Direct Internet

Direct Internet Data Service provides connectivity from a PC, through your Iridium phone, directly to the Internet through dedicated servers at the Iridium gateway. This service utilizes transparent compression, resulting in a data rate of up to 10 Kbps, depending on content. (Graphics and images will result in lower throughput.)

Direct Internet Data Service also offers a feature that manages airtime by seamlessly connecting and disconnecting you through the Iridium system when no data is being transferred. This feature, called "spoofing", will reduce airtime charges, improve the phone's battery life, and seamlessly reconnect to the Iridium system if your connection is dropped.

To use Direct Internet Data Service, you must connect a PC to a data-capable Iridium phone, use a SIM card that is provisioned for data, and install the appropriate software on your computer.

How it Works

The Iridium phone appears as an external modem to your PC. By initiating a connection through the Direct Internet software, the phone will dial and initiate a connection with the Iridium gateway through the Iridium satellite constellation. This connection setup is similar to how a voice call is established, except a data connection is requested and the switch will route the call to the Direct Internet server. Once connected to the Direct Internet server and a session has been established, you will be seamlessly connected to the Internet, as if you were on a LAN.
