What makes Wi-Fi for Boats system better?
# 1... Ubitiqui Bullet M2 Station/Router and our exclusive 15 dbi High Gain Omnidirectional Antenna greatly increases Wi-FI range and connection reliability.
IEEE 802.11n MIMO technology, better know as Wi-Fi "n", is now the standard through out the world. Wi-Fi for Boats System couples Ubitiqui's Bullet M2 MIMO Station/Router with our exclusive 15 dbi High Gain Onmidirectonal Antenna to 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.
# 2 ... You cannot connect to what you cannot hear!
A strong transmitter alone will not connect further.
Our exclusive 15 dbi Omni Directional Antenna have 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 have a strong transmitter does not mean you can hear weak or distant stations. 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 antenna, 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 Bullet M2 with our 15dbi gain Omni Antenna provides greater connection distances and more reliable connections.
# 7... Expectations in todays 2016 Wi-Fi environment.
When I first started selling Wi-Fi Systems for boats in 2003 you could almost always find a local "open" Wi-Fi signal and be able to connect to at great distances. In todays connected world there is a tremendous amount of interference caused by all the competing Wi-FI signals. In many congested areas you may find it difficult to connect over even moderate distances. Aboard Easy Living I now use a mixture of Wi-FI and Cellular Data connections while cruising the ICW.
With 30 years experience in technology and networks, I build, sell and support Wi-Fi systems that will give you unmatched performance in todays world.
I look forward to helping you with your Wi-Fi system.
