In-flight global voice and narrowband data capabilities.

Think of Axxess as the foundation of your cabin system. Its open and flexible architecture lets you customize with available functions and easily upgrade as new functionality and networks are introduced. Multiple channels are built-in to give you both reliable global voice and narrowband data. For broadband communications, optional add-on units put the entire Internet at your fingertips, anywhere in the world.

In its most basic form, Axxess is anything but basic. Two built-in channels of Iridium service give you both global voice and narrowband data capabilities (for fax, graphical weather information and cockpit data). Its multi-channel PBX operates much like an office phone with features like call routing, call waiting and confer­ence calling. But that’s only the beginning. When paired with our Data Interface Unit (DIU), Axxess provides FANS over Iridium (FOI) as a field retrofit. Add either Gogo Biz in-flight Internet or SwiftBroadband for broadband connectivity to the Internet using laptops, tablets or smart phones.
