No matter whether you want to broadcast data to tens, hundreds, thousands or even millions Iridium's Burst service delivers data to unlimited numbers of enabled devices, targeted geographically, including towns and cities, states and regions, at a fraction of the cost of comparable alternatives.

Iridium is a powerful satellite transmission network, which delivers data unobstructed by buildings, partial obstructions or even severe weather.
And it delivers it in near real-time. Highly actionable, immediate, customer-specific information is often delivered within less than 20 seconds.

Enabled devices can be configured to work in stealth mode. This receive-only feature is highly valued for some specialist applications.

Customer-defined closed user groups can also provide secure communications to specifically to authorised devices only.

Iridium Burst service receivers are small, light and robust technology, meeting a wide range of environmental standards.

Iridium will deliver an Iridium 9602-based Iridium Burst enabled device when the service is launched and will be followed by an Iridium 9603-based device within 12 months.

Iridium Burst will transmit data in any desired format and has the ability to transmit a single message to thousands of enabled devices. It makes message delivery management simple and straightforward, particularly to locations with a high density of enabled devices.

The Iridium Burst service is available anywhere on Earth and enables you to communicate in an entirely new way and on entirely new scales.

How the Iridium Burst sends the message:

1. Sender, machine or individual, formats the transmission and specifies the recipients by group and location(s) and any other required information.
2. Iridium Burst Service receives the transmission data and validates its format, scheduling the transmission(s) before sending the data to the Iridium gateway.
3. Iridium gateway receives the transmission request and the message is sent to the appropriate satellite(s).
4. On receipt of the transmission the Iridium satellite network relays the data to the satellite beam(s).

How it works…

1. All messages are received by every Iridium Burst-enabled devices in the targeted geographic area.
2. Only authorised devices belonging to the specified recipient group can unscramble the transmission.
3. The field application pulls the data from the Iridium Burst-enabled device.
