The RedPort Halo Long Range WiFi Extender System takes a weak WiFi signal, even from miles away, and boosts it making it a useful connection. At a marina, for example, or a truck stop, a basecamp, basically anywhere you have a weak signal where an antenna is needed it can work up to 7 miles away in perfect conditions. The Halo system takes the boosted WiFi signal and routes it through the RedPort Optimizer WiFi hotspot (available as optional add-on).
With the RedPort Optimizer you can share your WiFi connection with all the WiFi-capable devices near you – whether it is on your boat, truck, or building or anywhere else for that matter. Multiple users can connect to the Optimizer and share your long-range WiFi Internet connection seamlessly and fast. If you are ever in need of an antenna because of a weak signal you do not need to look any further, this will bring in that signal, boost it, and allow you to enjoy your own connection.
It’s a common problem. You’re at a marina, truckstop, or camp and while there is free (or cheap) wifi available it does not extend past the front door of the office. With the RedPort Halo WiFi Extender on your boat or RV you can capture that wifi signal even up to miles away and enjoy your own wireless signal at your location with multiple devices.
Optimizer Local Hub
Once you have captured that long-range wifi, what do you do with it? Optimizer takes that wifi Internet connection and rebroadcasts it around your location. That means you can connect to, say, the wifi at a marina 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
The RedPort Optimizer works seamlessly with all current satellite phones and terminals and select GSM-based USB modems effectively bringing convenience to your signal.
