How Optimizer Premier Works

Optimizer Premier combines a powerful satellite data router with a VoIP gateway, offering a flexible, elegant solution for onboard multi-user environments. With a multi-WAN functionality and full failover capabilities between networks, Optimizer Premier is the true hub for all your onboard networks:

  • Satellite systems (up to 2)
  • Long Range WiFi Extender
  • GSM

Most importantly, Optimizer Premier provides PIN-code capabilities for any type of connection you might have, giving you ultimate control over how much access (and airtime) users can have.

Data with Optimizer Premier

Optimizer Premier for Data

Optimizer Premier provides unlimited firewall, filtering, routing, PIN-code creation, and local GPS repeating. It works with RedPort Mail service for premium access to accelerated email and web compression, as well as GPS tracking via RedPort Tracking or any GsatTrack-based service.

Because Optimizer Premier also re-broadcasts available compatible GSM and long-range Wi-Fi signals, its powerful data controls (including PIN-codes!) can be used with networks other than the primary satellite connections.

Optimizer Premier for VoIP

The voice capabilities of Optimizer Premier allow for unlimited multi-VoIP (unlimited extensions), conversion from VoIP to circuit-switch, and some of the best compression rates on the planet: 15 minutes of talk time per MB. Because of the PIN-code capabilities of the router, PIN-codes can be created for crew, passengers, work teams, and guests for both data or voice calls.

Unlike traditional satellite airtime plans where only one outgoing call can be made at a time, Optimizer Premier allows for 4 simultaneous outgoing calls over most satellite broadband terminals.

Why You Need Automatic Failover

With automatic failover configured, Optimizer Premier will automatically switch between available networks to give you the fastest, cheapest connectivity available to you at that time. Users can be connected to long-range Wi-Fi (say at a marina), pull away from shore and failover to GSM, and then finally failover to satellite once completely out of the reach of terrestrial networks.

Optimizer Premier has ports for up to 2 satellite connections, in addition to GSM and long-range Wi-Fi, so failover can be configured to balance between two different satellite connections.

Best of all? You can configure load-balancing and least-cost routing between the failover options, so you can always be assured to keep your data usage in check and under control.

Satellite Email $

Users can access email via a local web page or by simply entering settings into their preferred email client (such as Outlook or Apple Mail) with up to 20 times acceleration. RedPort routers include a full POP/SMTP RedPort Mail server.


Web Compression $

Transparent proxy service can automatically reduce http data consumption by a factor of 3-5 times, saving on valuable airtime, and accelerating limited satellite data speeds.


GPS Tracking $

Tracking your assets is now as simple as clicking your mouse and viewing them online. RedPort Tracking offers online maps that display exact location and offer advanced features like geo-fencing.


RedPort VoIP $

Use RedPort VoIP service to make up to four simultaneous calls, use prepaid or postpaid service, and get low termination rates to the destinations you call most. A built-in PBX gives you an onboard phone network for local calls.


CheckmarkVoIP to Circuit Switch

The Optimizer Premier includes VoIP to circuit-switch conversion, which means that you can pick up your cellphone and – using the free XGate Phone app – make and receive traditional satellite phone calls with your smartphone, instead of plugging into the satellite terminal itself.

$ = Premium Service. Monthly Fee May Apply.

“Boaters are demanding maximum access to data services as boats have become an extension of home and office. Optimizer Premier gives people access to Wi-Fi and cellular data where it’s available and their satellite Internet service everywhere else.

Plus, it has the services needed to get the most out of every single kilobyte.”

— RedPort CTO Luis Soltero

RedPort Optimizer Premier Compatibility

The router works with virtually all satellite providers and all computer operating systems. Note that a standard network would typically have a satellite broadband Internet terminal as the primary satellite connection and only use a narrowband satellite device (like a handheld satellite phone) as a failover device. * Some Equipment Requires Compatible Serial-USB cable (not included)
