The MCD-MissionLINK Portable Iridium Certus Hotspot is a 100 percent global Internet and phone terminal built straight into a ruggedized casing. For full functioning, no training or certification is required.
Iridium Certus Global Coverage
Iridium Certus services are 100% global, even at full available speeds on the north and south poles. It covers every inch of space above earth, giving it a significant advantage over other satellite services with limited coverage areas or line-of-sight impediments. The Iridium network consists of 66 satellites in Low-Earth-Orbit.
Simplicity At Its Best
The MCD-MissionLINK Portable Iridium Certus Hotspot covers the entire world, so you can obtain a nice, powerful signal no matter where you are on the earth. A quickstart guide is also affixed to the case's lid, allowing unskilled individuals to operate the terminal; as we previously stated, it's that simple! It offers the global communications market unprecedented simplicity, mobility, and ease.
Closed Case Operation
The MCD-MissionLINK Portable Iridium Certus Hotspot does not disappoint when it comes to tough functioning. The MCD-MissionLINK case is built to work even when the lid is closed, providing the ultimate in tough architecture. This effectively upgrades it to an IP66 waterproof classification. This makes it waterproof, as well as capable of withstanding powerful water jets from any direction.
The MCD-MissionLINK has an LED on one side that indicates when the unit is turned on. Even when the unit is turned off, the battery level display remains on (but may be turned off for stealth mode). The internal battery charge port is located next to the display and is watertight when plugged in for full-time, round-the-clock operation.
A conventional phone connection (or two with a splitter) and two LAN Ports with PoE (Power over Ethernet) are available on the MCD-LAN MissionLINK's panel. The next port is a WAN port, which can be used to connect to a principal Internet connection, such as a cellular data service, if one is available. Least-cost routing is available via the WAN port. With attached cabling and a watertight connector, all ports can be made watertight, essentially maintaining the device's waterproof certification.
No pointing or aiming... Simply turn the unit on under an open sky.

IRIDIUM SBD DELIVERY DESTINATIONS
This is where the SBD device should deliver its data. One destination is required and up to 5 are supported. Wildcard characters cannot be used. Examples of valid destinations for each delivery method are shown below:
126.96.36.199:10921 (NOTE: The port is required)
SBD Device IMEI
IRIDIUM SBD ADD-ONS
Message Delivery Point
$350 Per Year
Mobile Termination (Annual Charge)
$70.00 Per Year
Mobile Terminated SBD (MT-SBD) messages are sent to the Iridium Gateway via the Internet from a host computer system. The maximum length of a MO-SBD message is 1960 bytes. The maximum length of a MT-SBD message is 1890 bytes. Global network transmit latency for delivery of messages ranges from 5 seconds for messages of 70 bytes to approximately 20 seconds for maximum length messages. (Additional latency may occur across the Internet)
Mobile Termination Activation
Geo-Data is the last known location (latitude and longitude) of the device. When this option is enabled Geo-Data is included in the message content. By default it is enabled for all the delivery destinations. The SBD GEO data determined by the Iridium satellite network can be included with the message if you are not sending GPS data in the SBD message already. (accurate to about 15 miles)
The Iridium Gateway will send a 'Ring Alert' to the Transceiver when a Mobile Terminated SBD (MT-SBD) message has been queued at the Iridium SBD Gateway. Your mobile application can then decide whether to retrieve the MT-SBD data message at that time or later.
MO ACK - Mobile Originated Acknowledgement
MO ACK setting is used in conjunction with a Direct IP Delivery Destination. The default setting is off. When checked on, the Gateway expects to receive an acknowledgement from the receiving server that it has received the message. If the Gateway does not receive an acknowledgement, it will attempt to re-deliver the message for 12 hours. No other messages will be delivered to the receiving server until the first message is acknowledged.
I work for a utility company and they picked us up one of these to try out while we're out and need to communicate. I can't believe how convenient this thing is it's so simple to operate! The first time out we were up and going in no time using the wireless to communicate with home and the office.
