Satellite as a secondary Internet connection

Unlimited On-Demand Satellite Connectivity

When your primary network provider fails, unlimited on-demand satellite connectivity is available with a 1.2-meter satellite system on the roof. Maintain business continuity with any unexpected event, transparently using your network router to perform a failover to a satellite link. Service is unlimited and charged by the day, or by the megabyte transferred if you wish. All plans require a minimal monthly cost to ensure an active satellite internet connection.

Satellite service is not prone to localized disasters. As long as there’s power, a satellite will provide broadband connectivity to your organization. Our iDirect packages are designed for 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 indeed 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 (a router with two or more WAN ports) may not be necessary if already owned.

 

24-Hour Monitoring and Notification

The instant there’s a primary network failure and usage over the satellite network exceeds the on-demand trigger transfer limit, 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, you may never know the primary provider is down and needs to be repaired. With an unlimited on-demand service, you only pay $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 24/7 online support department is also available should immediate assistance be required.
