XGate is the leading-edge data compression service for email, weather, web, and social media over a satellite phone. Not only does XGate deliver email and data quickly and efficiently over satellite networks, it saves the consumer valuable airtime dollars while simultaneously optimizing (and increasing) satellite airtime usage. Pair XGate Satellite Email Service with Optimizer WiFi Hotspot and Firewall to achieve the most compression, ease of use, and utility for your satellite phone connection.
Why Use RedPort XGate Satellite Email?
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 Mac, Linux, and some Windows systems is often impossible.
XGate and Optimizer work hand-in-hand to solve all these problems and deliver unbeatable satellite communications. All easy to use, all while saving up to 95% on valuable satellite airtime.
Mobile Devices + Satellite Phone
Working in tandem with RedPort Optimizer, XGate is the world?s first satellite email service to connect mobile devices to a satellite phone. From iOS mobile devices like iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad to any Android mobile device, and including any current Windows, Liunx, or
Mac computer ? XGate and Optimizer keep you connected.
RedPort XGate Satellite Services
It?s easy to get started. Just run XGate and it will do the rest ? set up a satellite phone connection, install drivers, and access your account. XGate also works with an IP-based satellite phone or terminal. This includes phones and terminals from all the major satellite providers like Iridium, Inmarsat, Thuraya, Globalstar, VSAT, and MSAT.
Fast, Compressed Satellite Phone Email ? Right Out of the Box
XGate provides all the benefits of a fully-featured email service ? right over a satellite feed. With XGate, emails can be read offline (saving airtime) and then, with a press of a button, XGate dials the satellite phone, makes the connection, and hangs up when it?s done. If the call drops (which can be a problem for some satellite phones in some regions), XGate can redial and simply pick up the data transfer where it left off. Only XGate also eliminates the back-and-forth of email protocols before using satellite airtime.
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.
