How do I manage the BGAN Satellite terminal?
Inmarsat recommends that you use BGAN LaunchPad to manage the BGAN terminal. You can install BGAN LaunchPad onto your computer from our website, and use its in-built Wizard to point the terminal to the BGAN satellite and register with the network.
Once registered, you can use BGAN LaunchPad to open and close data connections, send and receive text messages, and manage phone operations, as well as manage the terminal interfaces, monitor status and usage and access support services.
The other options you have for managing the terminal are as follows:
EXPLORER 300, 500, and 700 – use the terminal’s display and keypad to carry out registration and manage terminal operations.
EXPLORER 300, 325, 500, 525, 700, and 727 – Use the built in web interface to manage the terminal configuration and settings. To open this, connect to the terminal, then simply type the terminal’s IP address (192.168.0.1) into your web browser. Refer to the User Manual supplied with your terminal for guidance.
Nera 1000/1010 – if you have a Nera WorldSet, you can use the front panel indicators and buttons to manage some terminal operations. You can also utilize the built in web interface by using your default web browser and navigating to the terminal’s IP address (192.168.0.1).
Hughes 9201, 9202, 9450, 9350, and 9502 terminals can managed through front panel connections (if present on model) or through the built in web interface by using your default web browser and navigating to the terminal’s IP address (192.168.128.100)
