- A two-way cloud native networked IoT data service that is optimized for use was announced by Iridium Communications Inc.
- Iridium Messaging Transport (IMT) service is designed to easily add satellite connections to existing or IoT solutions.
The new IoT data service provided by Iridium CloudConnect and AWS can reduce development costs and speed time in the market for Iridium-connected IoT devices. IMT designed an IP data transport service for the Iridium network that can support satellite IoT applications.
Based on the application platforms, IMT aligns with the newly established server-device message constructs using hubs and queues. Using an Iridium Certus terminal, the IMT service can be used by a customer application that can store and forward small amounts of data traffic between servers.
Benefits of IoT Data Service
IMT improves two-way messaging worldwide with updates on emails, weather, transactions, or group chats.
The Iridium CloudConnect service integrates Iridium IoT capabilities with the cloud services of AWS. It helps in expanding IoT reach to customers with over 85% of the earth that does not have terrestrial coverage.
Various technologies and industry-standard protocols are involved in managing and delivering messages in the cloud. It helps in designing scalable applications with many advantages that are faster, easier, and less expensive.
Introducing the new IoT data service, IMT service adds a powerful capability to the Iridium Certus and a value-added service for the partners of Iridium and the IoT market. Everyone is excited to use IMT to add this satellite connectivity to their new and existing solutions across various industries that may yield benefits.
Iridium Certus is the only broadband service that offers weather-resilient connectivity and is reliable. It is unique in the satellite industry with high-quality voice, live video, emails, and IoT data transfer. Iridium provides fully global covered and is best suited for IoT applications.
