at once on one single map, set zone alarms and alerts, and see vessel history in one flexible interface.

The Right Router for Every Installation
RedPort Optimizer Voice
Powerful, Affordable, VoIP and Data Satellite Airtime Control
The Optimizer Voice will cease to be sold as of December 18, 2020. We recommend considering the Optimizer Personal or Optimizer Premier as an alternative. We will continue to support existing hardware until December 18, 2022 and RedPort services on the Optimizer Voice through December 18, 2023
Optimizer Voice combines a powerful satellite data router with voice capabilities, including a full PBX, a prepaid VoIP service with PIN codes, and the ability to carry up to four simultaneous calls over most satellite broadband terminals.
More than just a voice device, RedPort Optimizer Voice gives you everything you need to create a local voice and data network with your satellite device.
Manage your usage, protect against accidental airtime usage, accelerate your data speeds, enable email and web compression, track your location via GPS, and provide routing, filtering and security. (Some fees may apply).
Optimizer Voice as Data Router
Optimizer Voice provides unlimited firewall, filtering, routing, 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.
Optimizer Voice for VoIP
The voice capabilities of Optimizer Voice 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 Voice allows for 4 simultaneous outgoing calls over most satellite broadband terminals.
