Specially designed for the professional market and built to withstand rough sea environments, the LT-3100 satellite communications system is a maritime xed satellite phone that is ideal for fishing and sailing vessels.

“It is a small and neat product which is ideal for installation on smaller vessels,” explained Mr Mauritz. “We are already fitting it to fishing and sailing vessels and are excited to be officially unveiling it at BlueFish as part of our comprehensive communications portfolio.”

IEC Telecom is a partner of Iridium and able to supply satcom solutions using the range of Iridium services, including the new truly-global Iridium CertusSM network.

Requiring no yearly maintenance thanks to a built-in webserver, the LT-3100 system provides voice, data, SMS, vessel tracking, and more services from Iridium at competitive airtime charges. With a high-performance GNSS/GPS receiver, the LT-3100 is the perfect communications system especially suitable for deep sea, fishing and workboats.

Alesund has long been renowned as the fishing capital of the Norwegian region and, with IEC’s strong commitment to the Scandinavian fishing industry, is the perfect setting to announce this important new partnership. Visit us on stand number 921.
