we are pleased to launch the full service availability of Iridium Certus 700.
Iridium Certus is now the market’s fastest L-band satellite connectivity and represents the only satellite constellation that offers full global coverage on the smallest terminals.
To get to Certus 700, a simple firmware update is required per terminal. The firmware can be downloaded from Marlink.com (Downloads), which enables existing users on Iridium 350 to upgrade free-of-charge to Iridium 700.
Following the simple update, users can take advantage from higher download speeds of up to 704 Kbps for the same monthly price. Upload speeds remains the same, with up to 350 Kbps.
It is highly recommended that customers do not install this firmware over the Iridium Network to avoid additional airtime charges.
Iridium 350 terminals will be phased out and succeeded by the Iridium 700 from now on.
