Cobham Explorer 710 BGAN


Product Information

The EXPLORER 710 is the world’s smallest Class 1 BGAN terminal and the first to support INMARSAT’s premiere High Data Rate (HDR) streaming service, capable of reaching streaming speeds of up to 650 Kbps. With a range of new features, including smartphone compatibility, and plug-and-play bonding, which links two EXPLORER 710’s for even faster streaming speeds of up to 1 Mbps, the EXPLORER 710 is the ultimate portable BGAN terminal for broadcasting and other IP-based applications.



The Fastest BGAN Ever, New Features

With streaming rates that of 32, 64, 128, 176, 256 Kbps, as well as BGAN X-Stream™ at 456 Kbps, the EXPLORER 710 offers a wide range video and audio streaming choices, as well as flexibility for other data-intensive IP-based applications. And as the first portable BGAN terminal able to support BGAN High Data Rate (HDR) full channel option at speeds of up to 650 Kbps, and enhancements like guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS), the EXPLORER 710 makes broadcasting from the field more reliable and robust than ever before. Combined with its new features, such as plug-and-play bonding, you can almost double your throughput and reach speeds of up to 1 Mbps by linking two EXPLORER 710’s with an Ethernet cable. For video news gathering and live broadcasts from remote locations, and data-intensive IP based applications, the EXPLORER 710 is the new gold standard, with speed and features never seen before in a BGAN terminal.

For your whole team

The EXPLORER 710 is not just for the individual user with high-data requirements such as video broadcasting: it’s designed to be a rugged, flexible BGAN terminal for your whole team, with a range of functions, capabilities and features to meet any communication challenge. It’s got a powerful WiFi hotspot capability for multiple team members to connect wirelessly from their laptops or tablets within a 100 meter radius (328 ft), and is smartphone compatible, so you can bring your own device for voice calling and connectivity. This makes your set-up quick and easy, and gets you and your team up and running fast, when critical work needs to be done and you need to be connected.

The EXPLORER 710 has two RJ45 Ethernet ports, an RJ11 phone port, a fax port, two RJ45 ISDN ports, Bluetooth and a USB port, making it flexible enough for whatever your connectivity needs may be. Able to support internet, phone, email, VoIP and FoIP, SMS texting and video streaming, the EXPLORER 710 enables you and your team to go anywhere and get the job done. Detach the rugged antenna, and set-it up outside so you and your team can weather the storm inside: the rugged and durable antenna has an ingress rating of IP66, the highest rating for particles and dust, and can resist powerful jets of water from every direction, making it function in severe wet-weather. Whether you’re a first responder or a journalist, part of a medical response team or scientific expedition, or a business traveler with critical communication needs, the EXPLORER 710 connects you to the INMARSAT system of communication satellites faster and more reliably, than ever before.

Ultra-portable, Easy to use

As the smallest Class 1 BGAN terminal in the world, the EXPLORER 710 is small and light enough to take just about anywhere. Weighing just 3.5 kg (7.7 lbs) and the size of a laptop computer: 279 mm x 332 mm x 54 mm (11 in. x 13 in. x 2.1 in.), the EXPLORER 710 can be packed-up easily and set-up quickly. From sub-freezing temperatures to blistering heat, the EXPLORER 710 can take it, with operational temperatures ranging from -25°C to +55°C (-13°F to +131°F). It’s got hot-swappable batteries, a large, intuitively designed LED display and one-button auto-connect to the internet, so the EXPLORER 710 is simple to use. Smart, simple design like this is important when you are in unfamiliar terrain, unstable situations, or crisis scenarios and you need to connect fast. Small, compact and portable, this is a Class 1 BGAN terminal that you can take anywhere.
