*ETF =
Early Termination Fee
*DSG = Dynamic Sharing Group's enable users to pool their monthly plans together, sharing allowances. This is subject to terms and conditions. A DSG requires application via Apollo Satellite and Iridium and therefore advance notice is required for set-up. DSG's require 5 SIMS minimum. If a DSG is set up prior to 5 SIMs being added to it, there is a 3 month grace period before you are charged for the 5 minimum SIMs. DSG are subject to a 12 month minimum duration period. Should SIMs leave the DSG within the initial 12 month period, the minimum of 5 SIMs will continue to be charged. DSG plans are limited to one migration per month.

100 and 200 Terminal Mixed DSG
A single DSG may included subscribers within the DSG activated on a single common plan and may consist of devices from a mix of either Certus 100 or Certus 200 service class.
Example: a fleet with 10 vessels activates a 25MB DSG across them, and they have Certus 100 terminals on some vessels and Certus 200 terminals on others.

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:

 Destination Type  Protocol Example
Direct IP:PORT  168.45.34.4:10921 (NOTE: The port is required)
E-mail Address  sbddevice001@apollosatellite.com
SBD Device IMEI  300040100001230

 

IRIDIUM SBD ADD-ONS

 Feature Name  Cost
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  $280
Include Geo-Data  FREE
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)
Ring Alerts  FREE
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  FREE
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.
