XGate – satellite data optimisation software

Use e-mail, download GRIB-files surf the web over low-bandwidth satellite connections.

XGate is the easiest and fastest way to check and send email while on the water or in remote locations. Without XGate, connecting to data over a satellite phone can be difficult: uncompressed email and web-browsing over a slow satellite connection means long wait times, dropped connections, and expensive airtime at the end. Furthermore, connecting a mobile device or laptop up to the data feed created by a satellite phone often requires complicated setups, driver compatibility issues, and software. XGate works with either a dedicated email address for maximum security and performance, or your existing email services, like Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo! Mail, or your corporate mail service.

Satellite Email
XGate provides all the benefits of a fully-featured email service – right over a satellite feed. With XGate, emails can be written and read offline (saving airtime) and then, with a press of a button, XGate dials the satellite phone, makes the connection, and hangs up when it’s done. If the call drops (which can be a problem for some satellite phones in some regions), XGate can redial and simply pick up the data transfer where it left off. Only XGate also eliminates the back-and-forth of email protocols before using satellite airtime. XGate provides you with a new email address or maximum security and performance, and it works with your existing addresses such as Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, or your corporate address.

Accelerated Web Browsing
Browse the web over satellite with compression. XGate’s XWeb compression loads pages up to 10 times faster, compresses pictures and text, scans for virus and malware, and provides overall protocol compression. This means you get your web-pages 3 to 5 times faster (and benefit from 3 to 5 times the airtime savings).

RedPort Halo – WiFi extender

Make use of (marina) WiFi over long distances

The Halo long-range Wi-Fi extender and local hub takes a weak Wi-Fi signal – at a marina, truckstop, camp, etc – and boosts it, repeating it back directly to you up to 7 miles away in perfect conditions.

The Halo system then takes the boosted Wi-Fi signal and routes it through the RedPort Optimizer local Wi-Fi hotspot. With the RedPort Optimizer you can share your Wi-Fi connection with all the Wi-Fi-capable devices near you – on your boat, truck, or building. Multiple users can connect to the Optimizer and share the Internet connection seamlessly and fast.

  • Package includes:
    • Long-Range Wi-Fi Extender
    • RedPort Optimizer Wi-Fi Hotspot
    • 10m Ethernet Cable
