Make Your Business Go Global with BGAN Terminals
If your business takes you to all kinds of remote locations – but you don’t want to have to work without access to your network – BGAN terminals are the perfect solution!
How do they work?
A BGAN terminal is about the size of a laptop. However, it’s capable of much more than your laptop is! In layman’s terms, BGAN terminals are portable satellite equipment that can provide voice and data services virtually anywhere on the ground. Think of them as giving you the power to have a mobile office – with all of the technical perks that 3G cellular providers haven’t found a way to offer yet!
In fact, the terminal itself is only a one-time expense. After that, you’ll subscribe to service, just like you would a “regular” network that’s sitting in your urban office. BGAN terminals offer the same perks as their non-portable counterparts – like lots of bandwidth (and different amounts that you can choose from when you subscribe), options for wifi, and flat rates. The main difference is that they can give you service in remote areas, in places where even cell phone service is hit-or-miss. It’s almost like carrying around your own wifi hotspot. But unlike traditional wifi hotspots, your BGAN terminal will always be in direct site of a satellite, so you won’t have to worry about hunting for a signal!
If you need to connect to your home office, all you need is a BGAN M2M – or a “machine to machine”. These terminals collect data from your remote site, then send it off to the central computer at your main office. As a result, you’ll be able to log onto the network, no matter where you are!
In fact, a BGAN M2M is the perfect solution for remote surveillance. If you have expensive equipment out in the middle of the ocean or in the middle of the desert – and it’s going to be left unattended most of the time – you can use your BGAN M2M as an extra set of eyes whenever you’re not around.
But are these machines easy to use?
Yes! If you’re going to invest in BGAN terminals, you don’t have to worry about being a computer expert, or taking an IT professional with you to the far reaches of the globe. Instead, these machines are quick and easy to set up.
What about the security?
BGAN terminals offer plenty of it! Each one comes with its own VPN, so you can count on it to transmit even the most sensitive of data.
