Iridium Edge® Solar

Price: $499.00



The Iridium Edge® Solar is a standalone and programmable, solar-powered Short Burst Data (SBD) device that offers real-time GPS tracking and local wireless sensor and communication capabilities over Bluetooth. The Product's self charging, low maintenance, long firld life and over-the-air configurtions allow Iridium Value-Added Resellers to create distinct tracking applications that can also be implemented to create even more complex solutions.

  • Highly Mobile - The iridium satellite network provides communications and connectivity for mobile applications such as oil and gas, transportations, agriculture, and surface mining anywhere on the planet allowing tracking and monitoring of vehicles and assets operating in remote areas
  • Reliable Coverage - Devices using the Iridium satellite network are enabled by a constellation of 66 Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) mobile satellites that provide service anywhere on the planet.
  • Low Latency - The Iridium satellites in Low-Earth Orbit (~800 km), enable signals to travel in 1/40 the time compared to the geostationary satellites (36,000 km), resulting in low-latency, always-on connections ideal for Internet of Things (IoT) deployments.
