If you expand into new regions, increase your volume of users, or need higher data speeds to support your applications, Iridium Certus℠ will scale with your enterprise to ensure you have the right solution at the right time.

Iridium Certus℠ is the new multi-service platform powered by the $3 billion Iridium NEXT constellation. With uncompromising coverage and a range of speeds eventually up to 1.4 Mbps, Iridium Certus℠ will deliver global, reliable, enterprise-grade services while redefining the capabilities of mobile satellite communications.

The unique overlapping architecture of Iridium NEXT will provide availability, redundancy and reach no others can match. Unlike distant geostationary satellite networks that limit geographic use and are subject to service degradation in inclement weather, Iridium Certus℠ operates from a network of 66 low earth orbiting satellites that provide service anywhere on the planet, even in poor weather conditions, without compromise.

Iridium® stands alone as the only truly pole-to-pole satellite network. Through a crosslinked and overlapping “mesh” architecture, Iridium’s global coverage means that you are never out of reach, regardless of your location. Using this powerful network as the backbone for service, Iridium Certus℠ is poised to set the standard for remote communications and connectivity for enterprises, governments and individuals that want to extend their use of mobile networks into remote areas.

Today’s challenge

Trying to manage your satellite communications traffic is becoming increasingly difficult, particularly in today’s bring-your-own-device world. It’s not always possible to detect which devices are connecting to the satellite network, which applications they’re running, how much data they’re consuming and how frequently they are being updated. Existing traffic management solutions for satellite communications struggle to handle these challenges.

INTEGRA is different

INTEGRA is a complete solution that delivers the first real-time application control for your satellite communications and the easiest on-board traffic management.


INTEGRA runs over a next-generation ground network that delivers reliable, end-to-end connectivity with multi-layered cybersecurity controls and optimised performance.
