Internet Broadband Services via Satellite

iDirect's technology has been optimized to deliver IP traffic over
satellite, without land-line, and can handle any internet or web
enabled functions, including high-speed internet surfing, VOIP,
video-conferencing and others. Our technology is really cutting edge
for IP VSAT in that we are pure TCP/IP-based and it is designed to
deliver very high speed internet services into more remote-areas where
terrestrial solutions are lacking.

The iDirect "NetModem", which goes at the customer premises, is
actually a combination satellite modem and internet router with TCP
Acceleration and QoS built in (our "one box solution"). The Netmodem
can provide up to 9 Mbps of throughput on the receive side and up to 4
Mbps of throughput on the transmit side. We have also built uplink
power control into our technology that provides far greater
reliability even in bad weather conditions.

In general, iDirect's target market has been corporate WAN's,
especially for customers in such sectors as oil and gas and government
that need a highly robust, application rich solution. One area where
we are seeing a quite a big interest is for using our technology for
hybrid VSAT/terrestrial wireless solutions. In this scenario, the the
VSAT link receives the high-speed internet connection, and then the
internet is distributed from the VSAT using WiFi or some other
terrestrial wireless solution.
