The Iridium Certus Cobham Sailor 4300 is ready for Iridium's next-generation L-band satellite communications, delivering high-speed phone and Internet to the marine sector while keeping everyone safe and connected at sea.
Compact, Powerful, and Easy to Install
The Iridium Certus Cobham Sailor 4300 Iridium Connected terminal from Cobham is the pinnacle of L-band satcom performance and durability. It's small and straightforward to install. It ensures that your connection to the Iridium network is always active, allowing you to operate more safely, intelligently, and efficiently thanks to the power of always-on communication and digitally connected apps.
Iridium Certus is a new worldwide satellite service portfolio powered by Iridium NEXT, a ground-breaking second-generation L-band global satellite constellation designed to provide an uncompromising solution for the future of global maritime communications. The SAILOR 4300 is a Broadband Core Transceiver (BCX) type terminal with speeds suitable for data-intensive applications such as videoconferencing, multi-user Internet/VPN, IoT, and telemedicine, as well as regular usage such as email, electronic forms/reporting, and crew communication over the Iridium NEXT satellite network.
SAILOR 4300 has been built for smooth integration with onboard communication networks, making it a suitable solution for VSAT service providers to provide a cost-effective, high-speed secondary/backup communications channel. A specially designed, easy-to-configure VSAT integrator 'smart box' in the SAILOR 4300 gives this capabilities.
SAILOR 4300 connects to the Iridium network via high-bandwidth IP connectivity and three high-quality voice lines for global calling no matter where you are.
The SAILOR 4300 is built to resist the most extreme marine conditions. It is manufactured to such high quality that there is no regular service interval or maintenance for at least 10 years following installation, resulting in high reliability and minimal lifecycle costs. However, if something goes wrong, Cobham SATCOM's unique Global Service Network will help you get back online no matter where you are.

Certus Service Plans
IRIDIUM CERTUS SERVICE MARITIME PLAN DETAILS
Minimum contract period of 3 months on higher plans. $50 Activation Fee Applies To All New Iridium Certus SIM Card Activations.
*ETF = Early Termination Fee *DSG = Dynamic Sharing Group's enable users to pool their monthly plans together, sharing allowances. This is subject to terms and conditions. A DSG requires application via Apollo Satellite and Iridium and therefore advance notice is required for set-up. DSG's require 5 SIMS minimum. If a DSG is set up prior to 5 SIMs being added to it, there is a 3 month grace period before you are charged for the 5 minimum SIMs. DSG are subject to a 12 month minimum duration period. Should SIMs leave the DSG within the initial 12 month period, the minimum of 5 SIMs will continue to be charged. DSG plans are limited to one migration per month.

IRIDIUM SBD DELIVERY DESTINATIONS
This is where the SBD device should deliver its data. One destination is required and up to 5 are supported. Wildcard characters cannot be used. Examples of valid destinations for each delivery method are shown below:
184.108.40.206:10921 (NOTE: The port is required)
SBD Device IMEI
IRIDIUM SBD ADD-ONS
Message Delivery Point
$350 Per Year
Mobile Termination (Annual Charge)
$70.00 Per Year
Mobile Terminated SBD (MT-SBD) messages are sent to the Iridium Gateway via the Internet from a host computer system. The maximum length of a MO-SBD message is 1960 bytes. The maximum length of a MT-SBD message is 1890 bytes. Global network transmit latency for delivery of messages ranges from 5 seconds for messages of 70 bytes to approximately 20 seconds for maximum length messages. (Additional latency may occur across the Internet)
Mobile Termination Activation
Geo-Data is the last known location (latitude and longitude) of the device. When this option is enabled Geo-Data is included in the message content. By default it is enabled for all the delivery destinations. The SBD GEO data determined by the Iridium satellite network can be included with the message if you are not sending GPS data in the SBD message already. (accurate to about 15 miles)
The Iridium Gateway will send a 'Ring Alert' to the Transceiver when a Mobile Terminated SBD (MT-SBD) message has been queued at the Iridium SBD Gateway. Your mobile application can then decide whether to retrieve the MT-SBD data message at that time or later.
MO ACK - Mobile Originated Acknowledgement
MO ACK setting is used in conjunction with a Direct IP Delivery Destination. The default setting is off. When checked on, the Gateway expects to receive an acknowledgement from the receiving server that it has received the message. If the Gateway does not receive an acknowledgement, it will attempt to re-deliver the message for 12 hours. No other messages will be delivered to the receiving server until the first message is acknowledged.
Installed on my main vessel last quarter and was blown away by the service. I upgraded the rest of the fleet the beginning of this quarter before the season started. The upgrade was much needed, moreso than I originally thought. Everything including data has been overhauled and even the comms sound so much better. Highly recommend Apollo, they were more than helpful every step of the way!
