What makes Wi-Fi for Boats system better?
# 1 ... Wi-Fi for Boats connects Ubitiqui's Rocket M2 Wi-Fi Radio to our High Gain 15 dbi MIMO Wi-Fi Antenna.
Why use such a high gain antenna? Because you can not connect to what you can not hear. Our antenna is three times (X) more sensitive than the commonly used 8 or 9 dbi antennas on other products.
Our High Gain 15 dbi MIMO Antenna has an exceptional 23o beam width providing stable signal strength under all conditions. For detailed information, see the antenna plot on the Specifications page.
# 2... New MIMO technology in both the Rocket M2 and 15 dbi gain Omni Antenna greatly increases Wi-FI range and connection reliability.
New for 2013 we have updated our antenna and wireless routers to IEEE 802.11n (Wi-Fi n) MIMO technology. This increases performance, range, and throughput compared to traditional WiFi systems.
# 3... New AirGateway Onboard Hot Spot included in all systems starting in June 2014.
Connect not only a fixed computer but also all of you Wi-Fi enabled devices: iPad Navigation Systems, Notebooks, iPhones, iPods, iPhones, Android devices and smartphones to your Wi-Fi Antenna.
# 4... We connect our equipment using standard TCP/IP over Cat5e network cable.
The connection from our antenna to your computer is a standard TCP/IP network connection using inexpensive Cat5e network cable, not performance and distance limited Coax or USB. The Cat5e network connection allows you complete freedom to mount our high gain antenna in the best possible location on your boat with absolutely zero cable loss.
# 4... The myth that a strong transmitter alone will always connect further.
Wi-Fi is a two way conversation. Just because you can shout loud does not mean you can hear a person whispering to you. All marine systems transmit at the same maximum power. The real difference with Wi-Fi for Boats is our 15 dbi MIMO Omni Directional Antenna with three (3) times the ability to capture weak signals that typical 8-10 dbi antennas found on other systems. This gives you the ability to select stations that you would not otherwise receive and make reliable connections at much greater distances.
# 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.
And that is what makes Wi-Fi for Boats better!
I take great pride in creating our 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 sell and support Wi-Fi systems for boats that I know work, and work well.
I look forward to helping you with your Wi-Fi system.
