Cobham Explorer 510 BGAN Land Portable Satellite Internet Terminal Rental
A new way to connect
EXPLORER 510 is focused on wireless connectivity. It harnesses the power of the new EXPLORER Connect App, which turns your Android and IOS smartphones and tablets into powerful satellite communications tools.
When it comes to setting up you can be online in minutes using your own wireless devices. The USB host allows wired connections to the terminal and the optional EXPLORER LTE dongle (available in Q1 2015), so you can use local cellular if available and switch to BGAN when needed.
