Features and Specs
The RedPort Halo system combines the most powerful long-range Wi-Fi extender on the market with the popular RedPort Optimizer Wi-Fi Hotspot. Using these two together gives you a total package of Wi-Fi connectivity.
Long-Range Wi-Fi Extender
It’s a common problem: you’re at a marina, truckstop, or camp and while there is free (or cheap) Wi-Fi available, it doesn’t extend past the front door of the office. Setting up the RedPort Long-Range Wi-Fi Extender on your boat (or truck or RV, etc) means that you can capture that same Wi-Fi signal – even up to miles away.
Optimizer Local Hub
Once you’ve capture that long-range Wi-Fi, what do you do with it? Optimizer takes that Wi-Fi internet connection and rebroadcasts it around your location. That means you can connect to, say, a Marina Wi-Fi from the comfort of your own boat.
RedPort Optimizer works as a NMEA repeater to broadcast your NMEA data (GPS location, AIS, weather data) to your navigational software on your smartphones, tablets, or computers.
GSM and Satellite Phone Compatible
RedPort Optimizer seamlessly works with all current satellite phones and terminals and select GSM-based USB modems.
The RedPort Halo system works with RedPort XGate and other leading data acceleration apps, including Network Innovations Speedmail; Satphone Store Satphone.me; SatLink Mail and more. Access email 20 times faster and browse the web 3-5 times faster on average than uncompressed usage. Works over any standard Internet connection.
