High performance, multi user device.

The HNS 9201 combines ultimate performance with an extremely rugged design. It is the highest bandwidth terminal in the range and the only one to support WLAN connectivity.

It is ideal for either single users using bandwidth-hungry applications, such as live video, or for small teams that need to set up a temporary office with high-speed connectivity to standard data applications.

Easy to setup and operate, see the BGAN easy setup video here..

The rugged design of the 9201 (Class1) allows the terminal to be installed outside in extreme weather conditions for extended periods of time. Multiple user support allows your entire team to share a single 9201 simultaneously, providing the site with a broadband local area network. The terminal’s small size and weight allows you to easily move it from site to site and be connected again within minutes. When you’re at a remote site, sending and receiving the information you need is critical. The Inmarsat BGAN service, together with the 9201, offers a true alternative network that enables corporate teams to communicate their critical information anywhere, anytime.
