4G Connect 2G/3G/4G Internet Access
4G Connect is a new 2G/3G/4G (LTE) internet access solution for use afloat. It utilises the latest MIMO technology with dual Antennas for fast, long range access and incorporates a full function wifi router so multiple devices can connect wirelessly. There is also a wired LAN port and WAN port – for connection to high power wifi devices or satellite modems.
The Standard model has built in Antennas which are fine on most fibreglass (GRP) hulled boats and will provide good performance when in port and close to shore. For carbon fiber, wooden or metal hulled vessels, or for boat owners that want the maximum possible range, we would recommend our 4GConnect Pro model with external high gain antennas.
4G Connect has an easy to use interface and it is SIM unlocked so users are free to use any cellular provider they choose. Users in Europe are recommended to utilize a Vodafone SIM as this provides excellent maritime performance.
Operation is simple – turn on, connect to the password protected wifi hotspot that 4G Connect creates and your device is online. Digital Yacht’s WL510 high power wifi solution can also be connected to the WAN port for a choice between hotspot wifi and 4G connectivity. iKommunicate can also connect to the LAN port providing boat NMEA data on the wifi network for use with navigation apps.
