Hughes 9250 Modem (BGAN)

The Hughes 9250 Vehicular Terminal is a Class 2 bgan Mobile Broadband Satellite IP Terminal and WLAN Access Point with tracking capabilities.

Terminal allows you to send and receive IP packet data via Ethernet and WLAN interfaces over the Inmarsat BGAN satellite network in a land-vehicular application.


Broadband satellite IP terminal and WLAN access point

Imagine connecting at IP broadband rates of up to 464 Kbps transmit and receive while on the move—with a complete mobile communications package that includes an IP broadband satellite IP modem and tracking antenna. That’s exactly what comes with the breakthrough Hughes 9250 mobile satellite terminal. Fully approved for operation on Inmarsat’s global* BGAN satellite service, it means high-performance connectivity on the move for the most demanding environments.

Ideal for emergency responders, reporters, and mobile workers who need reliable, high-speed connectivity on the move.

Collaborate with staff back at headquarters using video, voice, and data simultaneously. Create a wireless hotspot for team members on the scene using the built-in WiFi Access Point. The Hughes 9250 is IP compatible and offers selectable, dedicated Quality of Service levels. And it’s easy to install on any vehicle—the compact tracking antenna is packaged with a magnetic roof mount and a single cable connection.

The Hughes 9250 allows you to send and receive IP packet data via Ethernet and WLAN interfaces in a land-vehicular application. In parallel with the packet data services, the same terminal supports a circuit switched voice call or a 64kbps ISDN data call.

Key Benefits

The Hughes terminal controls the tracking antenna through the Antenna Control Unit (ACU). This small interface box modulates control signals from the terminal onto the RF link between the terminal and the antenna. All components are powered by a single power supply that plugs into a vehicular 12V power source.

Key features:

  • Fully autonomous tracking antenna acquires and tracks the BGAN satellite signal while on the move
  • Easy antenna installation (magnetic mount) on vehicle roof
  • Includes antenna control unit and all cables and power supplies for vehicular installation
  • Up to 464kbps shared data rate and 128kbps streaming IP data rate.**

Additional features:

  • ISDN bearer capabilities: speech (4kbps), 3.1k audio (64kbps), ISDN data (64kbps)
  • Allows simultaneous use of all interfaces (Ethernet, ISDN, and WLAN)
  • WLAN access point
  • Multi-user capability (up to 11 simultaneous sessions)
  • Selectable Quality of Service (32kbps, 64kbps or 128kbps)

Package includes:

  • Tracking antenna including interface box, cable set, and magnetic feet for roof mount.
    • Cable from Antenna Control Unit (ACU) box to terminal is 4 feet in length
    • Cable from ACU box to antenna is 14 feet in length
      Note: These cable lengths cannot be changed due to the 7 dB attentuation required between the terminal and antenna.
