The world’s most advanced, all-IP, BGAN machine-to-machine satellite terminal with integrated antenna and highest IP-66 ingress protection industry rating for outdoor installation. Reliable, Compact, Affordable & Best in class.
The Hughes 9502 One Piece M2M BGAN is as an alternative to the external antenna version of the 9502, this product integrates the 9502 modem with a compact antenna to create a single-piece, integrated, rugged terminal to withstand the most extreme weather conditions. Providing reliable IP connectivity over the Inmarsat Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN), it includes backup and out-of-band management to primary site communications. This terminal is ideal for SCADA and unattended sites equipped for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications such as environmental monitoring, SmartGrid, pipeline monitoring/ control, compressor monitoring/control, well site automation and surveillance.
Its exceptional low power consumption (<1W idle) makes it possible to provide end-to-end IP connectivity to sites “off-the- grid”. This breakthrough enables “always on” IP connectivity to powerchallenged locations which rely upon solar-battery arrays with limited power budgets.
The new M2M service does not bill for overhead data related to establishing or reestablishing a connection to the BGAN satellite network, keeping service costs extremely lower than traditional BGAN services for low-bandwidth applications. This breakthrough provides end-to-end IP connectivity to power-challenged locations that rely upon solar battery arrays involving sensitive power budgets.
The Hughes 9502 may use Standard BGAN Service. There is a one-time $279.99 Activation Code Fee required. Over-Air Firmware Upgrades are no longer free (3 to 4 Megabytes).
The 9502 may not be switched back to using M2M service if upgraded to standard usage.
Installation is simplified as there is no need to remotely package the transceiver inside a standalone NEMA enclosure. A laptop is convenient for pointing the Hughes 9502, however it is not required. Many installations may be in awkward locations, such as on a pole or building side. In these cases, a pair of headphones use the audio port of the 9502 for and audible signal strength tone for pointing. We recommend the Huges 9502 be configured to operate with connected equipment prior to remote installation. So during installation, the only action required is mounting and pointing. Excellent for non-trained personnel, or for installers who don't wish to contend with a laptop.
The Hughes 9502 includes 10 meters of RF cabling, granting the user freedom to position the antenna remotely and away from the transceiver in complex installations while securing the SIM card inside a premise or enclosure to better protect against unauthorized use, theft, and vandalism.
Future firmware releases would be uncommon, meanwhile any such modem update will qualify for no charge over-the-air (OTA) upgrades saving customers time and money.

The Inmarsat network is also a global system and consists of 3 Geosynchronous (Stationary, or Fixed in one position) satellites set on the equator thousands of miles above the earth. Because of the fact that the satellites are GEO, or fixed satellites, which means that they do not move from their set position, whereas LEO satellites are constantly moving. This makes it so that the equipment needs to be pointed directly at the satellite to register on the network.
