Iridium Certus® 100

The Iridium Advantage

The unique architecture of the Iridium constellation provides inherent advantages in performance and reliability over other mobile satellite service providers.

Truly Global


Iridium’s network provides truly global coverage, from pole-to-pole and at any altitude, and minimizes line-of-sight issues

Iridium’s 66 cross-linked satellites with multiple overlapping spot beams provide reliable communications anywhere in the world

Midband Speeds

High Quality Voice

IP data speeds up to 22 Kbps transmit and 88 Kbps receive (based on existing technology; capable of supporting speeds up to 88 Kbps transmit / 88 Kbps receive)

Up to three (2) simultaneous high-quality voice lines

Weather Resiliency

Low Latency

Iridium’s L-band frequency is resilient to adverse weather

Iridium LEO constellation provides a shorter transmission path with less signal attenuation than GEO, resulting in faster connections
