RedPort Optimizer Features
Optimizer is a satellite WiFi hotspot and firewall. Simply connect Optimizer to your satellite phone or broadband terminal and it will create a WiFi hotspot for your computer, tablet or smartphone. XGate satellite data service works with Optimizer to let you access accelerated email, web browsing, download your favorite weather files, or post to Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Most importantly, you can avoid runaway satellite phone airtime bills thanks to Optimizer’s powerful firewall.
RedPort Optimizer and XGate satellite email service work together to save you time and money – while connecting you to the people and information you need. Optimizer requires a RedPort- certified data service like XGate in order to work. Optimizer’s 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. 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.
RedPort Optimizer eliminates the problems associated with 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. Indeed, the built in firewall blocks ALL traffic except that carried through a RedPort-certified data service like XGate, a branded version of XGate, or Iridium Mail & Web. 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.
