RedPort Glow Offers Perfect Satellite Communication for the Leisure Cruiser

RedPort Glow Offers Perfect Satellite Communication for the Leisure Cruiser

Once you join the leisure cruising lifestyle, you never go back. From coastal cruising to the great loop, beginners and veteran boaters alike are drawn to the peace and tranquillity of the water. However, if you work, live or play on the water it’s often difficult to adjust to satellite communications.

The satellite industry offers many options for phones and terminals. Most solutions will work for the leisure cruiser, but some are better than others. There are just too many options creating confusion and endless hours of internet research as to what solution works best for your boat and needs.

So the question becomes, “What is the best satellite phone and terminal for the leisure cruiser?”

Glow Iridium WiFi Terminal

At Global Marine Networks, we feel the Glow Iridium WiFi Terminal is the best solution. After all, it was developed specifically for leisure cruisers.

Easy to install, easy to use, easy to live with.

Glow gives you the full coverage of the Iridium satellite network with the power of RedPort hardware and services.

Satellite-optimized voice, email, weather forecasts, social media and location sharing are at your fingertips. Glow saves you airtime, money and connects you as simply as possible. Plus, Glow is the world’s only marine-dedicated satellite phone with access to Iridium’s best service plans, including Unlimited and Double Data.


Glow uses your existing smartphone, WiFi phone, or standard telephone (with an optional adapter.) Glow’s phone exchange will place calls from one end of the vessel to the other, or around the world via Iridium’s global satellite network.


Glow allows access to optimized email, PredictWind Lite weather and wave forecasts, photo sharing, posting to your friends and family on Twitter and Facebook, and more, all with the XGate or Iridium Mail & Web apps.
