Hughes unveils class 2 portable BGAN terminal



Hughes Network Systems, a global provider of broadband
satellite networks and services, announced the launch of its new 9202 Class 2
portable terminal.



Fully compatible for operation over Inmarsat’s global
BGAN satellite service, the Hughes 9202 is the only Class 2 portable BGAN
terminal with built-in, multi-user WiFi access and a full 64 kbps ISDN data



“Our Hughes 9202 is a fresh, feature-packed product
in the BGAN Class 2 space,” said Graham Avis, vice president and general
manager of Hughes San Diego.



“It combines future-proof capabilities such as being
extended L-band ready, with tried and true standards of WiFi, ISDN, and analog
phone/fax support all in a portable, rugged package, making it superior to the
competition in all key categories,” Avis added.



Building on the success of the Hughes
9201 Class 1 BGAN terminal, the Hughes 9202 is the world’s smallest Class 2
BGAN terminal on the market, and is ideal for government and non-government
organization (NGO) personnel such as first responders, public safety and mobile
health care workers, as well as remote personnel in the utility, oil and gas,
forestry, and telecommunications industries.



The only commercial-grade Class 2 terminal available with
a weather rating of IP55 (enclosure protected against dust and water jets), the
9202 incorporates a built-in RJ11 connection for voice and fax service, and is
extended L-band ready.



Users can connect at IP broadband speeds up to 464 kbps,
taking advantage of built-in, multi-user WiFi access and automatic context
activation (ACA) including the ability to transmit SMS messages via the
integrated user interface (IUI) without requiring a connected laptop, PDA, or
other device.



Hughes Network Systems recently announced that it has been awarded a
contract with Iseyco Ecuador, a major systems integrator and reseller in
Ecuador, to supply its HN System, including a 9-meter earth station and 1500
remote terminals.
