Cobham EXPLORER 540 Dual Mode BGAN M2M & Cellular Terminal (C1D2 Approved)



Cobham EXPLORER 540 BGAN M2M Terminal is the world’s first BGAN M2M terminal designed to operate on both Inmarsat BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network) and cellular 2G/3G/LTE networks, EXPLORER 540 delivers always available connectivity for critical monitoring and control applications.

The Explorer 540 is a rugged, C1D2-certified BGAN M2M employing Inmarsat’s BGAN service network to provide a reliable, global, two-way IP data service. It is designed to connect monitoring and control applications in remote, unmanned locations, providing visibility and management of those assets. By combining BGAN M2M with cellular connectivity in the same terminal, EXPLORER 540 gives users the opportunity to choose the best carrier for any location.

EXPLORER 540 is the only Inmarsat BGAN M2M terminal to offer dual mode operation, which provides unique flexibility and M2M data communication cost-control, as it ensures the most cost-effective communication service can be chosen depending on location. Securing continuity of M2M IP data transfer, which often originates in hard to reach, remote locations, dual-mode operation delivers significant failover capabilities with automatic switching between BGAN and cellular networks.
