Partnership with world leader in satellite communication vital to prepare for hurricane season
Philipsburg, On Tuesday June 19th Critical Communication Caribbean (C3) St. Maarten officially launched its partnership with Iridium; the leading satellite communications supplier. “This is a great milestone for C3, as the catastrophic hurricane Irma last year has shown us that communication is crucial in mission-critical situations and to ensure safety. It is our mission to guarantee the highest standards of continuity when it comes to mission-critical communication”, says Bert Schreuders, Managing Director of C3.
For the launch of Iridium, C3 invited Roberto Darias, Director of Business Development at Iridium to provide an expert session and live demo of the Push-To-Talk (PTT) solution to the guests.
The addition of Iridium solutions to the portfolio of C3 is the next step in creating ‘communication redundancy,’ especially in cases where all public communication is down or destroyed. The benefits of Iridium are that it offers low latency service, truly global coverage and network redundancy; satellites are always moving and there is availability of 9 in-orbit replacements.
Even though satellite phones have been known for many years, the diversity of services has broadened now, where C3 is mostly focusing on the PTT and data services via satellite. In moments where safety depends on communication C3’s customers need to communicate instantly to their teams, sometimes it is a matter of life and death; Iridium makes this possible in any situation, and wherever you are.
The hurricane season has already begun, and everyone wants to be prepared; therefore, C3’s partnership with Iridium comes at the right time.
