Enhances Iridium Extreme Handset
The ASE Extreme Docking Station supports and enhances the power of the 9575 handsets by coupling external Iridium and GPS signals and exposing all handset ports and buttons to the user when docked. This includes easy access to the SOS emergency button. The ASE Extreme Dock securely locks the handset in place and provides a latching connection to eliminate vibration and ensure reliable communications even in the most rugged conditions. The Dock fully supports all location and tracking features including Iridium Extreme™ portal providers and partners of location-based services (LBS).
Innovative Voice and Data Connections
The voice connection with this ASE Extreme Dock features a ‘unique to the industry’ palm-held speaker/mic with a push-to-talk (PTT) operation that is familiar to many first responders and security personnel.
For data use, the ASE Extreme Dock supports SMS text messaging and provides a direct USB connection to the 9575 handset, requiring no additional drivers or upgrades beyond the standard Iridium handset driver. Additionally, this port fully supports Iridium’s AxcessPoint to provide a global Wi-Fi hotspot for devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops, connecting users in ways never before possible.
The ASE Extreme Dock accepts a male TNC for Iridium and a male SMA for GPS (mag-mount GPS antenna included). Therefore, in-vehicle applications require no additional antennas when used together with Iridium’s mag-mount antenna supplied with their handset. For non-vehicle applications, ASE offers a variety of marine and dual-mode antenna solutions.
