The old Apollo software that the Iridium kit used in the past is being replaced by the new Iridium Direct Internet 2.0.2 Iridium.
Data users must upgrade to this new software prior to May 31, 2006 because the old Apollo software will no longer work after this date.
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 effective throughput data rates higher than the 2.4 Kbps service that Iridium’s data service operates at. The actual throughput will depend on the content being transferred and the protocol used. (Graphics and images will result in lower overall throughput, text will result in higher overall throughput.)
