Iridium Satellite Services Overview

Iridium Buest

Iridium Buest (GDB)

Iridium Burst allow broadcast messages to many terminals at the same time in a predefined area - A very inexpensive way to communicate with many terminals at the same time - can be used for software control on M2M or as corrective GPS info as samples. Burst service can be used as stand alone service or can be combined on terminal with any other Iridium service like SBD - allowing terminals to receive broadcast as well as be able to send messages back to the grid.

Iridium Certus 100

Offering data speeds up to 88 Kbps as well as dual voice lines capability. Iridium Certus 100 is a perfect solution for mobile, fixed, and portable operations like temporary workforce communications, remote monitoring, and real-time M2M asset control.

Iridium Certus 200

Iridium Certus 200

Iridium Certus 200 is similar to 100 but offering more speed - still a relative small terminals that offer better connectivity - offering upload and download speeds up to 176 Kbps, Iridium Certus 200 is still small, lightweight, low-power making it a perfect choice for easy installation. High-quality voice calling on-the-move to internet and messaging, Iridium Certus 200 is a perfect choice for personal remote communication.

Iridium Certus 700

Iridium Certus 700

Iridium Certus 700 is top of the range within L-band satellite services - Iridium Certus is an award-winning, advanced, multi-service platform enabled by the upgraded truly global Iridium constellation. Offering download speeds up to 704 Kbps, no other service can match the speed on the market in L-band with global coverage. Connect at sea, connect at land with high satellite speed.

Iridium Circuit Switch

Iridium CSD Data

Iridium Circuit switched data (CSD) is an asynchronous, circuit-switched, 2400bps, bi-directional service that allows for dial-up services. Offering larger amounts of data, including files of dozens or hundreds of megabytes to be transmitted. Optimal for devices and applications where their is limited number of devices that need to send data a few times per day/week/month, or where centralized users want to connect to remote installations periodically for grapping data.

Iridium Cloud Connect

Iridium Cloud Connect

Iridium cloud connect is a service made on Amazon cloud - Iridium CloudConnect provides an option for developers to use Iridium satellite network as a connectivity environment that it integrating to remote installed applications. A solution offering satellite cloud-based adapter service that transfers Short Burst Data (SBD) messages from Iridium-connected devices to the AWS Cloud. Using Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS), this deployment establishes the standard architecture to send and receive.

Iridium Distress Service (GMDSS)

Iridium GMDSS

Iridium have introduced Sea Distress service similar to Inmarsat FBB - Distress will allow ships/vessels to press emergency button and gain access to nearby vessels and the coast supervision - currently is it only Lars Thrane terminals that is supporting GMDSS service. Offering global GMDSS services similar to Inmarsat, providing safety services available anywhere on the globe.

Iridium Openport

Iridium OpenPort

Openport is one of the highly succesful Iridium service that have been on the market for long time based on L-band with Voice & Data Up to 134 Kbps. Providing voice and data connectivity that is priced typically lower than many other solutions - Iridium Openport cover most market segments across Land, Maritime and Aero.

Iridium Push to Talk

Iridium Push-To-Talk

Iridium Push To Talk (PTT) is offering satelite connectivity that is working very similar to the way a traditional walkie is working simply push the handset buttonb and speak. It is working across customer defined location area's - customer select between certain location sizes and can define 3 area's with this and a terminal are only charged in a period if used with a flatrate fee no matter how much it is used.

Iridium RUDICS

Iridium RUDICS

Router-Based Unrestricted Digital Internetworking Connectivity Solutions (RUDICS) is an enhanced data service that allows customers who have requirements for large data transfers the ability to transfer data via reliable, affordable, multi-protocol Mobile Originated (MO) and Mobile Terminated (MT) circuit switched data connectivity across the Iridium satellite network. It utilizes circuit switching technology via a dial-up modem and ISDN for low-bandwidth data transfer for Iridium subscriber units (ISUs), enabling a host application to originate and terminate numerous connections simultaneously. Often these applications are designed to support hundreds or thousands of remote units..

Iridium Short Burst Data

Iridium Short Burst Data

Iridium SBD offer Real-time, two-way messaging anywhere in the world - and can be used with the small and inexpensive Iridium SBD modules developed by Iridium. A simple, efficient packet-based service for frequent short data transmissions between equipment and centralized host computer systems, SBD is a very good choice when it come to inexpensive satellite M2M solutions - and can be seen as very similar to traditional mobile SMS services.

SBD communication can be send to different destinations like IP addresses for servers or directly to email accounts - and support one to many communication capability.

Iridium Netted Services

Netted Iridium

Netted Iridium is mainly used by military communication - Distributed Tactical Communication System Made for the U.S. Government and eligible for the Iridium-EMSS Contract through U.S. Space Force & Commercial Satellite Communications Office.

With its unique broadcast capability, Netted Iridium Distributed Tactical Communication System provides a robust, tactical, low-latency, push-to-talk solution. Broadcast to an unlimited number of users over a single secure channel and take advantage of netted real-time voice and data services.

Iridium Voice Services

Voice Calling

Iridium delivers circuit switched voice capability across most of their terminals - with postpaid, prepaid voice calling - offering crew calling capabilities. Iridium enables the critical voice communications needed for individuals, businesses, organizations, governments, and NGOs all over the world in a terminal setup that have a relative small footprint. A range of Iridium and Iridium Connected solutions and a variety of calling plans designed to meet the most needs.

Iridium M2M services

Iridium M2M

Iridium offer relative inexpensive modules that handle SBD, GDB, low speed data - these modules are perfect for satellite M2M solutions and their is a large range of companies that have been developing a broad set of M2M solutions based on these modules. Satellite M2M solutions are fast entering the market and more asatellite operators start to directly offer M2M airtime that is fitting good with the demand for less expensive access to remote sensors, remote location tracking and similar.

Iridium OEM services

Iridium OEM

Iridium offer a range of hardware modules that allow other companies to build their own functionality on top - other providers of OEM modules for Iridium can be Rockblock. These OEM modules can be used for services that need simple end to end connectivity - across SBD, Burst and similar.>br>
These core modules are relative small in footprint - an example can be their latest IR-9523-OEM or their Iridium Edge modules that come with complete developer kits.

Iridium M2M modules

Iridium are producing together with partners a large range of satellite M2M modules that easily can be integrated into any custimized solution - their SBD and GDB offer a relative inexpensive way to use satellite connectivity.

Iridium Distress GMDSS

Maritime Distress services (emergency solution for sea) have for many years mainly been provided through Inmarsat, but Iridium are now offering the same capability, allowing vessels to report pirates, request help when needed linked to SOS and similar..

Iridium terminals supporting GMDSS are currently from Lars Thrane's serie of Iridium terminals - and our software provide the ability to manage the actual needed emergency contact data inside Iridium.
