Inmarsat BGAN Applications:



Emergency Response




In a standard office environment, broadband access is now taken for granted. But for those whose jobs take them away to more remote locations, accessing the corporate network or the internet often means a return to slow dial-up connections, or worse still, no access at all.

With Inmarsat’s BGAN service, you can set up a broadband mobile office in minutes–wherever you are on the planet. Delivered via the most advanced commercial communications satellites ever launched, BGAN provides affordable, mobile broadband services at speeds up to half a megabit in a highly compact, easy to use form.Journalists, government personnel, aid workers, and other established users of mobile satellite communications welcome the superior performance and lighter load of BGAN.

But other users, such as engineers, consultants, and project managers–anyone, in fact, who wants dependable, secure broadband access when working in locations with unreliable or no telecoms networks–can now reap the benefits of affordable mobile satellite communications.


Global coverage

BGAN is available across the globe, with the exception of the extreme polar regions, providing connectivity wherever your business or operations take you.

BGAN services are delivered via the Inmarsat-4 network, with 99.9 per cent satellite and ground network availability and an operational lifespan expected into the 2020s.

The HNS 9201 combines ultimate performance with an extremely rugged design. It is one of the highest bandwidth terminals in the range and supports WLAN connectivity, in addition to other standard data interfaces. It is ideal for either single users using bandwidth-hungry applications, such as live video, or for small teams which need to set up a temporary office with high-speed connectivity to access standard data applications.

The HUGHES HNS-9201 Broadband Satellite IP Terminal and WLAN Access Point is your gateway to global communications via Inmarsat BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network). The Hughes HNS 9201 allows you to simultaneously send and receive IP packet and circuit switched data via USB, Ethernet, ISDN and WLAN interfaces. Which means handheld wireless devices (iPhone, Windows Mobile 5-6, Blackberry etc.) or any other device with wireless capabilities can be connected to the HNS-9201 via the terminals ability to automatically grant an IP address and internet access once a device has properly connected to the Wi-Fi and entered the WEP key. So you get to a new site, bust out the HNS-9201 BGAN, register with the Inmarsat network and then everyone with a wireless enabled device can connect for email and internet access. The HNS-9201 enables multiple teams to utilize the terminal while using very little data as mobile devices inherently consume much less bandwidth then laptops.

The Hughes HNS-9201 BGAN Terminal is easy to use in Semi-Fixed and Portable Environments. The rugged design of the 9201 allows the terminal to be installed outside in extreme weather conditions for extended periods of time. Multiple user support allows your entire team to share a single 9201 simultaneously, providing the site with a broadband local area network. The terminal’s small size and weight allows you to easily move it from site to site and be connected again within minutes. When you’re at a remote site, sending and receiving the information you need is critical. The Inmarsat BGAN service, together with the 9201, offers a true alternative network that enables corporate teams to communicate their critical information—anywhere, anytime.
