Iridium Direct Internet 3 for 9555 and 9575 Internet Use

Iridium have just announced new software to use when using the Iridium 9555 and 9575 satellite phones as a modem to connect your laptop to the internet. 

Previous software will cease to work from the 31st October 2016 so if you use this software on your laptop you will need to uninstall it and then visit https://www.iridium.com/Search?qry=direct+internet. Download the appropriate version of Iridium Direct Internet 3 Installer and the User Manuals (2 downloads) and install on your device. 

Windows 10 does not yet support Iridium devices so it will not work for that Operating System.  We expect that Windows 10 will be supported within the next 6 months (Q2 2017). 

Benefits for users

The new Steelhead solution greatly improves the acceleration performance of Direct Internet.
  • Time for data transfers is compressed even further, especially for larger files.
  • Binary data may be transmitted this was not possible with Slipstream.
  • Browsing is made faster although it depends on the site (how much compression is possible).
