Satelite service is not prone to localized disasters or backhoes. As long as there is power, satellite will provide broadband connectivity to your organization. Our performance iDirect packages are designed for multi-users organizations that must have unlimited use at a predictable price.

Business Continuity Solutions


Transparent Connectivity
If a fail event happens, the switch or failover to the satellite gateway would be instant and would not require administrator intervention. When the primary connection returns, the satellite connection reverts back to sleep mode. Satellite is in deed a network uptime Insurance policy.

Simple Integration
Ground Control will help you integrate our satellite system into your existing network. The purchase of a failover router (One with two or more WAN ports) may not be necessary since if already owned.

24-Hour Monitoring & Notification

The instant the satellite network goes offline (or back online), an email or SMS message can be generated and sent to any party to inform of the network outage. With the transparent nature of the satellite failover, one may never know the primary provider is down and needs to be repaired. With Unlimited On-Demand, you pay only $75 for 24 hours of unlimited use.

Installation and Maintenance Support
Our nationwide base of field certified technicians will install and be quickly available to maintain the satellite equipment. Our 24 x 7 online support department is also available should immediate assistance be required.
