EXPLORER 540: Dual Mode BGAN M2M & Cellular Terminal

COBHAM SATCOM

Network Logo

The EXPLORER 540 is the world's first and only BGAN M2M terminal designed to operate on both Inmarsat BGAN and cellular 2G/3G/GPRS networks.  This terminal is suitable for remote monitoring and works in combination with many M2M solutions.

As the only BGAN M2M terminal to offer dual mode operation, EXPLORER 540 provides flexibility and M2M data communication cost-control, as it ensures the most cost-effective communication service can be chosen depending on location or application.

Securing continuity of M2M IP data transfer, which often originates in hard to reach, remote locations, dual-mode operation delivers significant failover capabilities with automatic switching between BGAN and cellular networks.

For organisations transferring critical real-time data within their M2M networks, EXPLORER 540’s dual mode can provide unmatched service availability.

EXPLORER 540 features a rugged design that supports reliable and secure IP data in even the harshest environments.

At just 20 x 20 cm and 1.6 KG in weight, the EXPLORER 540 is the smallest and lightest BGAN M2M terminal.  The durable casing and a dust and water resistant IP66 design makes it the perfect choice for any kind of fixed installation.
