RedPort Optimizer Satellite WiFi Router for Satellite Phones and BGANs

The Redport Optimizer device connected to a satellite phone or broadband terminal will create a Wi-Fi Hotspot and will give you and your team easily access email, web, weather and social media services, and even track your location. Its powerful firewall blocks all unwanted service to eliminate runaway satellite phone airtime bills.

Simply connect Optimizer to your satellite phone or broadband terminal, and it will create a Wi-Fi hotspot for your computer, tablet or smartphone. The RedPort Optimizer is very reasonably priced with a modest monthly fee for ongoing data compression services. Price varies depending on length of subscription. The Redport Optimizer runs on 12V and has an external battery which allows it to be used as a stand alone hotspot in remote locations. 


  • WiFi signal makes setup and use with compatible computers and tablets easy
  • Firewall stops all unwanted data traffic
  • Track GPS locations from GPS-enabled satellite devices
  • Improves performance of virtually all satellite phones and satellite broadband terminals
  • Small and light at only 4.0"x2.75" inches

RedPort Optimizer eliminates the problems associated with most USB cables, and boasts a firewall that eliminates all unnecessary computer traffic, giving you access to the maximum throughput of your satellite phone data service. The built in firewall blocks ALL traffic except that carried through XGate. This means that once the link is established data flows through the pipe at optimum speeds giving you the best possible transfer rate. This allows you to browse the Internet with Xweb compression increasing the effective bandwidth of the connection while reducing airtime costs. Since nothing traverses the router except XGate email and XWeb compressed web data, unwanted traffic is eliminated.This prevents surprise airtime bills caused by unmonitored and unwanted background computer traffic such as operating system and other software updates.

The router works with virtually all satellite providers and all computer operating systems. And it also works with Beam docking stations and Fleet phones. This means that Mac OS X users can now do data over Beam products, which was previously not possible since Beam does not provide drivers for this platform.
