There are some IoT applications that are outside the reach of cellular and WiFi networks. In these cases, a modem that connects to a satellite network is required to maintain a connection anywhere in the world. The Gateworks GW16130 Satellite modem utilizes the Iridium 9603N satellite transciever which allows two-way communications anywhere with a clear line of sight to the sky. The 9603N module is used for short burst data packets (340bytes uplink, 270bytes downlink) and perfect for Internet of Things (IoT) remote sensor applications with minimal non-realtime data requirements. The GW16130 provides cost-effective, short burst satellite connectivity for asset tracking, fleet management, telemetry, oceanographic data, grid monitoring and IoT applications.
