Halo Long Range WiFi Extender System

The Halo long-range WiFi extender system takes a weak WiFi signal – at a marina, for example, or truck stop, basecamp, etc – and powerfully boosts it, repeating it back to you up to 7 miles away in perfect conditions.

The Halo system then takes the boosted WiFi signal and routes it through the RedPort Optimizer WiFi hotspot (sold separately). 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 your long-range WiFi Internet connection seamlessly and fast.

Everything You Need to Boost Your Marine WiFi


Long Range WiFi Extender Features


Long Range WiFi Features

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, RV, etc) means that you can capture that same WiFi signal – even up to miles away.

Long Range WiFi Features

Optimizer Local Hub (sold separately)

Once you’ve captured 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 distant Marina WiFi from the comfort of your own boat.

Long Range WiFi Features

NMEA Compatible

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.

Long Range WiFi Features

GSM and Satellite Phone Compatible

RedPort Optimizer seamlessly works with all current satellite phones and terminals and select GSM-based USB modems. With the RedPort Halo long range WiFi extender on board you can easily and quickly switch between a distant marina WiFi hotspot and your satellite system once you get out of range.

Long Range WiFi Features

Optimized Apps

The RedPort Halo system works with RedPort XGate.XGate email service is your gateway to compression email, accelerated downloads, weather files (like GRIBs) via email, compression web-browsing, and social media posting for Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. XGate works will your devices, including those running: Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh, Linux, Apple iOS, Google Android

Long Range WiFi Features

Internet Ready

Even if you choose not to use XGate compression email or XWeb compression web-browsing with the RedPort Halo system, you can still connect to the internet. A subscription to services is not required for the RedPort Halo system to function. Most users do subscribe to XGate and XWeb because the compression and acceleration works excellently over both regular Internet as well as satellite.

Who Uses Halo Long Range WiFi?

The RedPort Halo Long Range WiFi system is perfect for anyone needing outdoor WiFi boosters to capture long distance or highly-contended WiFi signals.


Marina Long Range WiFi

Recreational Cruisers

Hallo allows cruisers and other marine WiFi users to connect to marina WiFi in ports and harbors where free or inexpensive WiFi is available. The Halo system will allow you to connect to the main marina accesspoint even if you are in a distant slip or otherwise located far away from the main WiFi accesspoint.

WiFi at Port

Commercial Maritime

From commercial fishing and maritime transport, the RedPort Halo allows ships, rigs, and barges of all shapes and sizes to connect to land-based WiFi while in port or harbor.

Fishing Long Range WiFi


Whether you are a commercial fishermen or go sport fishing once a month, Halo allows you to quickly and easily connect to available land WiFi when near shore.

Long Range WiFi for Machines

M2M (Machine to Machine)

The RedPort Halo system has such a long WiFi range that it is used in remote areas where WiFi may be available at a single hotspot, but not broadcast very far. Halo can capture that signal and rebroadcast it to trucks, teams, combines, oil wells, etc.

RV Long Range WiFi


When travelling in remote areas of the world with little or no cell coverage, Halo allows you to connect to distant WiFi accesspoints at rest stops, camps, truck stops, and motels.

Truck Stop Long Range WiFi


When you spend your life on the road, you need to be able to sit back and relax in your cab with a good Internet connection. While in remote areas with no cell coverage, Halo allows you to connect to truck-stop WiFi even if you are parked far away.

“Here is the winner. It was easy to install and works like a charm, has plenty of power, pulls in a weak signal, covers a range up to 7 miles, works wonderful on Skype and gives us freedom to work simultaneously on multiple devices like a laptop and iPad and was not breaking the bank….”

Special Focus: Marina WiFi Booster

While the RedPort Halo WiFi Extender system works excellently in a variety of different environments, sailors looking to boost the WiFi reception on their boats find the RedPort Halo system to be particularly useful when capturing long distance marina WiFi.

It’s a common situation: you’re on your boat in a marina and you’re trying to connect to the free (or cheap) marina WiFi. If you’re too far away, if there are too many other people using the connection, or if the marina WiFi is just too weak to reach you successfully, you can’t connect.

The RedPort Halo system is the perfect solution to create a WiFi hotspot on your boat and allow you to boost the marina WiFi signal so that you can connect without a problem.
