The Hughes 9201 Broadband Satellite IP Terminal and WLAN Access Point is your gateway to global communications via Inmarsat BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network). The Hughes HNS 9201 allows you to simultaneously send and receive IP packet and circuit switched data via USB, Ethernet, ISDN and WLAN interfaces. Which means handheld wireless devices (iPhone, Windows Mobile 5-6, Blackberry etc.) or any other device with wireless capabilities can be connected to the HNS-9201 via the terminals ability to automatically grant an IP address and internet access once a device has properly connected to the WiFi and entered the WEP key. So you get to a new site, bust out the HNS-9201 BGAN, register with the Inmarsat network and then everyone with a wireless enabled device can connect for email and internet access. The HNS-9201 enables multiple teams to utilize the terminal while using very little data as mobile devices inherently consume much less bandwidth then laptops.

The HNS 9201 combines ultimate performance with an extremely rugged design. It is one of the highest bandwidth terminals in the range and supports WLAN connectivity, in addition to other standard data interfaces. It is ideal for either single users using bandwidth-hungry applications, such as live video, or for small teams which need to set up a temporary office with high-speed connectivity to access standard data applications.

The Hughes HNS-9201 BGAN Terminal is easy to use in Semi-Fixed and Portable Environments

The rugged design of the 9201 allows the terminal to be installed outside in extreme weather conditions for extended periods of time. Multiple user support allows your entire team to share a single 9201 simultaneously, providing the site with a broadband local area network. The terminal’s small size and weight allows you to easily move it from site to site and be connected again within minutes. When you’re at a remote site, sending and receiving the information you need is critical. The Inmarsat BGAN service, together with the 9201, offers a true alternative network that enables corporate teams to communicate their critical information—anywhere, anytime.
