Why the Iridium Certus 700 is best L-band service for maritime use?

L-band systems have long been the gold standard for maritime satellite connectivity, thanks to their incredibly resilient network of Low Earth Orbit satellites. Today, they remain a vital lifeline for maritime communications, ensuring you stay connected no matter where your journey takes you.

Offering the fastest L-band satellite speeds available, with download speeds up to 704 Kbps, the Iridium Certus network is well-suited for maritime applications requiring reliable broadband connectivity.


Despite the most common use-case for this service being used for backup connectivity, the service is designed to deliver a mobile office experience on ships and vessels at sea. It supports web browsing, email, file transfers, and up to 3 simultaneous high-quality voice lines for crew communications.


Enables connectivity for up to 12 devices simultaneously, making it suitable for all large vessels with multiple users.


Provides truly global coverage, reliability, and weather resiliency which are critical for maritime operations.


Provides a critical backup connection to other forms of satellite connectivity.


While Iridium Certus 100 and 200 may suffice for basic IoT/tracking and portable voice/data needs, Certus 700 emerges as the optimal solution for maritime vessels requiring high-bandwidth applications, multiple user support, and a mobile office/operations environment.
