Bring Your Office Anywhere


What makes up your office? A desk. A chair. A treadmill. A cactus. All likely answers, but let’s face it, not the whole truth. Broadband is what makes up most office stations today. Without instant access to the www, the corporate intranet and the inbox, we do not get much done. We are accustomed to always having fast paced internet within our reach, and as such doing without it when travelling the globe on business will not do. Business simply is not business without the broadband amenity of the office. That is why broadband has gone mobile with the lightweight, cutting edge EXPLORER terminals from Thrane & Thrane.

Terminals are smaller than your average carry-on

With a sleek and compact design these can all easily be brought along everywhere you go. Weighing around 1 kg these neat little items fit in your bag and are both smaller and lighter than most of your belongings that you usually carry with you when travelling.


You can connect one handset via cable to the EXPLORER. The Wireless Bluetooth connection offers support for up to 2 devices.


Easily connect your fax via cable (EXPLORER 500 & 700 only).
