Iridium 9523 Transceiver Features

Integrated Solution

The 9523 is ideal for integrators who need a very compact satellite transceiver to incorporate into an integrated solution for a specific application or vertical market.
Over 90% more compact than the 9522b model and featuring standardized connectors, it easily integrates into new partner products to reach previously under-served consumer and vertical markets.

Key Benefits and Features

• Ultra compact form factor
• Pole-to-pole global coverage
• Voice, SMS and Circuit Switched Data capable
• Single board transceiver
• Simple AT Command Set
• Iridium DPL communications
• Iridium Push-To-Talk capable
• Direct PCB integration
• Larger SBD message capability
• FCC, Industry Canada, and ITU approval
• 12 month warranty

The Iridium 9523 transceiver has a larger SBD (Short Burst Data) message capability than the smaller compact SBD modules. Mobile originated - 1960 bytes, Mobile terminated - 1890 bytes.

The 9523 transceiver is capable of simplified global voice and data connectivity through the worlds furthest reaching network, Iridium.

FCC, Industry Canada and ITU approval.
