Wave WiFi specializes in packaging together connectivity gear for boats, yachts and even RVs.
In their long range Wi-Fi extending lineup, they offer:
- Rogue Wave - Roof-mounted CPE utilizing the Ubiquiti Bullet M2 as the underlying CPE hardware, integrated with a router. Intended for consumer boats & RVs.
- Rogue Wave Pro - The same gear as the Wave, but in a ruggedized form factor.
- Rogue Reach - Specially designed mounting system for RVs
Wave WiFi repackages a 8.5 dBi omni antenna with a Ubiquiti Bullet, but their firmware is proprietary to make the user experience easier. And their gear comes in a choice of 2.4 Ghz or dual band Wi-Fi. Wave WiFi gear can be used with your existing router or PC.
