Inmarsat BGAN Terminals

Inmarsat BGAN is accessible via a range of small, lightweight satellite terminals, which provide performance options to suit different operational needs. They can be used both indoors and outdoors, being robust enough to withstand challenging environments and extremes of temperature.


The smallest terminals (Wideye Sabre, Explorer 300, 500, etc.) are designed to suit single users, for whom portability is a key consideration.

The larger terminals (Hughes 9201, 9202, Explorer 700, etc.) offer a WLAN capability and are particularly suitable for small teams that need to establish a temporary office for an extended period. They are also suitable for users requiring higher bandwidth to enable applications such as live broadcasting.

Vehicular systems (Hughes 9350, 9450, Explorer 325, 727, etc.) comprise an interior terminal and discreet tracking antenna, which is mounted on the vehicle roof. They provide access to voice and high-speed data while ‘on the move’.
