Satellite System Management

Manage Your Satellite System

Today, many ships run multiple satellite systems. RedPort customers use our routers to manage multiple VSAT terminals, manage a VSAT, or failover from it, to Inmarsat FleetBroadband or Iridium OpenPort, or run multiple FleetBroadband or OpenPort devices to double throughput. There are as many solutions as there are installations.

  • Failover
  • Load-balancing
  • Quality of Service
  • Out of Band Management
  • Remote VPN Access
  • Logging and Reporting

Routing and Logging

Satellite RouterCreate and manage even the most complex networks with enterprise-grade features for complete satellite routing and networking.

Firewall & Filtering

Satellite FirewallSatellite airtime is precious – with FleetBroadband or Iridium OpenPort you pay by megabyte, and with VSAT you pay a premium for throughput. RedPort Firewall Routing can routinely reduce data demands by a factor of ten – a 90% reduction in data – providing a better user experience for everyone on board, and a lower overall satellite airtime bill.

  • Firewall filtering by MAC or TCP/IP address and/or port number provide advanced controls as well as Skype and Adobe Flash blocking; Blocking by source or destination IP address
  • Port forwarding
  • Inbound NAT Scheduling
  • White/Black list
  • Traffic Shaping
  • Quality of Service
  • Least-cost Routing (preferential port usage)

With RedPort filtering you can whitelist and blacklist sites and services to cut down on the type of internet activity that consumes the most bandwidth and slows down your satellite system.

Remote Access
