BGAN’s BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network) is the first mobile satellite service to deliver broadband data and   voice simultaneously through one device, to almost anywhere on the planet.

With the successful launch of the first and second Inmarsat-4 satellites, global satellite coverage is growing ever closer, with coverage now extended to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Indian sub-continent, most of Asia Pacific and Western Australia and the Americas.  The two I-4 satellites cover 85% of the world's land mass.

Based on IP technology, BGAN delivers data rates of up to 492 Kbps.  The service is accessed via a small, lightweight satellite terminal - about the size of a laptop - which is easy to carry, quick to set up and simple to use. You have SMS, Voicemail and ISDN capabilities

BGAN enables users to remotely access corporate networks using a secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection, to send emails, transfer files and access the internet, whilst making a telephone call at the same time.
Inmarsat's BGAN service is available on a global basis

Hughes 9201
The fastest of the BGAN terminals, the HNS 9201 allows you to simultaneously send and receive IP packet and circuit switched data via USB, Ethernet, ISDN and WLAN interfaces over the Inmarsat BGAN satellite network.

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 9201 offers a true alternative network that enables corporate teams to communicate their critical information - anywhere, anytime.

NeraWorldPro 1000

Half the size of a laptop and weighing less than 1kg, the NeraWorldPro 1000 meets the toughest demands for portability. Built for persistent travel and bumpy rides, the terminal is incredibly durable and works just as well in a dusty desert as in a humid rain forest.

The NeraWorldPro 1000 offers high speed data and voice simultaneously through one terminal. Over a standard IP connection, it connects at up to 384kbps in the receive direction, and up to 240kbps when sending. Streaming data is available at 32kbps and 64kbps for both send and receive. The terminal connects to a laptop computer via a USB port or over a Bluetooth wireless connection.

The unique feature of the NeraWorldPro 1000 is its separate antenna, attached by cable, which allows the user to position the antenna on a window sill while working indoors. Voice is via a custom Nera handset or via a Bluetooth handset.

NeraWorldPro 1010 
Please take note that the NeraWorldPro 1010 BGAN is now available. The only difference between the two models is the 1010 has an Ethernet Interface as opposed to the USB on the 1000.
