Renting the BGAN Explorer 510 Terminal

The EXPLORER 510 satellite terminal is a global WiFi hotspot with Internet speeds of up to 464 Kbps to any in-range wireless device such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. What makes the 510 different from other BGAN terminals is it includes smartphone integration. The Explorer Control App gives total control over the 510, such as displaying signal strength, overall usage (in Megabytes), and allowing you to send or receive texts (including using your iPhone iMessage or other texting program). It also turns your smartphone into a satellite phone to place or receive phone calls from anyone in the world. The 510 is the most portable BGAN rental on the market and surprisingly one of the least expensive. It is ideal for all applications in remote or urban locations that require Internet and phone anywhere.
