SlipStream Data Accelerates Iridium Satellite’s Communications Service. World’s Largest Commercial Satellite System Delivers Faster Mobile Data To The Planet

SlipStream Data Inc., the industry leader in data acceleration software stated today that its new mobile acceleration solution, SlipStream MSP, will be used to provide enhanced data communications to the Internet over Iridium Satellite’s low-earth orbiting (LEO) satellite network. SlipStream MSP accelerates mobile data up to 2x faster and provides more than 2x compression than alternative acceleration providers (as per independent third party testing by CWLab, January 2006), providing subscribers with a significantly improved browsing experience. Iridium is branding the capability as “Direct Internet 2.0.”

" We were looking for a proven acceleration product," said David Wigglesworth, Director of Data Services for Iridium. "Subscribers to the Iridium network often rely on Iridium to keep them in touch with the outside world from remote locations. SlipStream’s solution maximizes their ability to utilise the Internet over Iridium."

Iridium Satellite LLC is the only provider of truly global satellite voice and data solutions with complete coverage of the earth (including oceans, airways and Polar Regions). Iridium delivers essential communications services to and from remote areas where no other form of communication is available. The Iridium constellation of 66 LEO, cross-linked satellites operates as a fully meshed network and is the largest commercial satellite constellation in the world. The Iridium service is ideally suited for industries such as maritime, aviation, government/military, emergency/humanitarian services, mining, forestry, oil and gas, heavy equipment, transportation and utilities. Iridium provides service to the U.S. Department of Defense. The company also designs, builds and sells its services, products and solutions through a worldwide network of more than 100 partners.

Cam Ruttle, SlipStream’s Head of Sales for North America, said “Iridium’s decision to place SlipStream acceleration technology throughout their global network was a validation of our ability to provide superior performance across many different wireless network types (2.5G, 3G, WiFi, satellite and WiMax).”

SlipStream MSP uses patented acceleration, adaptive data compression and state-of-the-art network optimization technology to streamline text, graphics, Flash and Web-based emails, including attachments. SlipStream MSP is the only solution to support the widest range of devices and deliver consistent Quality of Service (QoS) from good to poor RF and across all network generations (2.5G, 3G, 4G).

SlipStream’s solution for Mobile Service Providers will be seen at numerous trade shows in 2006, including Telexpo Brasil, São Paulo, Brasil (Mar. 7-10), The 2006 Digital Africa Summit, Cape Town, South Africa (Mar. 22-24), CTIA Wireless, Las Vegas, USA (Apr. 5-7), SVIAZ/EXPO COMM, Moscow (May 10-13), ISPCON Spring 2006 (May 16-18), CommunicAsia 2006 (June 20-23), The 2006 Digital Latin America Summit (Jul. 11-13) and The 2006 3G CDMA Americas Congress.
