The Halo system then takes the boosted WiFi signal and routes it through the RedPort Optimizer local WiFi hotspot. With the RedPort Optimizer you can share your WiFi connection with all the WiFi-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.

Features & Specs
The RedPort Halo system combines the most powerful long-range WiFi extender on the market with the popular RedPort Optimizer WiFi Hotspot. Using these two together gives you a total package of WiFi connectivity.
Long-Range WiFi Extender
It’s a common problem: you’re at a marina, truckstop, or camp and while there is free (or cheap) WiFi available, it doesn’t extend past the front door of the office. Setting up the RedPort Long-Range WiFi Extender on your boat (or truck or RV, etc) means that you can capture that same WiFi signal – even up to miles away.
Optimizer Local Hub
Once you’ve capture that long-range WiFi, what do you do with it? Optimizer takes that WiFi internet connection and rebroadcasts it around your location. That means you can connect to, say, a Marina WiFi 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 & 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.
