You might be surprised at the how differently satellite and GSM terminals operate to remain competitive on airtime. There are applications where the airtime costs are identical to GSM solutions, which are regarded as the lowest cost solution in the industry. Hardware pricing is still more expensive than GSM solutions simply based on the complexity, volume of terminals, and transmission distance and power to the satellite. This does have an... More
Lets start on your journey to find the ideal satellite network. Start by reviewing the "Mobile Satellite World" article Here.
Each network has it's unique personality so lets review them.
Inmarsat is a geostationary network and based on the distance to the satellite, requires a higher gain antenna as well as a larger antenna. Also, there has been limited outside M2M development and integration of Inmarsat technology because of the... More
To start with, the Micro is not specifically a tracking device, it is a processing engine that has access to transmit and receive data over the global Iridium satellite network, position information, sensors, etc. It has a very powerful virtual machine on board that allows realtime processing of scripts by compiling and executing without any external tools.
The basic scripts on the unit will power up GPS, get a position, and then compress and... More
