The world’s most cost-effective, all-IP BGAN machine-to-machine satellite terminal with exceptionally low power consumption.
The Hughes 9502 BGAN Terminal is a high-speed satellite terminal that uses the BGAN M2M service, and was designed for remote M2M or SCADA monitoring and control. The Hughes terminal delivers affordable, global, end-to-end IP data connectivity enabling applications in industry sectors such as environmental monitoring, SmartGrid, pipeline monitoring, compressor monitoring, well site automation, video surveillance, and out-of-band management to primary site communications.
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.
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.
