The Iridium Edge® Pro is a standalone device with Short Burst Data® (SBD) that offers real-time GPS tracking capabilities, and a flexible programming platform that allows developers to create and run their own custom-made applications. Example uses include fisheries, vessel and fleet management, and remote monitoring.
Benefits of the Iridium Edge include low latency and shorter registration time. Furthermore, the Iridium network offers 100% coverage, which is even available at the poles.
The Iridium Edge Pro does not require a SIM card, as it is registered via its IMEI number when an Iridium SBD contract is signed.
