Smaller than a standard laptop and weighing less than 1.4 kg, the Explorer 510 BGAN satellite terminal is easy to carry along when travelling the world. It supports your need for performance and provides simultaneous high quality voice and broadband Internet access at speeds up to 464 kbps. Built-in wi-fi allows easy connectivity from portable devices and the Explorer Apps enable you to make satellite phone calls via your SmartPhone. Connect an optional LTE Modem and turn the 510 into a communications SmartHub to use cellular when available and the Inmarsat BGAN network when out of cellular range.
Cobham’s SATCOM team has launched the Explorer “Connect” app for Explorer 510 and 710 BGAN satellite terminals. Available on the iTunes App Store and Google play, the “Connect” app is for the management of Explorer 510 and 710 BGAN terminals only. The app offers monitoring and configuration of the new core module Explorer terminals and includes a built-in satellite phone for making or receiving satellite calls over the Explorer terminal.
The EXPLORER Connect main menu offers the following options:
- Satellite Phone – Use your phone as a satellite phone to make and receive calls via the EXPLORER terminal
- Terminal Access – Open the terminal’s web interface for management and configuration
- Pointing – Activate the pointing process towards the BGAN satellite and see signal strength
- Dashboard – See the terminal status
