The Broadband Global Area Network-BGAN

BGAN extends the boundaries of the broadband mobile office, positioning it alongside the world's most advanced digital mobile services. BGAN is the world's first mobile communications service to deliver broadband data and voice, simultaneously, through a single, truly portable device, anywhere on the planet. It is also the first mobile communications service to offer guaranteed data rates on demand.

BGAN Overview

BGAN is a combined voice and broadband data mobile communications service delivered via a highly portable, easy-to-use device. Based on IP technology, BGAN makes it possible for users to connect their Laptop PC to the Internet or their corporate network at speeds up to 492Kbps. BGAN enables you to remotely access all the applications you would normally access from your desktop via a secure connection and you can even make a phone call at the same time. BGAN offers seamless and continuous coverage in areas where terrestrial telecom networks are non-existent. Accessed via small, lightweight satellite terminals - about the size of a compact notebook PC - which are easy to carry, quick to set up and shut down, and simple to use.

BGAN Users

BGAN is for anyone who would benefit from taking their office environment with them when they travel to locations where the local telecommunication infrastructure is unreliable or non-existent. It is for users who want to run all their favourite desktop computer applications- securely, reliably and at speeds to match terrestrial broadband networks - when their work takes them away from the office. BGAN will help users to be just as productive away from the office as they are back at base and you do not need any special technical expertise to set up the service or use it.

Journalists, military personnel, aid workers, survey crews, exploration teams and other established satellite users will especially welcome the superior performance and lighter load of the new BGAN terminals. But other users, such as civil engineers, consultants, project managers, sales managers, anyone, in fact, who wants dependable, secure broadband access when travelling in locations with unreliable or no telecommunications networks - will now be able

to reap the benefits of mobile satellite communications.

BGAN Capabilities

BGAN delivers broadband mobile office connectivity wherever and whenever it is needed. It supports innovative IP services, as well as traditional circuit-switched voice and ISDN data. BGAN offers two types of IP service:

Standard IP- Typically used for accessing corporate networks via a secure VPN connection at speeds up to 492kbps. Use e-mail and other desktop applications, browse the Internet and send large file attachments as easily as in the office. You can even make a phone call at the same time.

Streaming IP-BGAN is the world's first mobile communications service to offer guaranteed data rates on demand. This is ideal for applications where quality of service is paramount, such as live video in the media industry or videoconferencing. You can select Streaming IP on a case-by-case basis, with the flexibility to choose the data rate (32kbps to 256kpbs) appropriate to your application requirements.

Phone- BGAN provides high quality voice services, including calls to and from mobile phones. It supports all the usual enhanced features offered by terrestrial fixed-line and mobile networks, such as voice mail, call forwarding, call hold, call barring and call waiting. Calls can be made using a standard desktop phone, peripheral headset or via a Bluetooth earpiece, depending on your choice of BGAN terminal.

Text Messaging-BGAN enables you to send and receive SMS text messages via your laptop- up to the standard 160 characters- to or from any mobile phone.

BGAN Benefits

BGAN delivers a range of practical benefits that make it a compelling proposition for new mobile satellite communications users, as well as existing customers.

Global coverage- BGAN will deliver seamless network coverage across about 85 per cent of the world's land mass, so users can get broadband wherever they roam, not just in major metropolitan areas or at the airport. Coverage is available now for the IOR and AOR regions depicted in the coverage map below. The service launch date for POR has not been announced but is expected by late 2007.

Simultaneous broadband data and voice-With a single BGAN device, you can access broadband data applications at speeds up to 492kbps and make a phone call at the same time. You also have the option of on-demand guaranteed data rates, which is a world first for a mobile data service.

Highly portable-BGAN terminals are compact, lightweight and can be carried as easily as a laptop. A fully functional broadband mobile office can be set up and shut down in minutes. The smallest BGAN terminal weighs less than one kilogram.

Totally flexible-BGAN supports the latest IP services and traditional circuit-switched voice and data. Integrating seamlessly with corporate networks, it also supports legacy applications and provides an easy upgrade path to IP. The range of terminals includes models suitable for single users or small teams, and can be used inside buildings or outdoors.

Ease of use- BGAN is designed for simplicity and ease of use. No special technical expertise is required to set it up and use it. It's easy to manage costs, because you can track service usage and charges in real-time. You can use the same device worldwide and the user interface is standard across all terminals. And there are never any compatibility issues with local telecoms networks, because you connect direct to the satellite.

Completely secure- With vast experience in providing secure communications to military and government customers. BGAN meets these exacting requirements and supports all major VPN products and today's intensive encryption standards.
