Iridium's new global broadband service takes off

Iridium Communications Inc. launched its global broadband service Iridium Certus.

Iridium Certus, activated from the company's $3 billion Iridium NEXT satellite replacement program, will offer mobile internet and voice access, according to a Jan. 16 news release.

The service enables mobile office functionality for deployed teams and two-way remote communication for assets, autonomous vehicles, trains, aircraft and ships at sea. The initial service is aimed at maritime and terrestrial applications, with Iridium Certus aviation services expected later in 2019.

Iridium Certus is powered by the low-earth orbit Iridium satellite network, comprised of 66 cross-linked satellites.

Iridium is a mobile voice and data satellite communications company.
