Who Uses RedPort Aurora Iridium WiFi Terminal?
The RedPort Aurora is good for anyone who needs voice, data, or tracking services with a fixed satellite terminal. It is perfect for anyone who wants to use their smartphone, tablet, or computer via WiFi over satellite, or needs affordable, easy-to-install equipment.
Aurora for Satellite Communications At Sea
On the water, Aurora is a quantum leap improvement over other satellite phone options. It is simpler to install, loaded with features, and more convenient to use than other solutions. Most boaters install a handheld satellite phone, a docking station, an external antenna, an external antenna cable, and a WiFi router…and they still can’t use their smartphone to make voice calls over satellite.
Aurora gives you all of that capability, and more, for less money than you would spend on a comparable full handheld satellite phone setup.
Aurora for Satellite Communications On Land
On land, Aurora’s self-contained weather-proof dome and single Ethernet cable for power make installation easier and less expensive than fixed phones that require long runs of antenna cable and complicated network setup.
