Hughes 9502 BGAN M2M Terminal

Now available from AST the new Hughes 9502 BGAN M2M Terminal.

Hughes 9502 BGAN M2M Terminal is the world’s most cost-effective, all-IP BGAN machine-to-machine satellite terminal with exceptionally low power consumption.
Hughes 9502 IP satellite terminal provides reliable connectivity over the Inmarsat Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) for IP SCADA and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications. 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 exceptional low power consumption (<1 W idle) of the Hughes 9502 makes it possible to provide end-to-end IP connectivity to sites that are off the grid. This breakthrough provides end-to-end IP connectivity to power-challenged locations that rely upon solar battery arrays involving sensitive power budgets.
