Not only does the device speed up data transfer it also comes with a built in firewall which will automatically block any unwanted traffic such as automatic updates which can cause satellite data costs to rocket. The WiFi capability enables you to access email and internet wirelessly via your Windows or Mac computer and a specially designed app also makes it possible on your iPhone, iPad or iPod.
The Optimizer is powered by an AC charger although 12V chargers and batteries are also available offering a variety of flexible power options when travelling whether it be by boat, vehicle or on foot! Using a satellite phone to send photos of your journey back home or update social networks such as Facebook and Twitter is now a realistic possibility thanks to the RedPort WiFi Optimizer.
