How does it compare to other technologies?

Global Data Broadcast is a unique service offering. No other service combines the high link margin, true global coverage, ability to regionalize coverage and content, group delivery capability and small user terminals in a single service.

GDB is not intended to replace point-to-point or peer-to-peer data services such as cellular or connection based satellite services. It is targeted at one-to-many data distribution over wide areas.

How much data can I send?

A single GDB message can be up to 10 Megabytes in size. The typical user will send messages that are only a few bytes to a few Kilobytes. Short messages (100 bytes or less) are delivered very quickly. As message size grows, it takes longer to deliver the complete message.

What data delivery rate can I expect?

Data delivery rates vary with system load and capacity and range from a few kilobytes an hour to about a megabyte per hour.
