MCD-MissionLINK Portable Certus Hotspot - Apollo Satellite

MCD-MissionLINK Portable Iridium Certus Hotspot

Upto 2 Week Custom Build Time ARO

A portable, 100% Global Internet & Phone terminal engineered right into a ruggedized case. There is no training or certification required for full operation.

Iridium Certus Global Coverage

Iridium Certus services are 100% global even on the north and south poles at full available speeds. There is no place above ground it does not cover... an excellent advantage over other satellite service that have limited service regions or line-of-sight obstructions. The Iridium network uses 66 satellites that are moving in Low-Earth-Orbit

Simplicity At Its Best

The MCD-MissionLINK operates covering 100% of the globe so no matter where you are on the planet you can get a good, strong signal. A quickstart guide is even attached to the lid of the case which allows for untrained users to operate the terminal; as we said, simple! It brings unrivaled simplicity, portability, and convenience to the global communications market.

Closed Case Operation

As far as rugged operation, the MCD-MissionLINK does not disappoint. The MCD-MissionLINK case is designed to operate with the case lid closed bringing you the ultimate in rugged engineering. This effectively brings it up to a waterproof rating of IP66. This makes with waterproof with the addition of being able to handle powerful water jets from any direction.



LED Panel

On one side of the MCD-MissionLINK is a LED that shows when the unit is turned on. The battery level display stays on even if the unit is turned off (but may be turned off for stealth mode). Next to the display is the internal battery charge port that is watertight when plugged in for full time round-the-clock operation.

LAN Panel

The LAN panel of the MCD-MissionLINK allows a standard phone connection (or 2 with splitter), and two LAN Ports with PoE (Power over Ethernet). Next is a WAN port to connect up a primary Internet connection if one is available, such as a cellular data service. The WAN port offers least-cost-routing. All ports may be watertight with attached cabling with the watertight connector effectively keeping the waterproof rating for the device.

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 (NOTE: The port is required)
E-mail Address
SBD Device IMEI  300040100001230



 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.
