The Optimizer wXa-122 is the new generation wifi router & gateway after the wXa-112.
It enables access to many communication networks (additional equipment required) :
- access to satellite networks through a satellite handset with a valid satellite contract
- access to shore public wifi hotspots through the "Halo wifi extender" (a wifi amplifier with antenna than can reach several miles - available here)
- access to the boat NMEA0183 network, to broadcats data over wifi to tablets, smartphones or PC/Mac
The Optimizer is also a router, enabling several (up to 256) simultaneous connections on the available network. So if you have guests on-board, they can enjoy email and websurfing like you when you are connected to shore wifi for example.
The wXa-122 is very small (like a pack of cigarette : 10 x 7 cm) and runs on 12V.
Please note that it comes only with a US-type wall-plug transformer (110/220V > 12V). However it is possible to cut the cable for permanent installation on the 12V network onboard. Alternatively we offer this cigarette adapter cable.
Produit très simple à mettre en route
et documentation très claire et précise.
La mise en route s’est déroulée sans aucun problème, et la connexion au mobile iridium 9555 a été quasi immédiate. Le livre de Francis Fustier “ prendre la météo par téléphone satellite” est effectivement un complément utile.
