Intellian terminal for Iridium Certus approved for use in Japan

Intellian has announced that its C700 Iridium Certus terminal has been approved for use in Japan, the first Iridium Certus terminal to be approved for the Japanese maritime market.

“We are delighted that our C700 terminal has been accepted for use in Japan,” said Eric Sung, CEO, Intellian Technologies.

“As one of the world’s top ship-owning nations, Japan remains a critical market for Intellian; one in which we have long-standing partnerships. It is testament to our collaboration with Iridium and product quality that the C700 is the first Iridium Certus solution to be approved.”

“Thanks to its best-in-class RF performance, robust design and unique 12-patch technology, we are confident that the C700 will prove a popular choice for Japanese ship owners, who value innovative and reliable technology.”

The C700 delivers uplink speeds of 352kbps and downlink speeds of 704kbps, using a 12-patch phased array antenna. The solid-state antenna, with no moving parts, also supports three phone lines simultaneously.

The system incorporates a firewall, IP PBX, WAN port and built-in Wi-Fi, and is Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) compliant.

“Our Iridium Certus service is leading the way in providing reliable, truly global connectivity to customers across all maritime markets, and we’re excited to bring this to Japanese customers in company with our partner Intellian,” said Wouter Deknopper, Vice President and General Manager of Maritime, Iridium.

“Whether used standalone or as a companion to VSAT, Iridium Certus and the C700 terminal are a great investment for vessel operators seeking a reliable voice and data communications solution which offers worldwide coverage and high resistance to atmospheric interference.”
