The OCENS Sidekick Satellite Wi-Fi Router transforms your Wi-Fi-less satellite phone into a powerful internet communication device with a single, simple connection.
With the Sidekick, you can use your smartphones, tablets, and computers to access weather, email, messaging, and more over your existing satellite phone.
OCENS software is designed for optimized communication through the Sidekick with the Iridium, Inmarsat, Globalstar or MSAT satellite networks. With a simple press of the ‘Connect’ button in an OCENS app, you’ll auto-dial through the Sidekick, connect to the satellite network, access email, weather data, position reports, text messaging, web browsing and more, and then automatically disconnect.
The Sidekick also allows you to expand access to the greater internet while lowering the risk of slow speeds or costly connections. Precision administrative controls allow you to define and restrict access for additional IP addresses, domains, and ports. Through these rigid security settings, the Sidekick offers greater connectivity while denying access to bandwidth and dollar-consuming data hogs.
Our broadband FleetOne, FleetBroadband, and OpenPort customers can also use the Sidekick to submit automated positioning reports to the OCENS SnapTrack (www.ocens.com/snaptrack) vessel tracking service. SnapTrack permits individual and group tracking and private messaging.
