Wave WiFi’s line of Mobile Broadband Routers are cost-effective broadband source selectors suitable for offshore cruising boats, sport fisherman, or megayachts. The MBR-500 can handle up to four input sources such as WaveWiFi’s own Rogue Pro DB and your Fleet One, Iridium Pilot, Certus, Fleet Broadband, HughesNet, or mini-VSAT system. The MBR-550 model also handles up to four input sources PLUS an integrated global band LTE cellular modem for connecting to the Internet. Both models also include a built-in 300mbps WiFi access point and at least one ethernet LAN port.  Use the MBR-550 cellular model with an additional external cellular antenna, or in conjunction with a cellular booster, to bring cellular Internet to the boat while underway miles offshore.

All of the WaveWiFi Mobile Broadband Routers manage connections with an ‘Auto-Failover’ mode or manually through a simple click in the web UI. Set a preferred connection in the simple setup menu such as your WaveWiFi Rogue unit, the cellular connection or satellite. If that connection loses Internet access, the Broadband Router seamlessly connects you to the next available, prioritized source.  You can also set maximum data usage for a particular user, computer, or Internet connection per day, month, etc and the router will block access or automatically switch to an alternate Internet connection that hasn’t used it’s data allotment.

The Mobile Broadband Router is the central control element for a robust Internet communications system. It is easy to use, with no special skills necessary. Like all WaveWiFi products, the Broadband Router’s web-based functionality is built in; there is no software to install.

Connections are managed through WaveWiFi’s web-based interface. The intuitive interface shows at a glance which broadband sources are active. A simple mouse click allows switching between active sources.

Advanced features include WaveWiFi’s Access Management Control which is invaluable for metered sources, such as satellite and cellular. This means you can create a customizable login page (Captive Portal), generate individual ‘user login codes’ for guests and crew, monitor and control per user bandwidth as well as configure port forwarding.

These models are also capable of supporting ‘Guest Networks’. This means that any devices connected to the Guest Network will not have access to the MBR 500 or 550’s manage page. They will only be able to use the data provided by the MBR series router and not be able to manipulate it.

Wave WiFi Technology

wave wifi long range wifi cellular router for boats rvs and yachts
Each component of all Wave WiFi’s products is designed and engineered for the marine environment. All Wave WiFi products support 802.11 b/g/n thereby exhibiting high receive sensitivity and transmitter output power meaning Internet connections are possible up to several miles from a high powered, access point (HotSpot).

Wave WiFi products offer outstanding performance because of the proprietary firmware technology embedded in each unit. The web-based firmware permits the computer user to scan for public access points (HotSpots) and provides a detailed diagnosis of each HotSpot’s relative signal strength. The user can select a HotSpot that will provide Internet connectivity and connect to that access point.

This same technology allows the user to access WEP, WPA and WPA2 encrypted access points. A graphical interface allows the user to see the signal-to-noise ratio in real-time. For the first-time user, a built-in ‘Help’ system is readily available by simply holding your mouse over the appropriate question mark.

The Wave WiFi EC-Series products are Ethernet Converters (EC) allowing the Wave WiFi unit to be directly connected to all Ethernet enabled devices resulting in flawless performance as a standalone system or integrated into the vessel’s network. Because Wave WiFi’s proprietary firmware technology is built-in, there is no software to install, no USB restrictions and no power-robbing USB connections.

Now Wave WiFi’s EC-AP-ER and EC-AP-HP feature ‘MIMO’ (Multiple Input/Multiple Output) technology for the built-in access point (AP). The AP provides a powerful 500mW b/g/n MIMO wireless signal. This means multiple computers and wireless devices throughout the vessel have excellent wireless connectivity.

What is MIMO?

Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology uses Multi-path (when wireless signals ‘bounce’ off of objects and arrive at the receiver at different times) to improve wireless performance.

MIMO technology takes a single data stream and breaks it down into several separate data streams and sends it out over multiple antennas. This provides redundancy and results in:

  • Increased data throughput and range by utilizing multiple antennas
  • Improved link reliability and less fading than a single antenna system
  • Multiple data streams provide alternatives for line-of-sight issues
  • By transmitting multiple data streams at the same time, wireless capacity is increased

Today’s Wave WiFi products represent the on-going evolution of mobile WiFi and provide greatly enhanced performance and functionality for today’s WiFi dependent society.
