4GXtream is our latest, premium LTE (cellular) internet access on board product with a NMEA 2000 interface. It ships as a complete package with dual external antennas, deck mounting hardware and cabling. Alternative antenna mounts are available as options.
Using MIMO technology and two external wide band LTE antennas, it offers fast connectivity at up to 300 MBs (network dependent). It has a built in dual band wifi router supporting multiple connections, dual SIM slots (with auto fail over if required), built in GPS (for anchor alarm & tracking applications) as well as an NMEA 2000 interface for navigation and instrument data connectivity and wireless interfacing. There’s also a Bluetooth interface for future connectivity applications.
4G Xtream also has an NMEA 2000 interface so that NMEA 2000 navigation data can be made available for apps on smartphones, tablets, iPads and PCs.
This allows all NMEA 2000 data as well as internet data to be sent to popular iOS and Android apps and navigation software such as Navionics, iSailor, Weather4D, SailGrib, iNavX, TimeZero, OpenCPN and more.
It will sit alongside our existing 4G Connect Pro as a premium product and is ideal for use on large yacht, workboats, tugs and commercial ships where reliable, low cost coastal internet and in port connectivity is required. 4G Xtream features independent dual band (2.4 & 5GHz) wifi for interconnection to mobile devices. This also provides the connectivity for NMEA data so apps on mobile devices can utilise the boats navigation and instrumentation data.
For external hi-power wifi (to access shoreside hotspots) our WiFi booster antenna is recommended which connects to the WAN port. 4GXtream can then act as a router for this connection and allow the user to switch from wifi to LTE.

Configuration is very simple. Just insert the SIM cards. The 4GXtream has two standard SIM slots and it is possible to fit two SIMs from two different network operators. By default, the 4GXtream will query the SIM that is installed and automatically select the APN settings from its internal database.
However, it is very important that you “lock down” your wireless network, with your own network name (SSID) and wireless password. This task only takes a couple of minutes.
