Inmarsat’s BGAN service provides simultaneous voice and broadband data communications globally from small and lightweight satellite terminals.
Connect your BGAN terminal to a portable PC or smart device using Standard IP to access the internet for applications such as web browsing and email, or choose from a range of guaranteed Streaming IP rates to meet all your data, voice and video needs.
BGAN is accessible via a range of small, lightweight satellite terminals, which provide performance options to suit different operational needs.
The smallest terminals are designed to suit single users. The larger terminals 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.
Simultaneous voice and data
A single BGAN terminal provides simultaneous voice and broadband data up to 492kbps, enabling you to access the internet or send email, and talk on the phone at the same time.
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.
BGAN meets military and government requirements for security and supports all major VPN products and encryption standards.
Supporting the latest IP services, as well as traditional circuit-switched voice and data, BGAN integrates seamlessly with corporate networks and legacy applications.
Streaming IP and BGAN X-Stream
BGAN supports a range of guaranteed on-demand Streaming IP rates from 32kbps to at least 384kbps, and up to 450kbps with BGAN X-Stream.
Easy to use
No technical expertise or training is needed to set up and use BGAN. All terminals are plug and play, so you can go online within minutes.
Most vehicular terminals comprise a roof-mountable antenna and in-car unit. Antennas are compact, relatively lightweight and discreet, so as not to draw attention.
The vehicular antenna can be permanently or magnetically mounted to the roof of any suitable vehicle, be it a truck, bus or recreational vehicle (RV).
