AxcessPoint must be used in conjunction with an
Iridium 9555 or Iridium Extreme
satellite phone and requires an active
satellite phone subscription with data service. Prior to connecting
your Iridium AxcessPoint, turn on your Iridium phone in an open area and ensure
it is registered with good signal strength. Once your Iridium AxcessPoint is
connected to the Iridium phone (via the included USB cable) and turned on, it
will automatically establish an Internet connection. You can connect your
smartphones and send emails using Wi-Fi access and your Iridium connection.
Iridium data speeds for the Wi-Fi hotspot are narrow band without acceleration
software. An Iridium AxcessPoint connection can be optimized with the use of
email and web acceleration software.
