The burgeoning requirements for internet access in commercial shipping has put increased pressure on owners and operators to provide high-speed internet access available to crews and guests on board, but the use of VSAT has proved an expensive and relatively slow solution.
The Hubba X4 Go and Duo models offer an affordable alternative to the expensive satellite broadband. The routers are most suited for commercial marine activity and can provide up to 100Mbps download speeds, supporting wi-fi access to multiple mobile devices.
The Hubba X4 Duo is the enterprise class model and has the benefit of dual SIM capability which provides two switchable SIM card slots for greater flexibility and convenience when operating across international borders and multiple mobile networks. This marine class router can easily integrate to onboard networks requiring VPN and also has a VSAT failover function.
The Hubba X4 is our standard class unit with a single SIM slot. It’s suitable for small commercial vessels with lower data usage. The router is capable to support up to 32 Wi-Fi devices by generating a Wi-Fi hotspot it allows wired network connectivity as well via an RJ45 port.
Both Hubba X4s feature the high powered MIMO external antenna that creates its own Wi-Fi hotspot, making them an ideal solution for offshore vessels, commercial ships, ferries, and wind farm support vessels. The antenna units are IP67 waterproof rated and supplied with a mounting bracket.
