Today, satellite connectivity goes far beyond just voice calling. Email, social media, web browsing, and video are all available using a range of different mobile satellite solutions that can be set-up quickly, and used from virtually anywhere on earth. Whether it's a device that fits in your pocket or in your briefcase, these mobile, portable satellite solutions have never been easier to use, nor more reliable. With continuing innovations in hardware and software, the equipment you need to stay connected for email, web browsing, video and other data-intensive applications keeps getting lighter, more compact, and more easily deployed than ever before.
You can build your solution around how you and your team already work. Think of your satellite solution as a portable, go-anywhere office. Voice, SMS, email, and other Internet applications are all available with today’s mobile satellite terminals. Will you be on an oil rig, driving across a remote desert, or setting up your field headquarters in a disaster-struck region? Will you need multiple users accessing email? High definition image uploads? All of these things are possible with portable, easily deployed mobile equipment. Like satellite phones, these devices are built for the field, weather-resistant and rugged enough for any conditions.
The key is understanding your options, and then choosing the right equipment. Consider where you will need to be, how many users you will need to support, and what bandwidth will get the job done. In satellite comms, bandwidth is at a premium, so any steps you take to ratchet back on your data use can help. But whatever your data needs are, and wherever your location will be, the right mobile satellite internet solution is out there for you. Purchase your solution today and set up your go-anywhere office from wherever you need to go.
BGAN systems which operate on the Inmarsat constellation of equatorial, geosynchronous satellites. BGAN stands for “Broadband Global Area Network,” a system developed by Inmarsat to deliver broadband data speeds to terminal users around the world, with the exception of the north and south polar regions (see Inmarsat coverage map). Broadband speed is defined here as over 200 Kbps standard IP download, and depending on the device you have, BGAN IP speeds can reach up to 492 Kbps. For specialized IP video streaming applications, BGAN speeds can reach up to 650 Kbps, or with two units tethered, up to 1 Mbps, but these depend on the terminal model and service. BGAN devices are small, compact, and powerful: the fixed position, portable devices are typically the size of a laptop computer, and generally include phone, internet, SMS, fax, ISDN and streaming service for audio or video. These terminals require a fixed postion to maintain a connection with the an Inmarsat satellite, and cannot be operated while in motion.
