DirectDial℠ Plus allows users to place calls directly to mobile satellite terminals located anywhere in the world by simply dialing a pre-assigned terrestrial number. DirectDial℠ Plus increases cost efficiencies for calls placed to registered satellite terminals from a fixed or wireless location.
Our global teleport network automatically locates the Inmarsat mobile terminal using Inmarsat’s mobility management system. For services that are not supported by Inmarsat’s mobility management system (i.e., Inmarsat aeronautical services other than Swift and SwiftBroadband), our teleport network employs a proprietary mobility management scheme that can locate a mobile terminal in any ocean region.
To get started using DirectDial℠ Plus, follow these two easy steps:
1. Register for DirectDial℠ Plus by completing a COMSAT Subscription Form, including a list of the mobile number(s) to be designated to receive calls.
2. Our Customer Care will send an e-mail notification confirming that the registration procedure is complete, assigning the new DirectDial℠ Plus number(s) and providing user instructions
