What is iDirect?

iDirect is an equipment manufacturer that sets the highest standard of satellite hardware for business grade service using voice (VoIP phone), video and data transmission. Ground Control’s iDirect service offers second to none performance on a shared system by utilizing iDirect’s patented Deterministic Time Division Multiple Access (D-TDMA) and Multi Frequency Time Division Multiple Access (MF-TDMA) technologies.

Our automated network infrastructure ensures that traffic is balanced across all carriers on the satellite network to increase the amount of bandwidth AND increase the security since traffic is changing frequency up to 8 times per second. iDirect’s payload efficiency is approximately 98% – this is significantly higher than the 60% efficiency offered by similar solutions. Less overhead on the satellite means more bandwidth available on a shared channel.
