WHY USE REDPORT XGATE SATELLITE
EMAIL AND WEB BROWSING

SAVES YOU TONS ON DATA USAGE

XGate is the easiest and fastest way to check and send email while on the water or in remote locations. Without XGate, connecting to data over a satellite phone can be difficult: uncompressed email and web-browsing over a slow satellite connection means long wait times, dropped connections, and expensive airtime at the end. Furthermore, connecting a mobile device or laptop up to the data feed created by a satellite phone often requires complicated setups, driver compatibility issues, and software. Lastly, getting satellite to work with iOS, Android, Mac, Linux, and some Windows systems is often impossible.


XGate solves all these problems and delivers unbeatable satellite communications. Best of all, XGate works with either a dedicated email address for maximum security and performance or your existing email services like Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo! Mail, or your corporate mail service. All easy to use and all while saving up to 95% on valuable satellite airtime.

HOW IT WORKS

SAVES YOU VALUABLE REVENUE ON DATA USAGE

RedPort XGate is your one stop for saving you money on your data usage. Whether you are working on your own, with a small crew, or have a large number of employees all using your company's satellite data you can save yourself the time and trouble of having large bills coming in from expensive satellite data usage.

SIMPLE

WORKS BY SAVING YOU MONEY

Faster. Cheaper. Better.

XGate uses only 5% of the data of a standard email program, on average. That means savings of up to 95% on satellite airtime costs compared to using regular email without XGate. Faster, cheaper airtime means more usage in the long run, because you get so much more for your money. These compression savings mean that a data transfer that would take 60 minutes or more over a standard Iridium connection would only take 3 minutes with XGate.

XGate “BigMail” saves airtime dollars by allowing users to limit large file sizes. By setting a filter, you will receive a notice when a “BigMail” arrives through XGate with the subject line of the email, and the size. At that point you can choose to download it over your satellite connection, or save it on the server until you have access to another connection.

Customizable Email To Fit Your Needs

XGate includes an XGate email address, but you can use your own familiar email address and client (such as Outlook or Apple Mail). There are even options to set the send and receive addresses so others see whatever email address you would like to show them.

Keep Connected With XGate

Update friends and family on LinkedIn and Twitter right through XGate. Allow friends and family to follow adventures in real time, right as you experience them. You can even post pictures (and benefit from the airtime savings when XGate compresses them down).
