The service, which is now enhanced by IEC Telecom’s range of value-added solutions, will deliver competitively priced, high-performing, global satellite coverage supporting many important functions including, business operations, IoT applications, crew welfare and critical safety operations.

“We are delighted to be able to offer customers our value-added services on top of one of the most innovative platforms with the greatest coverage,” said Nabil Ben Soussia, vice president maritime at IEC Telecom.

“Iridium is a trusted provider of maritime satellite communications for business operations, safety services, IoT applications, and crew welfare. We are excited to offer this global solution to vessel owners, operators and managers across all maritime sectors and geographies,” he added.

Wouter Deknopper, vice president & general manager, maritime line of business at Iridium, said: “We are happy to sign this partnership with IEC Telecom which will boost our maritime communications distribution in Europe, particularly in Scandinavia, the Caspian Sea and Middle East. We look forward to providing our second-generation of innovation through IEC’s global presence and expertise.”{/mprestriction}
