What makes Wi-Fi for Boats system better?
# 1... New MIMO technology: 15 dbi High Gain Omnidirectional MIMO Antenna with Ubitiqui's Rocket M2 MIMO Router greatly increases Wi-FI range and connection reliability.
New IEEE 802.11n MIMO technology, better know as Wi-Fi "n", has become increasing prevalent in Wi-Fi Hot Spots through out the world. However there were no High Gain Omni Directional MIMO antennas available. We worked with our antenna manufacturer to produce a 15 dbi High Gain MIMO Omni antenna for us. This new MIMO antenna with Ubitiqui's updated Rocket 2M MIMO wireless router provide increased range, more reliable connections and increased throughput. Even if the shore side equipment is not using MIMO technology, using MIMO technology on your boat increases connection reliability by combining multi-path signals to increase signal strength rather than filtering them out.
# 2 ... You cannot connect to what you cannot hear!
A strong transmitter alone will not connect further.
Our 15 dbi Omni Directional Antenna has three times (3X) the ability to capture weak signals than typical 8-10 dbi antennas found on other systems. Wi-Fi is a two way conversation. Just because you can shout loud does not mean you can hear a person whispering to you. Our antenna gives you the ability to select stations that you would not otherwise receive and make reliable connections at much greater distances.
# 3... New AirGateway Hot Spot included with all systems.
Connect all of your onboard devices: Computer Navigation Systems, Windows Computers, Apple Computers, Notebooks, Tablets, iPads, iPods, iPhones, Smartphones and Android Devices all to your Wi-Fi Antenna.
# 4... Standard Power Over Ethernet Cat5e TCP/IP network cable.
The connection from our antenna is a standard TCP/IP network connection using inexpensive Cat5e network cable, not performance and distance limited Coax or USB. The Cat5e network connection also provides power to the antenna allowing you complete freedom to mount our high gain antenna in the best possible location on your boat with absolutely zero cable loss.
# 5... Being a good neighbor.
Using our high gain antennas, our transmitter does not have to be turned up to full power to enable reliable long distance connections. When a powerful transmitter is running at full power it introduces interference to others and distortion in its own signal as well. With our high gain antennas we are able to set the transmission power much less than maximum power and still connect at great distances. This gives you a cleaner and clearer signal providing you with faster, more reliable connections while at the same time not overpowering your neighbors equipment allowing all to share the Internet.
# 6... It's about good design.
Long distance Wi-Fi is about good equipment and good design, especially when connecting to low power signals such as may be provided by a local bar, restaurant or home system. Balancing the transmit power and sensitive receiver in the New Ubitiqui Rocket M2 with our New 802.11n MIMO 15dbi gain Omni Antenna provides greater connection distances and more reliable connections.
I take great pride in creating products and providing equipment that will give you unmatched performance regardless of the exaggerated claims I read on the Internet. With 30 years experience in technology and networks, I build, sell and support Wi-Fi systems for boats that I know work, and work well.
That is what makes Wi-Fi for Boats better!
I look forward to helping you with your Wi-Fi system.
