RedPort Global services work together with GMN webXaccelerator (wXa) satellite routers. Concurrent with the launch of RedPort Global services, GMN is launching 2 new wXa satellite routers.

GMN has received orders for over 700 webXaccelerator satellite routers.
By launching RedPort Global, GMN is offering new services including prepaid VOIP calling for passengers and crew morale, and email and web access for Apple iOS products including the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone products via Wi-Fi when used with the award-winning XGate satellite phone email acceleration service.
