Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) Service is an efficient network protocol designed for shorter sized data messages. SBD uses a proprietary network protocol to transfer data messages to and from the remote terminal. It is possible to send Mobile Originated (MO-SBD) and Mobile Terminated (MT-SBD) messages.

The Iridium Router-based Unrestricted Digital Interworking Connectivity Solution (RUDICS) is an enhanced gateway termination/origination capability for circuit-switched data calls across the Iridium satellite network. RUDICS is a data service designed to be incorporated into an integrated data solution such as remote asset monitoring, control and data file transfer.

The Circuit Switched Data (CSD) Service supports the transfer of relatively large data volumes (tens of kilobytes) using the Iridium dial-up capability. The Iridium Data Module (IDM) places a call to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) or to another IDM then exchanges the data through that open circuit at approximately 2400 bits per second.
