Satellite Internet

Inmarsat’s Broadband Global Area Network – BGAN – is the world’s first mobile communications service of any kind to provide both voice and broadband data simultaneously through a single, truly portable device on a global basis.

It is also the first mobile communications service to offer guaranteed data rates on demand.

In a standard office environment, broadband access is now taken for granted.

But for those whose jobs take them away to more remote locations, accessing the corporate network or the Internet often means a return to slow dial-up connections, or worse still, no access at all.

With Inmarsat’s BGAN service, you can set up a broadband mobile office in minutes – wherever you are on the planet.

Delivered via the world’s largest and most sophisticated communications satellites, BGAN will provide affordable, mobile broadband services at speeds up to half a megabit in a highly portable, easy to use form.

Journalists, military personnel, aid workers and other established users of mobile satellite communications will welcome the superior performance and lighter load.

But other users, such as engineers, consultants and sales personnel – anyone, in fact, who wants dependable, secure broadband access when travelling in locations with unreliable or no telecoms networks – will now be able to reap the benefits of mobile satellite communications.

Global coverage
BGAN will deliver seamless network coverage across most of the world’s land mass. Users will be able to get broadband wherever they go – not just in major cities or at the airport. BGAN is initially accessible in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Coverage will be extended to North and South America, expected by mid 2006.

Simultaneous voice and broadband data
With a single BGAN device, you can access data applications at speeds up to half a megabit and make a phone call at the same time. In a world-first for mobile services, you can also select guaranteed data rates on demand, with a choice of data rates to suit your application requirements. And to ensure bandwidth availability, network capacity can be re-directed to areas of heavy usage.

Highly portable
BGAN terminals are compact, lightweight and can be carried as easily as a laptop – the smallest BGAN terminal weighs less than one kilo. A fully functional broadband mobile office can be set up and shut down in minutes.

Totally flexible
BGAN supports the latest IP services, as well as traditional circuit-switched voice and data. Integrating seamlessly with your corporate networks, it will support legacy applications while providing a smooth upgrade path to IP. There are terminals for single users and small teams, which can be connected to a laptop via a wired or wireless connection. And the user interface can be customized according to your requirements.

 BGAN service coverage

The above map depict's Inmarsat's expectations of coverage, but does not represent a guarantee of service. The availability of service at the edge of coverage areas fluctuates depending on various conditions. The launch of the F-3 satellite will be determined in due course.

BGAN terminals
BGAN is accessible via a range of small, lightweight satellite terminals, which provide performance options to suit different operational needs. Terminals can be connected quickly and easily to a laptop, or multiple laptops, via wired or wireless connections, including Bluetooth or WiFi, depending on your choice of terminal.

The smallest terminals are designed to suit single users, for whom portability is the primary concern. Larger terminals within the range offer higher bandwidth and are particularly suitable for small teams, who may need to establish temporary offices for longer periods. Terminals can be used indoors and outdoors, being robust enough to withstand challenging environments and extremes of temperature.

Trademark reliability
Inmarsat’s name is synonymous with reliable communications, given our responsibilities in providing maritime safety services. The network capacity of our new satellites is 16 times greater than before, delivering a massive boost to an already highly available network. And the whole system is backed by 24/7 customer support from our partner organizations.
