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.
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.
