DIAL-UP DATA SERVICE--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- OVERVIEW

Dial-Up Data Overview
Dial-Up Data Service provides dial-up connectivity through your Iridium phone to another
computer, a remote LAN (e.g., a corporate network), or an Internet Service Provider (ISP). This
service offers a nominal data rate of 2.4 Kbps.
You will be able to use Dial-Up Data service just as you would use the modem on your computer
to dial a call through the public switched telephone network (PSTN). The only differences are
that the dialed telephone number must conform to the international dialing pattern used by
Iridium, and that you will use your Iridium phone as the data modem. In essence, your Iridium
phone appears as an external modem to your computer. Before using Dial-Up Data, you will
need to install the Motorola Satellite Series Data Modem driver (provided on the Iridium World
Data Services CD) on your computer. You will then be able to use standard software applications
(e.g., Microsoft Dial-Up Networking) to initiate data calls with Dial-Up Data Service.
How it works
You are probably familiar with using your computer and its modem to perform dial-up data
applications across the PSTN. Most computers have an internal modem, to which you connect
your telephone line. Figure 1 illustrates how you dial your ISP to access the Internet. (The
modem is shown external to the computer for illustration purposes.) On your computer, you
configure a dial-up networking connection. As part of that connection, you identify which modem
to use and the phone number to dial. Then, in dial-up networking you enter your user name and
password to access your ISP, and you initiate the connection. Your modem dials into and
connects to another modem at your ISP. Once connected and a session has been established,
you can check your email and browse the Internet.

Figure 1. PSTN Dial-Up Connectivity
Dial-Up Data Service functions in much the same way. From the perspective of your computer,
the Iridium handset is an external modem. On your computer, you will configure a dial-up
networking connection. As part of that connection, you will identify the modem associated with
the Iridium handset and the phone number to dial. Then, in dial-up networking you will enter your
user name and password to access your ISP, and you will initiate the connection. Your handset
will actually dial and initiate a connection with the Iridium gateway through the Iridium satellite
constellation. This connection setup is similar to how a voice call is established, except a data
connection is requested. Since your Iridium handset is requesting to establish a data connection,
the switch at the gateway will route the call through a modem. The modem at the Iridium
gateway will then dial into and connect to another modem at your ISP. Once connected and a
session has been established, you can check your email and browse the Internet just like you
would across the PSTN. Figure 2 illustrates how a Dial-Up data call is routed.

Modem Driver Installation and Configuration
Prior to using your Iridium phone as a modem for Dial-Up Data, you must do the following:
•
•
Install the Motorola Satellite Series™ modem driver on your PC, and
Set up and configure a dial-up networking connection.
This section contains instructions for installing the modem driver and configuring Dial-Up
Networking in selected Microsoft Windows environments. These instructions are identical to
those that you would use to install and configure any new modem in Microsoft Windows. If you
cannot find your operating system below, please refer to the user manual provided with your
computer and follow the instructions for installing a new modem.
Note:
In order to proceed, Dial-Up Networking must be installed on your computer. DialUp Networking is a standard Windows feature that is typically installed by default
when a computer is initially set up. If Dial-Up Networking is not installed on your
computer, please refer to the user manual provided with your operating system
and follow the instructions for installing Dial-Up Networking.
⇒ For Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows Me, complete the steps in
section 3.1
⇒ For Windows NT4.0, complete the steps in section 3.2
⇒ For Windows 2000, complete the steps in section 3.3

Configure Dial-Up Networking – Windows 95/98/Me
In order to use your Iridium handset for dial-up networking, you need to create a new dial-up
networking connection.
In Windows 95:
Choose Start > Programs > Accessories > Dial-Up Networking
In Windows 98/Me: Choose Start > Programs > Accessories > Communications > Dial-Up
Networking
In the Dial-Up Networking window, you can modify an existing connection type or create a new
connection type. Unless you are comfortable using the dial-up networking options, we
recommend that you create a new connection type for Dial-Up Data.
To Create a New Connection Type:
1. In the Dial-Up Networking window, double-click Make New Connection. Henceforth, you can
cancel at any time without affecting your system by clicking Cancel.
2. In the Make New Connection window, enter a connection name and select Motorola Satellite
Series Data Modem from the device list. For example, if you are creating a connection to
your ISP and your ISP is called Saturn Internet, you might name your connection “Iridium
Saturn.” Click Next >.

3. In the Make a New Connection window, you must do the following:
•
In the Telephone number box, enter the telephone number you wish to use for your
connection. Enter the number in international dialing format:
00 + Country Code + Area Code/Phone Number.
For example, if you are dialing an ISP in Tempe, Arizona, USA, you would enter
00 1 480 555 5555, where 1 is the country code and 480.555.5555 is the ISP’s telephone
number.
Note: This is the same dialing pattern used for voice calls. In fact, you can verify that you are dialing
the correct number for your ISP by dialing the number as a voice call on your satellite phone. You
should hear your ISP’s modem tones if dialed properly.
