Iridium Burst

Iridium Communications today announced Iridium BURST, another groundbreaking solution that represents the world’s first global data broadcast solution.

Iridium BURST is the latest proof point in Iridium’s satellite M2M leadership. The new service enables enterprises to quickly and cost-effectively send data to an unlimited number of devices with a single, highly-penetrating beam that reaches anywhere on earth – even inside buildings, vehicles, and aircraft. Organizations can use Iridium BURST to send data and over-the-air updates to assets deployed in various locations (such as on different continents), or in targeted geographic locations. The service can also be used for emergency warnings, weather and traffic alerts, and by government agencies, militaries, businesses, and other entities needing to broadcast data.
