Iridium satellite now supports Digi cloud

On Tuesday, Digi International announced that the Iridium satellite network now supports the iDigi Device Cloud. Similar to cellular SMS, Digi devices with an Iridium data transceiver inside can now send and receive data via the iDigi Device Cloud over the Iridium network.


The iDigi (Minnetonka, Minn., USA) Device Cloud provides the infrastructure required to access and control devices over the Internet, says Digi. Software developers can access the cloud via iDigi Manager Pro and/or iDigi Web services to simplify device integration.


"With Iridium, we can now extend the benefits of cloud connectivity to devices connected everywhere in the world. This is particularly valuable for asset tracking and fleet management applications where connectivity is often critical in areas lacking landline or cellular connectivity," says Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International.


Customers can use Digi's gateway, equipped with the Iridium (McLean, Va., USA) 9602 short-burst data (SBD) transceiver, to connect devices to iDigi. The gateway is a compact, ruggedized tracking and telematics device that incorporates cellular, satellite, global positioning system (GPS), Wi-Fi and vehicle area network (VAN) wireless technology in a single enclosure, says Digi.
