Iridium Edge

Iridium Edge


The Iridium Edge seamlessly integrates into the SU-1200 vehicle tracking device to provide reliable satellite communication that expands connectivity beyond 4G to a 100% global coverage.

When used with the SU-1200, the Iridium Edge provides fallback connectivity whenever Telstra 4G Cat M1 coverage is not available.

Package includes Iridium Connection and SU-1200 Iridium Edge wiring interface.

Adding Iridium connectivity to the SU-1200 is made easy with the Iridium Edge. Our package includes everything that’s required to deploy quickly.

How does it work?

Combining the Iridium Edge with the SU-1200 provides two communication options, Mobile (Telstra 4G Cat M1) and Satellite (Iridium).

When the SU-1200 loses mobile coverage, it will automatically switch over to Satelite, as soon as mobile coverage is available, the device will switch back to mobile coverage.

Why have both and not just Satelite?

Satellite communication is considerably more to send data than mobile. Therefore it makes sense to configure the satellite update profile differently to the mobile profile.

Critical location information such as duress, accident, roll-ver and trip start or end will update in real-time on both mobile and satellite. However, to lower satellite cost, the frequency of updates made while in a trip can be scaled back from every 30 seconds or where the vehicle changes direction to a fixed timed update of between 10 minutes to 60 or more minutes.

Detailed trip data retained.

The SU-1200 will continue to collect detailed location data based on the mobile profile, which is stored when cellular coverage is lost. Once the SU-1200 regains mobile coverage, historical data is uploaded to our secure servers.

Complete Reliability

Iridium’s mesh architecture creates a web of coverage providing 100% of the globe from Low Earth Orbit, providing low-latency, weather resilient services. No other network provider can match the coverage, reliability, and reliability of Iridium.

Low Earth Orbit

At only Seven-hundred and eighty kilometres from the Earth, Iridium’s LEO network provides a truly global footprint, shorter transmission paths, stronger signals, lower latency, and shorter registration time than with GEO satellites.
