Maryville, TN and Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
SatStation, providers of satellite phone docking kits and accessories, and RedPort Global, the leader in advancing satellite data speeds and services, today announced the world’s first Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro Docking Kit with an embedded RedPort Optimizer satellite firewall and Wi-Fi router. The SatStation Isatphone Pro with Wi-Fi Dock and Antenna lets customers using a compatible data service easily access email, web, weather, social media, blogging and GPS tracking services via the Inmarsat satellite network.
“The Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro is one of the world’s most popular satellite phones, particularly in the maritime and vehicular markets where docking kits are needed and data is in high demand,” said CJ Webber, CEO of SatStation. “By partnering with RedPort, our newest dock gives these customers easy Wi-Fi access to data services over the devices they already own – Wi-Fi enabled computers, tablets and smartphones, including Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac, Linux, Apple iOS and Google Android devices.”
The SatStation IsatPhone Wi-Fi Dock includes an embedded RedPort Optimizer board to work with a wide range of satellite email services including RedPort XGate, Satphone.Me, OCENS Mail, GMPCS SpeedMail and others. All of these services offer satellite-optimized email, web browsing, weather, blogging and social media services including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Additionally, GPS Tracking and NMEA repeating services are available via the dock.
The dock also provides a high-quality external antenna, ensuring maximum signal quality for reliability and convenience.
“The IsatPhone Pro uses Inmarsat’s GSPS data service, with stated speeds of 2.4 KBps, making un-optimized data connections difficult with modern devices. RedPort hardware and software let IsatPhone users access all the services we’ve all come to rely upon when traveling,” said Dr. Luis Soltero, CTO of RedPort Global. “We are pleased to be working with SatStation to extend RedPort Optimizer functions to the high-quality, affordable SatStation dock.”
