Your obedient cyber servant has arrived: For sailors who want to connect to WiFi, cellular networks (GSM), and satellite, the RedPort Optimizer Premier Router is an all-in-one solution. It chooses from a variety of data connections (WiFi, cellular) as well as all satellite broadband Internet terminals, such as VSAT, Inmarsat FleetBroadband, and Iridium OpenPort. For comprehensive pricing control and usability, RedPort Optimizer Premier users can add RedPort's industry-leading compression and email services to conventional capabilities like multi-user access and control, firewalling, filtering, and remote VPN management.
How Optimizer Premier Works
The RedPort Optimizer Premier Router combines a strong satellite data router with a VoIP gateway to provide a versatile and elegant solution for multi-user settings onboard. It is the genuine hub for all your onboard networks, including satellite systems (up to 2), Long Range WiFi Extenders, and GSMs, with multi-WAN functionality and full failover capabilities between networks. Most crucially, the Optimizer Premier supports PIN-code functionality for any sort of connection, allowing you complete control over how much access (and airtime) users have.
Use RedPort VoIP service to make up to four simultaneous calls, use prepaid or postpaid service, and get low termination rates to the destinations you call most. A built-in PBX gives you an onboard phone network for local calls.
With automatic failover configured, Optimizer Premier will automatically switch between available networks to give you the fastest, cheapest connectivity available to you at that time. Optimizer Premier also offers full-featured load-balancing and least-cost routing to keep your airtime costs under your control.
Users can access email via a local web page or by simply entering settings into their preferred email client (such as Outlook or Apple Mail) with up to 20 times acceleration. RedPort routers include a full POP/SMTP RedPort Mail server.
Tracking your assets is now as simple as clicking your mouse and viewing them online. RedPort Tracking offers online maps that display exact location and offer advanced features like geo-fencing.
