BGAN Explorer 540 Dual BGAN and 3G M2M Terminal For Satellite Internet

Cobham BGAN Explorer 540


Cobham plans on releasing the brand new Explorer 540 for sale in early 2016.

The BGAN Explorer 540 is the first Explorer M2M terminal and the world’s first M2M terminal to operate on both BGAN and 3G cellular networks.

It’s also a full-featured BGAN class 2 terminal for satellite Internet connectivity anywhere within the Inmarsat coverage map.

When using the optional Explorer 3G modem, the BGAN Explorer 540 is turned into a true dual-mode terminal.

BGAN Explorer 540 Satellite Internet with 3G Failover

As the only BGAN M2M terminal to offer dual mode operation, Explorer 540 provides unique flexibility and M2M data communication cost-control, as it ensures the most cost-effective communication service can be chosen depending on location. Securing continuity of M2M IP data transfer, which often originates in hard to reach, remote locations, dual-mode operation delivers significant failover capabilities with the automatic switching between the BGAN network and the cellular network. For organisations transferring critical real-time data within their M2M networks, Explorer 540 M2M’s dual mode can provide unmatched service availability.

The Explorer 540 will be Inmarsat BGAN M2M Certified which includes no connection charges, free over-the-air software upgrades and all the BGAN M2M specific remote management features. The terminal will be Type Approved as a BGAN Class 2 terminal and well-suited for BGAN Link services as well.

The terminal weighs 1.6 kg and the size is only 20 x 20 cm making it the smallest and lightest BGAN M2M terminal. The durable casing and a dust and water resistant IP66 design makes the Explorer 540 the perfect choice for any kind of fixed outside installation. It comes with a pole-mount and like the other Explorer BGAN terminals it is simple to set up and operate.

Coverage Area for Inmarsat Airtime

The coverage area for Inmarsat airtime encompasses a large portion of the earth. Inmarsat’s satellites are geo-stationary above the earth’s equator and offer good coverage up to 70° latitude. Because the satellites are stationed above the equator, you may need to position your satellite phone’s antenna in the direction of the satellite from your location in order to get a signal.
