Iridium expands land-mobile distribution partnerships

COMSAT Inc., Gilat Telecom, Globecomm, MetOcean Telematics, NSSLGlobal, Trace Systems and Wireless Innovation, have officially been added as Iridium CertusSM service providers for land-mobile applications. Iridium Certus will bring a full suite of services enabling the first truly globally connected vehicles when used with the Thales MissionLINKTM terminal. Each of these new Iridium Certus service providers will play a crucial role in distributing the next-generation service to their unique customer networks. The addition of these seven companies brings the total number of service providers for land-mobile applications to 20.

“Each service provider is invaluable to the success of Iridium Certus,” said Josh Miner, vice president, land-mobile business, Iridium. “Having an expansive distribution network is at the core of our business strategy and helps us directly address the need for reliable connectivity anywhere on the planet. We recognize that businesses are expanding operations to the most remote and rugged locations on earth, and with Iridium Certus, there will be greater speed capability with the same resilience and dependability the Iridium network is known for.” Miner continued, “Not only will the service work across the globe, but the hardware is small and able to withstand harsh conditions, making it a very competitive option for today’s ever-expanding market.”
