Optimizer is a satellite WiFi hotspot and firewall. This little router connects directly to your satellite phone or terminal and broadcasts a WiFi signal that you can then connect to with your computer, laptop, smartphone, or tablet.
Optimizer is a satellite WiFi hotspot and firewall. Simply connect Optimizer to your satellite phone or broadband terminal and it will create a WiFi hotspot for your computer, tablet or smartphone. XGate satellite data service works with Optimizer to let you access accelerated email, web browsing, download your favorite weather files, or post to Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Most importantly, you can avoid runaway satellite phone airtime bills thanks to Optimizer’s powerful firewall.
How it works
RedPort Optimizer creates a handy WiFi hotspot out of your satellite phone connection, allowing you to connect multiple devices (computers, laptops, smartphones and tablets) up to a single hub.
Optimizer’s built-in firewall blocks all traffic except that carried through XGate. This means that once the link is established data flows through the pipe at optimum speeds, giving you the best possible transfer rate. Since nothing traverses the router except XGate email and XWeb compressed web data, unwanted traffic is eliminated. This prevents surprise airtime bills caused by unmonitored and unwanted background computer traffic such as operating system and other software updates.
The RedPort Optimizer requires a subscription to either XGate satellite email or Iridium Mail & Web in order to function.
Optimizer runs on 12V and has an external battery which allows it to be used as a stand alone hotspot in remote locations. At only 4 x 3 inches, RedPort Optimizer is small and light enough to take anywhere.
