Introducing the first one-to-many global data broadcast service
Iridium Burst® is a service that makes it possible to transmit data to tens, hundreds, thousands, even millions of enabled devices at a time using the world’s most robust satellite network – with a pricing structure that doesn’t break the bank.
Highly Cost Effective: Delivers data to an unlimited number of enabled devices within a targeted geographic region at a fraction of the cost of comparable services.
Powerful Transmission: High-powered satellite transmissions penetrate buildings, partial obstructions and weather phenomenon to reach enabled devices.
Quick Delivery: Transmits highly actionable, customer-specific information in near real-time — often in under 20 seconds.
Stealth Mode: Iridium Burst-enabled devices can be configured as receive-only so that no transmissions are made, a feature valued highly by some customer segments.
Secure Communications: Customer-defined closed user groups ensure that only authorized devices may see the data received.
Robust Technology: Iridium Burst service receivers are small, light and meet many environmental standards. Iridium will have an Iridium 9602-based Iridium Burst enabled device at service launch, followed by an Iridium 9603-based device within the year.
Data Format Agnostic: Iridium Burst can transmit data in any format desired.
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.
Global Reach: The service is available from anywhere to everywhere on the planet.
