Thrane & Thrane Explorer 100 (BGAN)

The EXPLORER 100/110 combines an exceptionally compact design with performance and optimal flexibility. The terminal can be separated into two parts, so users can choose between indoor and outdoor use, with no need for an external antenna.

Combined with the Nera WorldSet for voice telephony and text messages, it is ideal for single users, who need to set up a complete broadband mobile office in frequently changing locations.


EXPLORER 100/110 is the world’s smallest and most lightweight mobile satellite device for voice and broadband data communications from anywhere in the world. Your private or corporate office on the move adds less than 1 kg to your carry-on.

EXPLORER® 100/110 gives you access to:

  • Internet
  • E-mail
  • Voice calls
  • Video conferencing and streaming
  • Corporate servers
  • ...and much more

Work flexibility for you

If the weather does not allow you to work outside or the environment is inhospitably or risky, the detachable antenna enables you to place the antenna outside while sitting comfortably communicating inside.

For beginners and specialists alike

Setting up your EXPLORER 100/110 is quick and easy. Just plug in a laptop or PDA, or use the Bluetooth interface, point the antenna towards the BGAN satellite - and you are online.
