How RedPort Optimizer Works

Optimizer combines a satellite Wi-Fi router with a voice gateway, offering a simple but powerful solution for individuals or small vessels to get the most out of their satellite data service. Simply connect a satellite phone or satellite terminal and Optimizer will create and manage your Wi-Fi or simple Ethernet network.

When connected to an Iridium Certus or Inmarsat satellite terminal, Optimizer’s onboard phone exchange lets you make and receive calls with a standard telephone, ethernet phone or with a Wi-Fi-connected smartphone using the XGate Voice app. Optimizer will pass through all calls using standard satellite voice service, or use RedPort VoIP service to make up to 4 simultaneous calls.

Optimizer works with a wide range of apps for satellite users, including RedPort XGate, to enable satellite email, web, weather services, tracking and more. Best of all, it includes a firewall that blocks unwanted data usage, saving users money while ensuring maximum speed for important services.

Redport Tracking

Tracking your position almost anywhere on the planet is as easy as plugging Optimizer into your compatible satellite phone or terminal and letting your travels take you where they will.

When used with a satellite phone or terminal that has an embedded GPS, Optimizer will relay a vessel’s position report to RedPort Tracking
where you can see a history of its locations, set alerts, and embed an individual map on a webpage of your choosing.


The RedPort Tracking Web-Portal

The web-portal consists of a detailed, robust online tracking interface that provides:

  • Real-time Position and Tracking
  • Longitude and latitude info
  • Emergency alarm/ SOS/Movement alarm/ Overspeed alarm/
    Border crossing alert
  • Geo-fence alarm
  • Course and Speed (on web-based tracking site)
  • Web-based tracking or mobile-phone-based tracking
  • Central Monitoring system (web-base)
  • History of tracking movements
  • Ability to track hundreds of vessels or assets on one
    web-based monitoring system

Embedding Your Unique Tracking Map on Your Site

With RedPort Tracking, you can choose to embed your unique tracking map (or that of your vessels)
on a site of your choosing. For individuals, this means that friends and family back home can
immediately see where you are located in the world and follow along on your journey.

For those needing commercial vessel tracking, this means that you can view all of your assets
at once on one single map, set zone alarms and alerts, and see vessel history in one flexible interface.

I have heard (and seen) some horror stories with folks trying to do things another way; those that saw the Optimizer and iPad in operations were more than envious; having a hassle-free email connection once it was up and running is absolutely the only way to go.”
