The Hughes 9502 BGAN M2M IP satellite terminal provides reliable connectivity over the Inmarsat Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) for IP SCADA, telemetry and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications. The Hughes terminal delivers affordable, global, end-to-end IP data connectivity enabling applications in industry sectors such as environmental monitoring, SmartGrid, pipeline monitoring, compressor monitoring, well site automation, video surveillance, and out-of-band management to primary site communications.
The 9502 BGAN M2M is available in three versions:
- Standard two-piece configuration with separate IDU (indoor unit/transceiver) and ODU (outdoor unit/antenna)
- C1/D2 Model – The same as the Standard two-piece version but certified for use in hazardous zones
- One piece model – Integrated transceiver and antenna as a single unit
Key Features of BGAN M2M
- Up to eleven PDP contexts (primary or secondary) may be simultaneously established
- Dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) – The 9502 terminal has a DHCP server that can allocate IP addresses to devices connected locally using dynamic or static assignment of IP addresses from a configurable address range. Each IP device connection will establish its own PDP context.
- Network modes – The BGAN M2M terminals can operate in basic NAT mode or Relay mode. NAT mode does not impact the number of contexts/connected equipment that can be supported, but Relay Mode supports only one PDP context/connected device.
- Watchdog – The BGAN M2M terminal includes a watchdog mechanism that can be used to periodically verify the UT network connectivity and take action if a problem is detected.
- Wake on LAN (any packet) – Wake on LAN is a hardware feature that allows the UT to be put into a special low power mode where almost all the electronics are turned off. The LAN port of the terminal will generate 10BaseT link pulses of 200ns duration every 16ms whilst the Wake on LAN power saving mode is active so that all connected Ethernet devices remain alive. This means that user equipment is able to send packets of data at any point which will cause the UT to power on and receive the data. The power consumed in Wake on LAN mode will be less than 10mW when operating at 12V.
- Wake on general purpose input output (GPIO) – The UT can also be powered off via a GPIO control line on the DB9 GNSS serial port. If a voltage is applied to Pin 9 of the serial port with pin 5 as Ground, the UT will power down. It will power up when the voltage is removed. The voltage can be 2.5V DC to 50V DC and the recommended value is 12V DC.
- No connection charge with BGAN M2M and 1 Kbyte billing increments
- No charge over-the-air modem software upgrades
- Auto-on/auto-context activation automatically restores power and PDP connection to itself following loss of power and/or IP connection
- Remote control via SMS—remote management platform for command and control to the terminal using SMS, including configuration, debugging, and access to Web interface
- Ultra-low power consumption
- Interfaces: Ethernet connection (RJ45), USB–Type B for connection to configuration PC, RS-232 (DB9) to external NMEA 0183-based GNSS device (e.g., GLONASS receiver), TNC connection on the IDU to the external antenna
