The RedPort Halo long range WiFi extender system boosts your WiFi connectivity so that you can connect to a distant WiFi hotspot from up to 7 miles away.
Perfect for boaters and sailors who need to connect to distant marina WiFi hotspots, the RedPort Halo system simultaneously boosts the WiFi connection and creates a WiFI hotspot on board so that you can connect all of your onboard communications equipment (satellite, WiFI, GPS, and NMEA) into one small hotspot.
Connecting to the RedPort Optimizer satellite WiFi hotspot gives you a single point of access belowdecks so that you can use your computers, tablets, laptops, or smartphones to connect to that distant WiFi signal – without leaving the comfort of your boat.
This video walks you through the physical setup of the RedPort Halo system, from connecting the WiFi antenna to the base, where to install it on your boat, and how to connect the antenna to the RedPort Optimizer.
Presenters are Luis Soltero, CTO of RedPort Global, and Topher White, lead Technical Support for RedPort and Global Marine Networks.
