Optimizer broadcasts your satellite data feed via Wi-Fi for easy connectivity. Its powerful firewall blocks unwanted services to eliminate runaway satellite phone airtime bills.
With compatible satellite broadband terminals, Optimizer’s built in PBX lets you make and receive voice calls with all your devices.

phone data transfers: up to 15-20 times faster for email, and 3-5 times faster for
web browsing. Designed explicitly to make the most of the narrowband satellite phones
and terminals (like handheld satellite phones), the RedPort Optimizer uses
XGate compression data service to automatically dial, start and end data calls,
and eliminate the unnecessary demands common with most computing devices,
giving you automatic and complete access to the data feed.

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.
