Reliable L-band service
Remote users are likely to be working in extreme environments, which can impact on satellite communications. But since BGAN Link is delivered over Inmarsat’s L-band network, according to a company spokesman, it can be relied on no matter how tough the weather conditions – with connectivity maintained in heavy rain, snow, ice and sand storms. It also has a reportedly high degree of pointing tolerance that will help retain a connection even when its direction has shifted slightly due to wind or seismic activity.
The global Inmarsat-4 satellites and ground network operates at a reported 99.9% availability, so business-critical applications can always be accessed. BGAN Link is available globally – with the exception of USA and Afghanistan – via Thrane & Thrane Explorer 700 and Hughes 9201 terminals.

BGAN Link Plans
Three data packages – 5GB, 10GB and 15GB per month – are available, each at a fixed monthly price and for a minimum commitment of 12 months. The fixed price means end-users can control their communications budget.
Users can choose how to deal with usage over and above these amounts. Those that wish to exceed their monthly allowance are simply charged for the additional usage at the in-bundle per MB rate, or can have a free upgrade to the next data package.
Those users requiring total cost control can select an option that cumulatively monitors daily usage to ensure monthly allowance is not exceeded.
