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.
What is Included?
- Long-Range Wi-Fi Extender
- RedPort Optimizer Wi-Fi Hotspot (Optional accessory - simply add to your basket above)
- 10m Ethernet Cable
- Optional Compression/Acceleration Apps
- With the RedPort Halo long-range Wi-Fi extension system, you can get Wi-Fi from farther away, accelerate your connection by a factor of 3 to 5 times, and then share that Wi-Fi connection throughout your boat, truck, camp, etc.
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.
RedPort Halo Key Features:
Long-Range Wi-Fi Extender
It’s a common problem: you’re at amarina, 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.
