Hughes 9502

The world’s most advanced, all-IP, BGAN machine-to-machine satellite terminal. Including an integrated antenna and highest IP-66 ingress protection industry rating for outdoor installation.

Originally introduced as an alternative to the external antenna version of the 9502, this product integrates the 9502 modem with a compact antenna to create a single-piece, integrated, rugged terminal to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions. Providing reliable IP connectivity over the Inmarsat Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN), it includes backup and out-of-band management to primary site communications—ideal for SCADA and unattended sites equipped for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications such as environmental monitoring, SmartGrid, pipeline monitoring/control, compressor monitoring/control, well site automation and surveillance.

The Hughes 9502 features exceptional low power consumption (<1W idle) making it possible to provide end-to-end IP connectivity to sites “off-the-grid”. This breakthrough enables “always on” IP connectivity to powerchallenged locations which rely upon solar-battery arrays with limited power budgets.

Installation is simplified as there is no need to remotely package the transceiver inside a standalone NEMA enclosure.

The Hughes M2M terminal qualifies for no charge over-the-air (OTA) upgrades, saving our customers both time, and money.

Reliable. Compact. Affordable. The best in its class.
