RedPort Optimizer and XGate satellite email service work together to save you time and money – while connecting you to the people and information you need. Optimizer requires a RedPort-certified data service like XGate in order to work. Learn about XGate here.

XGate Satellite Email Service

RedPort Optimizer creates a handy WiFi hotspot out of your satellite phone connection, allowing you to connect multiple devices (computers, laptops, smartphones and tablets) up to a single hub.

Optimizer’s built-in firewall blocks all traffic except that carried through XGate. This means that once the link is established data flows through the pipe at optimum speeds, giving you the best possible transfer rate. Since nothing traverses the router except XGate email and XWeb compressed web data, unwanted traffic is eliminated. This prevents surprise airtime bills caused by unmonitored and unwanted background computer traffic such as operating system and other software updates.

The RedPort Optimizer requires a subscription to either XGate satellite email or Iridium Mail & Web in order to function.

Optimizer runs on 12V and has an external battery which allows it to be used as a stand alone hotspot in remote locations. At only 4 x 3 inches, RedPort Optimizer is small and light enough to take anywhere.
