Using robust and lightweight hardware, it enables a wide range of M2M applications.

Two-way communications between you and your assets

The service enables two-way text, data communications and GPS tracking for users who need high levels of data availability and performance in unmanned environments. With a range of small-size, weight and power (SWaP) mobile and static terminals, which can connect to industry-standard sensors and controllers, BGAN M2M can be integrated with a variety of value-add control and reporting applications.

The service is also optimised for SCADA traffic profiles, providing low latency, global data reporting out-of-the-box and delivered within a secure network environment.
