How to Do Satellite Phone Email & Web via Iridium Wi-Fi Hotspot for iPod, iPad, Android

Its a wi-fi hotspot and firewall for satellite phone email and web and it works with the Iridium 9555 or the Iridium Extreme 9575 and your iPod Touch, iPad, iPhone, Android, Pc or Mac. Advantages of AxcessPoint:

– The Iridium AxcessPoint is a Wi-Fi hotspot that allows computers and devices without USB ports to connect to the internet via an Iridium satellite phone.

– It eliminates the tedious process of connecting the satellite phone directly to the computer. Driver installation/configuration is not necessary. Simply connect to the AxcessPoint Wi-Fi hotspot the same as any common hotspot.

– It has a built-in firewall that automatically blocks all unnecessary internet traffic except compression-based email and web browsing which reduces the amount of valuable satellite time used during each data session.

– The AxcessPoint Mail and Web app works on iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches.

Requirements for Using AxcessPoint:

– Purchase the device which retails for less than $200.

– Must have an account with Iridium to be able to use the AxcessPoint Mail and Web software.

(Note: The software is needed because the satellite link is slow, only 2400 baud. All internet-aware software will try to use the satellite link once it is established. The software will reprogram the AxcessPoint to block all traffic except email and compression-based web browsing. Also, without the software the AxcessPoint wants to automatically establish and maintain a connection to the internet via the satellite phone which can quickly become very costly. With the software, the AxcessPoint is reprogrammed to connect only when transferring email or browsing the web. In other words, the AxcessPoint is reprogrammed to connect manually only when needed, then automatically disconnects the satellite phone at the end of the email or browsing session.)


To get the free AxcessPoint Mail and Web software, you must register at IOS device users can get the software at the iTunes store.

In order to fill out the registration form for the software, you must have an Iridium Airtime Account and will need to enter the satellite phone number into the form. You will also need the MAC address of the Iridium AxcessPoint Wi-Fi device, which is located on a sticker on the bottom of the device.

Accounts stay open for one year from the date of last use, after which they are expunged from the system.
