Optimizer makes satellite data easy – with the devices you already own. Optimizer is the original BYOD (Bring Your Own Devices) satellite hotspot – letting you access the services you need with the smartphones, tablets and computers you already have. Optimizer broadcasts your satellite data feed as a Wi-Fi hotspot, let you easily access email, web, weather and social media services, and even track your location.  Most importantly, its powerful firewall blocks all unwanted service to eliminate runaway satellite phone airtime bills.
