Circuit Switched Data (CSD)
Dial-up data now.
Extend dial-up data applications to any location on
Many industries from Oil and Gas, to Utilities and Power
Generation use Iridium Circuit Switched Data (CSD) for data acquisition, remote
monitoring and metering and security.
Roadpost has paired the Iridium CSD network with satellite modems from Wireless
This durable low data rate modem provides asynchronous data connectivity at 2.4
Kbps and is easily interfaced into existing dial-up data applications. It can
also provide data acquisition, alarm reporting and discrete I/O functionality.

What is Iridium CSD?
CSD is an affordable service that lets you extend dial-up
data applications to computers or field equipment located in areas with
unreliable or no terrestrial dial-up connectivity. Iridium CSD services provide
asynchronous dial-up data connectivity at rates of 2.4 Kbps through an Iridium
modem to another computer, a corporate network or to the Internet. It is
ideally suited for transferring large files, bi-directional machine to machine
(M2M) communications or situations where email, FTP, SSH or HTTP post is
How it Works
Iridium CSD is like traditional terrestrial dial-up data
connectivity. Your existing terminal emulator software or a dial-up networking
connections can be configured to call another computer, a remote LAN or access
When a data call is placed, the Iridium modem dials into
and initiates a connection with the Iridium gateway through the Iridium
satellite constellation. The modem at the Iridium gateway then dials into and
connects to another modem at the other end, or routes the data call directly to
Email Over Dial-up
Roadpost optimizes email based applications over dial-up
which reduces call length and therefore lowers airtime charges. Users are
provided with a modem specific authenticated SMTP account that supports the
secure sending and receiving of email, removes the need for lengthy modem
negotiations and significantly reduces the potential for dropped calls before
messages are sent.
You'll also get a webmail interface for each account
allowing you to monitor mailboxes, check for incorrect messages and configure
advanced email filtering options – like removing SPAM.
Roadpost offers secure storage to save all messages sent
through email servers and provides a complete historical archive for additional
back up protection.
In addition to value added tools, Roadpost also offers
flexible cost effective Iridium CSD plans, and our technical experts will be
happy to tailor specific data solutions that meet your business requirements.
