The Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) service provides high-speed voice and data connectivity to customers on the ground through terminals that are more or less the size of a laptop. BGAN, accessible through light and small satellite terminals, provides usage options to meet different operational needs. The standard terminals are portable and can be used both inside and outside. Vehicle systems comprise an internal terminal and a discrete location antenna, which is mounted on the roof of the vehicle.
BGAN, the mobile broadband office
With BGAN service, you can set up a mobile broadband office in just a few minutes in any part of the world. You will benefit from a simultaneous voice service and fast data transmission in areas with limited access to GSM or fixed networks.
Inmarsat’s BGAN service is now available across the globe, sent through our global network of three I-4 satellites. The map below shows the regions covered by the three I-4 satellites. BGAN coverage is worldwide. Any BGAN terminal will operate in any country within the coverage zones, and will be able to connect to any of the three BGAN satellites without reconfirming the program or changing service schedules (ideal for travelers around the world).
Global coverage: BGAN offers seamless coverage throughout the world’s continental mass. BGAN is currently accessible in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and North and South America.
