GDB Pager

SEND A MESSAGE TO ANYONE, ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME. INDOORS OR OUTSIDE, FROM POLE TO POLE - WE HAVE IT COVERED.

Whilst satellite based paging has been achieved in the past, the reception limitations, software deficiencies and hardware capabilities have severely constrained the feasible range of applications.

The GDB Pager is a revolution in wireless communication technology. Together with the Iridium Burst® satellite service, the GDB Pager offers the first truly global roaming capability in a small, hand-held, personal message receiver. Whilst it offers the best in paging features, the GDB Pager does not operate like a typical pager. Most pagers receive messages transmitted from towers on the ground. The GDB Pager receives messages transmitted directly from the global network of Iridium satellites. With most satellite-based communication, such as satellite TV or the Global Positioning System (GPS), a satellite dish or hand-held unit must be positioned outside of buildings to receive information. However, with the GDB Pager, you can now receive messages inside buildings.

From tsunami warnings to weather and traffic alerts, over-the-air updates and other machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, the GDB Pager presents an unrivalled opportunity for businesses, government agencies, military and other entities to broadcast and receive data.

     

Highly cost-effective - You can deliver data to an unlimited number of enabled devices within a targeted geographic region at a fraction of the cost of comparable services.

Quick delivery - Highly actionable and specific information is transmitted in near real-time — often in under 20 seconds.

Powerful transmission - High-powered satellite transmissions penetrate buildings, partial obstructions and weather phenomenon to reach devices.

Stealth - In receive-only mode, no transmissions are made, a feature valued highly by some customer segments.

Secure communications - Customer-defined closed user groups ensure that only authorised devices see the messages. All your messages are always encrypted end-to-end, with optional 2-Factor authentication for ultra-security.

Ease of Use - The ability to send one transmission to thousands of devices simplifies the management of message delivery, especially to high device-density locations.

Online tools - Sophisticated web-based and smartphone tools enable you to create and dispatch messages to any geographical area. Click here to find out more about the GDB Portal.

External antenna option - Extend the reach of Iridium Burst indoors with GDB Boost. The external antenna provides you with the same level of coverage you would have if you were outside!
