EXPLORER 540

EXPLORER 540 is the world’s first Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication terminal to operate on both Inmarsat BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network) and 2G/3G/LTE networks.

As the only Inmarsat BGAN M2M terminal to offer dual mode operation, EXPLORER 540 introduces unique flexibility, M2M IP data transfer continuity (thanks to the failover capabilities with automatic switching between BGAN and cellular networks ) and M2M data communication cost-control, as it ensures the most cost-effective communication service can be chosen depending on location.

EXPLORER 540 is well suited for bespoke M2M solutions such as IP SCADA for data backhaul, asset tracking, real-time surveillance and remote telemetry.

Finally, at 20 x 20 cm and just 1.6 kg, it is the smallest and lightest BGAN M2M terminal in the market today. It comes with an included pole mount and is easy to install and simple to set-up.
