CPN Satellite Services, Hughes announce dual mode terminal

CPN Satellite Services GmbH, a pioneer of innovative solutions for mobile satellite communications, has announced the release of one of the world´s most advanced LTE-BGAN M2M Dual Mode Terminal, the company said.

Combining CPN´s high quality integrated cellular LTE gateway with the industry-leading Hughes 9502 satellite BGAN M2M modem, the all IP solution is packaged in a ruggedized enclosure with battery back-up, ideal for IoT M2M fixed site locations.

The new generation terminal significantly increases reliability for sites transmitting high-value data, whether in urban or rural environments, providing resilient L-band BGAN connectivity for periods when the primary LTE connection is congested or unavailable. Furthermore, it features intelligent IP routing during the failover process, and separate modem power supplies for high reliability.

Developed to withstand harsh weather conditions, the LTE-BGAN Terminal is ideal for unattended sites equipped for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) or M2M applications, such as midstream pipeline operations and a range of environmental applications including wind farms, forestry monitoring and surveillance.
