Hughes Creates Combined Portable BGAN Terminal with Inmarsat
[Via Satellite 05-05-2015] Hughes Network Systems has released a portable BGAN terminal for communications-on-the-move (COTM) applications. The Hughes 9211-HDR docks with a Class 10 or Class 11 vehicle mounted active tracking antenna for BGAN COTM enabled through Inmarsat. Targeted for media, government, emergency responders and remote workers, the device can connect at background IP speeds of more than 400 kbps in both transmit and receive, while being used as a portable or on-the-move application.
“As we continue to evolve and enhance our BGAN service, we anticipate a broad range of new applications that the 9211-HDR will enable, which will add significant value for our customers around the world,” said Greg Ewert, president of enterprise at Inmarsat.
