Warsaw, Poland (PressExposure) February 05, 2009 -- TS2 Satellite Technologies is pleased to announce the introduction of the HNS 9250 - allowing you to access a broadband satellite connection through a vehicular mounted terminal. The Hughes 9250 is designed to deliver the highest available transmit and receive rates of up to 492 Kbps while "on the move" within Inmarsat's global BGAN satellite coverage area.
The Broadband Global Area Network or BGAN for short, is a global Satellite Internet Network with telephony using portable terminals. The terminals are normally used to connect a laptop computer to broadband Internet in remote locations, although as long as line-of-sight to the satellite exists, the terminal can be used anywhere. The value of BGAN terminals is that unlike other satellite Internet services which require bulky & heavy satellite dishes to connect, a BGAN terminal is portable and can be used globally.
The Hughes 9250 controls the fully autonomous tracking antenna via an antenna control unit (ACU). This tracking antenna acquires and tracks the BGAN satellite signal while on the move. It mainly incorporates interface box, cable set, and magnetic feet for roof mount. The compact interface box modulates control signals from the terminal onto the RF link between the terminal and the antenna. All components in the terminal are powered by a single power supply that plugs into a vehicular 12V power source.
The unit offers you the following features and benefits:
Fully autonomous tracking antenna acquires and tracks the BGAN satellite signal while on the move Easy antenna installation (magnetic mount) on vehicle roof Includes antenna control unit and all cables and power supplies for vehicular installation Up to 464 Kbps data (transmit and receive) and 128 Kbps streaming IP data rate1 Speech (4Kbps) ISDN voice (3.1KHz audio) ISDN data (64Kbps) WLAN access point Multi-user capability for sharing a single unit Selectable Quality-of-Service (QoS) Full IP compatibility for Email, file transfer (FTP), browsing, VPN, etc. Cost-effective "always-on" access - charges only for data sent and received UMTS IP-based services WLAN, FCC, CE, and GMPCS certified Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) card security GPS and WLAN status LEDs
