Iridium’s First Fully Cloud Integrated IoT Solution for Iridium Certus Iridium Messaging Transport℠ (IMT℠) provides customers small- to moderate-sized IoT messaging through Iridium CloudConnect and offers industry standard protocols, programming, message topics and Pub/Sub capabilities through a wide range of Iridium Certus™ modules.
IMT enables customer terminals using Iridium Certus modules to send and receive data over the Iridium® network utilizing industry standard terrestrial IoT/data transactions methods, dramatically simplifying the design, development, integration, message management and transaction flow.
Message Size: IMT transfers data in packet sizes from 1 to 100,000 bytes, providing the ultimate flexibility to meet application requirements.
Topics: IMT sends/receives messages by Topics, with unique settings for priorities, persistence, and queue sizes.
Pub/Sub: IMT’s approach to publish/subscribe messaging serves as the middleware for data transfers as a simple communication methodology.
Along with IoT, IMT is ideal for data that do not require a persistent connection, such as machine-to-machine, and over-the-top (OTT) applications like email, group communications, weather forecasts, and other transactions.
Authentication: IMT uses cross-account authentication. A simple script creates the necessary infrastructure for Topic queue sets.
Private Queues: Topic queue set queues reside in the customer’s AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) environment.
Coverage: Leverages Iridium’s truly global network and AWS’s redundant infrastructure and support.
Secure: Uses a dedicated, secure, private connection to directly connect Iridium to AWS.
Easy Upgrade: IMT is a simple server-side shift for customers who already use Iridium Short Burst Data® (SBD®) with Iridium CloudConnect and allows data ingestion regardless of underlying over-the-air and ground systems technologies and protocols.
