Iridium Edge Features

Rugged, reliable and cost-effective asset tracking and fleet management

Deliver more value to customers by leveraging your existing terrestrial-based IoT or M2M solutions for fleet management, telematics, safety and other remote monitoring applications. Iridium Edge™ is a cost-effective satellite IoT communications device that can be rapidly deployed and complements terrestrial-based solutions to create worldwide connectivity. Iridium provides global IoT/M2M coverage for the most remote and inaccessible areas of the world.

Rapidly Deployed IoT Solution

Fast time-to-market is a critical need in today’s evolving asset tracking and fleet management environment. Iridium Edge features an all-in-one Short Burst DataSM (SBDSM) modem and antenna, with power supply. The plug-and-play satellite IoT device can be easily paired with existing satellite and cellular solutions, without complicated integration or development requirements.

Key Features

• Expand connectivity beyond cellular limits for 100 percent global IoT/M2M coverage
• Satellite add-on enabling dual-mode capability
• Hardware-ready device for simple, low-risk integration
• Low-cost device for affordable customer adoption
• Ready-to-install for quick time-to-market
• Robust power supply for industrial installations
• 180° line of sight for compromised locations
• Certified in key geographic markets

Benefits of the Iridium LEO Satellite Network for IoT/M2M

Iridium EdgeTM inherits the many benefits of the Iridium network.
• 100 percent truly global coverage from pole-to-pole
• Provides a stronger, more robust satellite signal compared to GEO constellations
• Shorter transmission path of LEO network results in lower latency and shorter registration time
• Greater flexibility in installation
• Improved line of sight over GEO systems in compromised locations or behind large obstructions
• Overlapping satellite coverage and crosslinks provide redundancy and increased reliability
