Iridium Communications announced that KDDI, Navarino and NSSLGlobal are the newest Iridium Certus service providers for the maritime industry. Critical to the enablement of the digitalization of shipping, Iridium Certus will offer a superior L-band satellite broadband connectivity solution, making its service providers invaluable in delivering it to their customers around the world.

With higher speeds, small form factor terminals and competitive pricing options, Iridium Certus will offer a communications platform for all mariners and can serve as a primary service or very small aperture terminal (VSAT) companion solution.

As one of the largest connectivity and technology solutions providers in the maritime industry, Navarino brings its expertise and global reach to the Iridium Certus program. With a strong presence in the Asia-Pacific region, KDDI will help deliver Iridium Certus to the region’s mariners, in additional to its other customers around the world. NSSLGlobal said the Iridium service will act as a primary L-band service and a companion to its VSAT IP@SEA service.

“Every service provider is crucial to the success of Iridium Certus,” said Wouter Deknopper, vice president and general manager, maritime business at Iridium. “The addition of these three service providers not only ensures a smooth upcoming launch for Iridium Certus but also further validates the interest and broad demand for Iridium Certus in the marketplace.”

Commercial service availability for the service is planned for 2018.
