 Explorer 500 BGAN Terminal Photos
This Explorer 500 here uses a D-Link Wireless Access point to connect any wireless devices in range. (All BGAN terminals may be connected to a wireless access point via an Ethernet Cable).
BGAN Boat 
This BGAN Explorer 500 is used on an anchored boat on a river. The BGAN Explorer 300 and 500 have shown to work well if motion is limited on water.
 BGAN Ready Case
Place the Explorer 500 in a hardened plastic case. Choose from several configurations including adding a laptop.
BGAN systems may operate quite well in polar regions. If you have line-of-sight with a BGAN satellite, you can connect.
