Short burst data - Special modems such as the 9522A, 9601, 9602 and Quake Q9612 can be used for sending and receiving short data bursts, less than 2 kilobytes at a time. This service is often used for asset tracking and remote monitoring. Messages are converted to be delivered in email format or over HTTP to a preconfigured address; the mobile unit does not include a destination address when sending a SBD message. A crude positioning report is also included in each message sent. SBD messages take from 6 to 22 seconds to send or receive. The latest generation of SBD transceiver, the Iridium 9602, can receive up to 270 bytes per SBD data message (defined by Iridium as "mobile terminated SBD") and can transmit a maximum of 340 bytes per SBD message (defined by Iridium as "mobile originated SBD"). A real-world example of the 9602 chipset in use is the YB Tracker.
The MCG-109 is a fully digital interface to the Iridium network for managing voice, data, SMS, and SBD traffic.
The MCG-109 is a fully digital interface to the Iridium network for managing voice, data, SMS, and SBD traffic. Easily deploy just a few or lots of terminals on the same network, and centrally manage the entire network.
The unit plugs into any computer network and connects via IAX2 to a PBX for voice services, or via a virtual serial port for dial up data, SMS, or SBD services. Also, monitoring the system is easy with network diagnostic tools and desktop software. Integration of satellite technology is finally as simple as plug and play!More
