The SC4000 is well suited for all types of vessels from fishing boats to yachts and cruise liners. The system is also compatible with SSAS (Ship Security Alert System). TheSC4000 is compact and allows up to four handsets to operate.

Provide crew and passengers with their own calling plans or scratchcards so they can keep control of their own spend without the need for you to provide time consuming and expensive administration and individual billing –effectively allowing you to provide an on-board telephone box – users can, if desired, use their own sim cards.

As standard the SC4000 provides bandwith of 2.4kbp/s, this can be effectively increased to 10kbp/s by utilising Iridium's 10 kbps compressed data service.
