Nov. 9, 2011


Hughes Network Systems, LLC  announced that its new 9202 Class 2 portable terminal has been fully Type Approved by Inmarsat, with shipments beginning in December 2011.



Building on the success of the Hughes 9201 Class 1 BGAN terminal, the Hughes 9202 is the world's smallest Class 2 BGAN terminal on the market, and is ideal for government and non-government organization (NGO) personnel such as first responders, public safety and mobile health care workers, as well as remote personnel in the utility, oil and gas, forestry, and telecommunications industries. The only commercial-grade Class 2 terminal available with a weather rating of IP55 (enclosure protected against dust and water jets), the Hughes 9202 incorporates a wireless access point, full 64kbps ISDN data capability, built-in RJ11 connection for voice and fax service, and is extended L-band ready.


"We are excited to receive Inmarsat Type Approval for our Hughes 9202, a feature-packed product in the BGAN Class 2 space," said Graham Avis, vice president and general manager of Hughes San Diego. "It combines future-proof capabilities such as extended L-band readiness, with the tried and true standards of Wi-Fi, ISDN, and analog phone/fax support -- all in a portable, rugged package, making it ideal for virtually all field operations worldwide under Inmarsat's extensive BGAN coverage footprint."
