The EXPLORER 325 BGAN terminal is built for communications on the move! It is composed of three integrated components required to make it work: the transceiver, a voice handset, and an antenna that can be mounted to your vehicle’s roof with magnetic mounts. You just place the antenna on the roof, connect it to your computer and the EXPLORER terminal (transceiver), and power up the voice handset to turn your vehicle into a mobile communications hub.
The robust and durable auto-tracking antenna is ideal for vehicles on-the-move, because of its lightweight and compact form. With fixed pricing and no roaming fees, BGAN service offers mobile broadband connectivity wherever you go, regardless of how many borders you cross on your way.

Global Connectivity Anywhere Parked or On-The-Move
The EXPLORER 325 from Cobham is a compact on-the-move BGAN antenna. The system consists of a transceiver, an IP handset, and a roof mag-mount antenna. Simply connect a laptop or wireless access point to the transceiver’s Ethernet port, turn the unit on and you’re online anywhere and any time.
The antenna has built-in magnetic roof mounts and may be mounted on an angle on the roof. The antenna connects via a cable to the controller/transceiver that provides an Ethernet port and a phone port for broadband Internet and phone. As long as there is line-of-sight to the geostationary satellite, connectivity is global with Ground Control BGAN Service.
Global Coverage and Service
With Ground Control service, BGAN terminals may connect anywhere on the globe except for the poles. If you’re within one of the three colored regions, you may connect at broadband speeds, as well as make and receive phone calls from anywhere.
