Overview

The Iridium 9601 combines the global coverage of the Iridium satellite constellation with the low latency of the Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) Service.

The Iridium 9601 is ideal for Iridium registered partners requiring a transceiver for applications specific to the Iridium SBD Service. The Iridium 9601 integrates into a final Iridium subscriber solution for a specific application or vertical market, such as a vehicle or maritime vessel tracking solutions.

The Iridium Short-Burst Data (SBD) Service provides:

  • Mobile Originated messages (up to 340 bytes)
  • Mobile Terminated messages (up to 270 bytes)
  • Low, uniform global latency (less than 1 minute)
