The RedPort HALO Long Range WiFi Extender System Pro from RedPort takes a poor WiFi signal – such as at a marina, truck stop, basecamp, or other location – and amplifies it dramatically, repeating it up to 7 miles distant in ideal conditions. The boosted WiFi signal is then routed through the RedPort Optimizer WiFi hotspot by the Halo system (add-on option available). With the RedPort Optimizer, you can share your WiFi connection with all WiFi-enabled devices in your vicinity — whether they're on your boat, truck, or building. The Optimizer allows several people to connect and share your long-range WiFi Internet connection in a fluid and quick manner.
RedPort HALO Long Range WiFi Extender System Pro
It's a typical occurrence: you're at a marina, truckstop, or camp, and the free (or inexpensive) WiFi only extends to the front door of the office. By installing the RedPort Long Range WiFi Extender on your boat (or truck, RV, or other vehicle), you'll be able to capture the same WiFi signal from miles away.
You can connect to the Internet even if you don't utilize XMail, XGate, or XWeb compressed web-browsing with the RedPort Halo system. The RedPort Halo Long Range WiFi Extender System does not require a service subscription to work. The majority of customers subscribe to XGate and XWeb because the compression and acceleration operate effectively on both ordinary and satellite Internet.
GSM and Satellite Phone Compatible
All contemporary satellite phones and terminals, as well as various GSM-based USB modems, are compatible with RedPort Optimizer. You may easily and quickly switch between a distant marina WiFi hotspot and your satellite system after you move out of range with the RedPort Halo long range WiFi extension on board.
The RedPort HALO Long Range WiFi Extender System Pro works with RedPort XGate. XGate email service is your gateway to compression email, accelerated downloads, weather files (like GRIBs) via email, compression web-browsing, and social media posting for Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. XGate works will your devices, including those running: Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh, Linux, Apple iOS, and Google Android.
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.
Who Uses Halo Long Range WiFi?
The RedPort Halo Long Range WiFi Extender System is perfect for anyone needing outdoor WiFi boosters to capture long distance or highly-contended WiFi signals.
Hallo allows cruisers and other marine WiFi users to connect to marina WiFi in ports and harbors where free or inexpensive WiFi is available. The RedPort Halo Long Range WiFi Extender System will allow you to connect to the main marina access point even if you are in a distant slip or otherwise located far away from the main WiFi access point.
From commercial fishing and maritime transport, the RedPort Halo allows ships, rigs, and barges of all shapes and sizes to connect to land-based WiFi while in port or harbor.
When travelling in remote areas of the world with little or no cell coverage, Halo allows you to connect to distant WiFi access points at rest stops, camps, truck stops, and motels.
Whether you are a commercial fishermen or go sport fishing once a month, Halo allows you to quickly and easily connect to available land WiFi when near shore.
M2M (Machine to Machine)
The RedPort Halo Long Range WiFi Extender System has such a long WiFi range that it is used in remote areas where WiFi may be available at a single hotspot, but not broadcast very far. Halo can capture that signal and rebroadcast it to trucks, teams, combines, oil wells, etc.
When you spend your life on the road, you need to be able to sit back and relax in your cab with a good Internet connection. While in remote areas with no cell coverage, Halo allows you to connect to truck-stop WiFi even if you are parked far away.

Was so happy with the older version I upgraded to the Pro. The Internet is not an issue anymore when I'm on the road. I just park and sleep and surf the net without issues when I need to. It makes doing my job on the road that much easier and keeping in touch with home cannot be given a value. Thanks to Apollo's support for all of their help as well, upgrading to the Pro version was a very good idea; highly recommended!!
Went ahead with the power backup bundle and am very happy with the whole package. The Yeti is a lot more handy to have around than what I thought it would be. I charge everything with it and the antenna is built nice and solid. I get signals from all around traveling when I'm parked; perfect for my needs.
