Model 9522B is a satellite modem designed to operate with the Iridium network. Similar to a standard land-line modem, the 9522B can be controlled by any data terminal equipment (DTE) capable of sending AT commands through an RS232 serial port. A DTE can be a desktop computer, a laptop computer, or even a micro-controller. The 9522B supports the following services: dial-up data, direct Internet connection, short message service (SMS), short-burst data (SBD), RUDICS and voice.
Smaller and lighter than the 9522A, the 9522B is Iridium’s 2nd-generation satellite transceiver for truly global voice and data communications. The 9522B is ideal for registered Iridium partners who need a satellite transceiver to incorporate into a final Iridium subscriber solution for a specific application or vertical market, such as a maritime voice telephone terminal or a vehicle tracking solution.
The Iridium 9522B satellite transceiver is ideal for sending and receiving voice and data from equipment everywhere on the planet. It functionally supports all of Iridium’s voice and data services and easily integrates into a wide variety of applications through a RS232 serial interface and AT command set. Connection adaptors are available to enable the Iridium 9522B to be used in place of the Iridium 9522A. A pass-thru connector allows a GPS receiver to use the same antenna as the Iridium 9522B LBT. The Iridium 9522B is approved by the FCC, Industry Canada, and CE, assuming an antenna with a gain of -3dbi . It can be integrated into a variety of Iridium subscriber products, or retrofitted into existing Iridium 9522A-based products.
