Digi International has announced that the Iridium satellite network now supports the iDigi Device Cloud™, meaning that Digi devices with an Iridium data transceiver inside can now send and receive data via the iDigi Device Cloud over the Iridium network.

In addition, customers can use Digi’s ConnectPort® X5R gateway, equipped with the Iridium® 9602 short-burst data (SBD) transceiver, to connect devices to iDigi. The gateway is a compact, ruggedized tracking and telematics device that incorporates cellular, satellite, global positioning system (GPS), Wi-Fi and vehicle area network (VAN) wireless technology in a single enclosure for flexible networking connectivity.
