October 27, 2021 – Intellian is pleased to announce that its innovative C700 Iridium Certus terminal has been approved for use in Japan. The C700 is the first Iridium Certus terminal to be approved for the Japanese maritime market. This is seen as a significant achievement particularly for the Japanese shipping sector, which was ranked the largest in the world by fleet value in 2020. Since its launch in late 2020, Intellian’s C700 Iridium Certus terminal has achieved excellent sales and received positive feedback from customers in multiple markets. An ideal VSAT companion for commercial vessels, the C700 delivers out-of-the-box uplink speeds of 352kbps and downlink speeds of 704kbps, with equally impressive low-elevation-angle RF efficiency thanks to its unique 12-patch phased array antenna technology. It will support three high-quality, low-latency phone lines simultaneously; and as a solid-state antenna with no moving parts inside, the C700 is especially robust, requiring no scheduled maintenance over its lifetime. Intellian’s C700 terminal is the most powerful, feature-rich L-band solution on the market. Light enough to be carried on board and installed by a single engineer, the system incorporates key features which include a firewall, IP PBX, WAN port and built-in Wi-Fi. Its stability and reliable connectivity also make it an ideal platform for future safety services, including the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).
