Now, Iridium customers can use Optimizer with Iridium Mail & Web, providing all of the functions of the AxcessPoint.
Maryville, TN (PRWEB) February 27, 2015
Global Marine Networks (GMN), a leading satellite phone and airtime retailer, today announced the launch of a trade-in program for owners of the Iridium AxcessPoint device. Customers who trade-in their now discontinued AxcessPoint to GMN will receive a $75 refund toward the purchase of a RedPort Optimizer satellite Wi-Fi hotspot, and a free month of XGate satellite data optimization service. The RedPort Aurora Iridium Satellite Terminal is also an approved product for a $75 credit upon trade-in. Both RedPort devices may now be used with the Iridium Mail & Web iOS and Android apps.
In a statement to its dealers, Iridium has identified the RedPort Optimizer as an alternative product to the Iridium AxcessPoint. There are also changes to Iridium data applications. The mobile versions of AxcessPoint Mail & Web app are no longer available and have been replaced by Iridium Mail & Web app. Iridium Mail & Web app is an upgraded version of AxcessPoint Mail & Web app and provides additional functionality including ability to request weather, enhanced home screen, compatibility with the latest mobile operating systems and expanded support for operation with RedPort Optimizer and RedPort Aurora.
“AxcessPoint was a groundbreaking device and good way to let Iridium satellite phone users BYOD “Bring Your Own Device” whether smartphone, tablet or computer, when used with the Iridium apps” said Dr. Luis Soltero, CTO of GMN. “Now, Iridium customers can use Optimizer with Iridium Mail & Web, providing all of the functions of the AxcessPoint, but with Optimizer’s faster processor, greater Wi-Fi range, Ethernet port, 12V power for easy installation, and available external batteries for longer battery life. Optimizer works any IP-based satellite service, USB-based GSM services and with long-range Wi-Fi antennas.”
Optimizer is compatible with Iridium Mail & Web iOS and Android apps, as well as RedPort XGate satellite data optimization services. XGate is the world’s leading independent satellite data acceleration service letting people easily and affordably access accelerated email, web, weather forecasts and data, social media and blogging wherever they go.
To take advantage of the trade-in offer, customers may simply visit the GMN satellite phone store to purchase an Optimizer and then submit their old AxcessPoint device.
