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.
The 9500 Portable Satellite Phone provides global, reliable voice and data. Iridium Satellite provides solutions for individuals who live and work in areas outside of cellular network coverage, or in places with poor landline services. Satellite calls can be routed directly from the satellite phone to the Iridium satellites orbiting the earth.
Dial-Up Data Service provides dial-up connectivity from a PC, through your Iridium phone to another computer, a corporate network/LAN or an Internet Service Provider (ISP). This service offers a data rate of up to 2.4 Kbps.
You will be able to use Dial-Up Data service just as you would use the modem on your computer to dial a call through the public switched telephone network (PSTN). The only differences include the dialed telephone number must conform to the international dialing pattern used by Iridium, and you will use your Iridium phone as the data modem. In essence, your Iridium phone appears as an external modem to your computer.
To use Dial-Up Data Service, you must connect a PC to a data-capable Iridium phone, use a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card that is provisioned for data, and install the Motorola Satellite Series(TM) Modem driver on your computer (provided on the Iridium World Data Services CD). You will then be able to use standard software applications (e.g., Microsoft Dial-Up Networking) to initiate data calls with Dial-Up Data Service.
The Motorola 9500 series portable satellite phone provides reliable voice and communications, worldwide. Weighing less than 16 ounces, and with a battery life of 20 hours standby and 2 hours talk, the 9500 series is simple to use, supports multiple languages and is data-capable.
Data services from Iridium allow you to go beyond the limits of cellular data services. You can attach your satellite phone to a laptop, computer, or PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) to connect to the Internet and email systems. Users do not have to be limited to using the keys on a phone keypad, and can use all the features and displays of a laptop, computer or PDA (Personal Digital Assistant).
QUALCOMM Iridiumô packet data service lets you access the Internet or other TCP/IP packet-switched networks through your QUALCOMM Iridiumô MOTOROLA-9500 Portable Tri-Mode Phone. This User Guide provides detailed descriptions on how to configure and use the Satellite Data Kit with your PC, Macintosh, or UNIX computer or PDA.
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.
