iDirect NetModem II Plus is the first product designed from the ground
up to deliver IP communications via satellite
The NetModem II Plus is a compact, self-contained terminal that integrates all your required hardware and software. It offers the highest bi-directional data rates available in the industry today - up to 11.2 Mbps downstream and 5.75 Mbps upstream. Adding locations, increasing capacity and customizing your configuration can be accomplished quickly and easily.
The iDirect NetModem II Plus Broadband Router is the first product designed from the ground up to deliver IP communications via satellite - quickly, easily and cost effectively. Our end-to-end technology gives you bi-directional broadband connections that grow with your company.
Installations of the NetModem II Plus generally take less than four hours. All that is required at the site is electricity for the indoor unit and rooftop access for the antenna. The iDirect Technologies solution is so advanced that remote sites do not even require an exterior electrical power supply. And, all that is needed to integrate the system with the on-site LAN is a standard Ethernet 10/100 Mbps LAN interface.
The iDirect NetModem II and II+ broadband routers, now replaced by the iNFINITI product line, are a simple "one box" solution that provides enterprise-class IP transport and traffic management over satellite networks. The NetModem II and II+ are compact set-top terminals that deliver a satellite modem, IP router, TCP optimization over satellite, and QoS/prioritization all in one easy to deploy solution. Because it is highly scalable for both inbound and outbound data rates, it allows users to easily accommodate current and future bandwidth requirements.
We have been receiving favourable comments about iDirect hardware and the service it can provide. It seems that the real differentiator is that they use router technology, and thus benefit from the traffic management theory and technology developed over the years in the mainstream backbone Internet, plus their own developments (patents applied for). The iDirect system has been designed from the start to support IP in a satellite environment.
The Netmodem II Plus customer terminal equipment is a stand alone satellite box thus avoiding any problems with customer PC setup. Your dish and transmit /receive radio modules will be similar to any other system, and will depend on the particular satellite (frequency band, downlink power (eirp) and uplink sensitivity (G/T)). Our highest and proven enterprise class IP solution. The NetModem allows users to select from 14 different service levels depending on the needs of their business. The NetModem Plus 2 is FIPS complaint and highly scalable to meet government/enterprise customer needs.
iDirect's NetModem II Plus broadband router is a simple "one box" solution that provides enterprise-class IP transport and traffic management over satellite networks. The NetModem II Plus is a compact set-top terminal that delivers a satellite modem, IP router, TCP optimisation over satellite, 3DES Encryption, and QoS/prioritisation all in one easy to deploy solution. At the same time, it delivers the highest data throughput speeds in the industry today - 18 Mbps downstream, and 4.2 Mbps upstream. And, because it is highly scalable for both inbound and outbound data rates, it allows users to easily accommodate current and future bandwidth requirements.

The iDirect NetModem II Plus Broadband Router is a compact, set-top terminal that routes IP traffic over satellite networks. This highly advanced Enterprise Class solution integrates all the hardware and software needed to deliver bidirectional broadband connectivity, easily and efficiently, while enabling the highest data rates available in the industry today with throughput speeds of up to 9.1 Mbps. Better still, the NetModem II Plus is highly scalable for both inbound and outbound data rates, which allows users to easily accommodate current and future bandwidth requirements.
In addition to industry-leading technologies including TDMA, Turbo Product Code, and TCP Acceleration, the NetModem II Plus offers unique capabilities that optimize IP application performance through highly efficient bandwidth usage, greater flexibility, and enhanced reliability.
iDirect Technologies' unparalleled Real Time Traffic Management (RTTM) features enable mission-critical information to reach the desired destination quickly and efficiently. iDirect RTTM features include:
The iDirect Technologies hub and remote hardware and software equipment provides connectivity for IP based services such as data, voice and internet connectivity. This Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) network can provide data at speeds from 64 kbps to 4.2 Mbps from the remote site and up to 9 Mbps from the hub to the remotes. Each iDirect remote terminal includes a built-in router and is packaged with features such as link encryption, Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) acceleration, Domain Name Server (DNS) caching and Quality of Service (QoS) prioritisation all in one box.

The iDirect system makes use of a number of inventions (patents applied for) covering their software and hardware components. These patent applications are for proprietary methods, apparatus and systems that impact such aspects as the allocation of bandwidth, quality of service, and network management/optimisation of iDirect's overall Internet Protocol (IP)-based broadband satellite technology. The proprietary technology contained in these patent applications offers iDirect customers real benefits by allowing them to better utilize their bandwidth and provide a quality of service level that is unsurpassed in the industry. The capacity and control provided by the iDirect IP over satellite technology is allowing the customers to provide services like Voice over IP and video conferencing faster, easier, and more profitably all over the world."
