National Regulations for Russian BGAN coverage in the Inmarsat MEAS region
There are special national regulations for users conducting satellite communications within Russian national borders or Russian territorial waters. For most users the new SAS will not require terminal reconfiguration. Instead, BGAN terminals will automatically update to include details of the new MEAS region.
The Hughes-9202 is one of the most popular BGAN terminal models. It can be configured for automatic context activation so that a new Standard IP data session is initiated once the BGAN terminal is registered on the Inmarsat network. Customers can use the Hughes-9202 in concert with an external firewall to control unnecessary and expensive data traffic.
For this reason, Outfitter Satellite recommends the Optimizer Wi-Fi hotspot. All traffic from your computer, smartphone, or tablet that does not originate from XGate software is blocked by the Optimizer. XGate is included free with an active BGAN service subscription from Outfitter Satellite, and it provides excellent data compression for email and web browsing. Please call us for more information on the Hughes-9202 and our other BGAN terminal models.
