WHAT IS IRIDIUM CERTUS?
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 mobile satellite communications across maritime, IoT, aviation, land mobile, and government applications.
Iridium Certus enables voice and data services, including remote communications, personnel tracking, and over-the-horizon, beyond line-of-sight, and on-the-move communications at a range of speeds at your command.
The Global Iridium Network
Iridium’s unique, crosslinked mesh architecture creates a web of coverage encompassing 100% of the planet from Low Earth Orbit, providing low-latency, weather resilient services unlike any other satellite provider. No other network matches the reach, coverage, and reliability of Iridium – regardless of flight path. Iridium Network
Leveraging the power of Iridium’s global, L-band network, Iridium Certus redefines the capabilities of mobile satellite communications across maritime, IoT, aviation, land mobile, and government applications. Iridium Certus is ideal for supporting critical connectivity needs regardless of location, terrain, and weather events – all in a single platform.
Bringing you high quality services anywhere in the world at a range of speeds.
With speeds up to 704 Kbps*, Iridium Certus was designed as a flexible platform and will continue to evolve, providing both higher and lower data speeds to address customer needs.

Solutions ranging in size, weight, and power to meet your needs.
Iridium Certus services are provided through Iridium Connected® equipment to support broadband and midband voice and data capabilities for ships, vehicles, aircraft, and IoT devices. One terminal can deliver a range of services from multiple high-quality voice lines to the highest throughput L-band data speeds available, allowing simultaneous operations for business efficiency.
Versitility and Reliability Through One Platform
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 CertusSM, 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 speeds available, and even more on the way, Iridium Certus provides a reliable connection for voice and data services, including telephony, 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, directional terminals that rely on geostationary satellites.
Iridium Certus for aviation will deliver high-performance services from the cockpit to the cabin. Through small-form-factor, low-profile antennas, Iridium Certus will be ideal for aircraft operators looking to keep crew and passengers connected – supporting email, internet, voice and data communications, everywhere on the planet.
The Iridium network provides unmatched secure communications anywhere on the planet, including the polar regions. Iridium Certus will enable voice, data, and push-to-talk messages, remote communications, personnel tracking, and over-the-horizon, beyond line-of-sight, and on-the-move communications at a range of speeds at your command. Government and military customers will be able to rely on the secure, low-latency broadband connectivity of Iridium Certus through the dedicated U.S. Government gateway and controlled infrastructure
