Thales VesseLINK 200


The VesseLINK 200 is a highly versatile terminal that delivers basic internet use, voice communications, and tracking / IoT applications from anywhere on the globe. Suitable for ships or fleets of any size, it can integrate with your existing equipment to fully digitize your vessel. The highly compact and lightweight antenna makes the device ideal for leisure yachts, fishing vessels, autonomous watercraft, and all manner of workboats.


Uninterrupted pole-to-pole coverage for ships and fleets

The VesseLINK 200 is a great all-rounder for ships and fleets, providing basic internet access, voice and text communication, plus support for connected ship applications such as vessel monitoring systems (VMS), IoT and sensor data collection and transmission.

VesseLINK provides 176 Kbps of upload/download speed for voice and data communications in extreme environmental conditions such as temperatures that range from -40 to +55° C. The highly-compact, lighter-weight antennas make the VesseLINK an ideal solution for smaller platforms such as racing sailboats.

Iridium Certus 200 is ideal for primary vessel communications needs, can serve as a VSAT companion solution and has been designed for future GMDSS service capability. The small form-factor, lightweight VesseLINK 200 has no moving parts, ensuring easy installation, low-maintenance and reliability, giving mariners affordability of both service and equipment.
