Posted by Michelle Howard

Cobham SATCOM has unveiled its first Iridium Certus Connected terminal at Nor-Shipping 2017, the SAILOR 4300.

Due to go live in the first half of 2018, Iridium Certus is a new portfolio of global satellite services powered by Iridium NEXT, a second-generation L-band global satellite constellation established to deliver an uncompromising solution for the future of global maritime communications.

The SAILOR 4300 is a Broadband Core Transceiver (BCX) type terminal, offering a highly reliable link over the Iridium NEXT satellite network with speeds suitable for data-heavy applications including; videoconferencing, multi-user Internet/VPN, IoT and telemedicine, alongside regular usage including email, electronic forms/reporting and crew communication.

"The SAILOR 4300 for Iridium Certus is designed for users to get the most from Iridium's next generation services," said Casper Jensen, Senior Vice President, Cobham SATCOM. "It expands our extensive L-band antenna portfolio and complements SAILOR VSAT antennas, ensuring ship owners and service providers can choose the best performing, most reliable antenna systems for all of their needs, from a single, trusted supplier."

With the first customer shipment expected by the end of 2017, Cobham SATCOM's new Iridium Certus Connected terminal will be among the first available for operation on the Iridium NEXT constellation. Like Iridium's current satellite constellation, Iridium NEXT features a cross-linked Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) architecture, providing coverage over 100 percent of the earth's surface. Iridium Certus will guarantee high bandwidth connectivity as a primary channel or as an integral part of multi-band communication networks.

While delivering high-speed, global connectivity as a standalone terminal, SAILOR 4300 has also been designed for seamless integration with onboard communication networks, making it an ideal solution for VSAT service providers to provide a cost-effective, high-speed secondary/back-up communications channel. SAILOR 4300 provides this capability using a specially designed, easy to configure VSAT integrator 'smart box'.
