Optimizer Premier For Data

Optimizer Premier provides unlimited firewall, filtering, routing, PIN-code creation, and local GPS repeating. It works with RedPort Mail service for premium access to accelerated email and web compression, as well as GPS tracking via RedPort Tracking or any GsatTrack-based service.
Because Optimizer Premier also re-broadcasts available compatible GSM and long-range Wi-Fi signals, its powerful data controls (including PIN-codes!) can be used with networks other than the primary satellite connections.

Satellite Web-Compression

Optimizer Premier for VoIP

The voice capabilities of Optimizer Premier allow for unlimited multi-VoIP (unlimited extensions), conversion from VoIP to circuit-switch, and some of the best compression rates on the planet: 15 minutes of talk time per MB. Because of the PIN-code capabilities of the router, PIN-codes can be created for crew, passengers, work teams, and guests for both data or voice calls.
Unlike traditional satellite airtime plans where only one outgoing call can be made at a time, Optimizer Premier allows for 4 simultaneous outgoing calls over most satellite broadband terminals.

Optimizer Premier's Raison d'Etre: Automatic Failover

With automatic failover configured, Optimizer Premier will automatically switch between available networks to give you the fastest, cheapest connectivity available to you at that time. Users can be connected to long-range Wi-Fi (say at a marina), pull away from shore and failover to GSM, and then finally failover to satellite once completely out of the reach of terrestrial networks.
Optimizer Premier has ports for up to 2 satellite connections, in addition to GSM and long-range Wi-Fi, so failover can be configured to balance between two different satellite connections.
Best of all? You can configure load-balancing and least-cost routing between the failover options, so you can always be assured to keep your data usage in check and under control.
