Iridium repeater kits come with all the parts needed for a successful installation apart from the optical fiber.
Fiber can be supplied, cut to the correct length and terminated with the appropriate connectors.
The outdoor unit (ODU) and indoor unit (IDU) can be connected to existing optical patch panels, or directly connected with a dedicated length of optical fibre.
Optical fibre is available with pre-installed connectors – FalTech can advise and source fibre for you, or put you in touch with an experienced optical fibre vendor.
Each kit contains:
More indoor antennas can be added by installing signal splitters and coaxial cables.
For situations where physical separation of >3Km is not required.
Outdoor unit (ODU) and indoor unit (IDU) now combined into one enclosure with no optical fiber interfaces.
Each kit contains:
Up to 5,000 ft2 of hangar space can be covered by a single system with a ceiling height of 130 ft.
Iridium Communications Inc. is a Virginia, USA-based company that provides a truly global voice and data communications service via the world’s largest commercial satellite constellation.
The Iridium network provides high-quality voice and data connections over the entire surface of the planet – across continents, oceans, airways and even the polar regions.
The constellation consists of 66 cross-linked, low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites (plus six in-orbit spares), operating as a fully-meshed network.
This comprehensive coverage footprint provides a highly dependable, critical communication lifeline to a wide variety of users the world over.
The graphic illustrates how the 66 satellites achieve global coverage, at a height of approximately 483 miles above the Earth’s surface.
There are 11 satellites in each of 6 orbital planes, with orbits roughly “crisscrossing” above the north and south poles.
Iridium network: facts and figures:
However, use of Iridium devices indoors is very difficult, if not impossible, without sky-view. This is where an Iridium repeater kit plays a very important role in a number of different applications.
Iridium repeaters enable transmission of Iridium and GPS signals from outdoor to indoor.
This video explains the installation process for Iridium and GPS optical repeaters and the basic functionality of the system.
