anywhere in the world, including the extremities of the poles. This enhanced communication improves final mission critical success in dynamic environments and significantly enhances commercial opportunities.”

Customers will also have access to the COMSAT Zone, an online SIM card account management portal giving service providers the capability to activate/deactivate, manage, set up alerts and monitors for SIM cards. COMSAT IRIS also provides a secure portal enabling online government and commercial end users to manage their online accounts via real-time user account formation 24-hours a day.{/mprestriction}
