The Inmarsat coverage map shown here assumes that your Inmarsat BGAN terminal's antenna has a direct line of sight with an Inmarsat I-4 satellite. Local obstructions such as mountains can block your line of sight, especially if you are operating in the mountains or you are near the edge of one of the three Inmarsat I-4 satellite foot prints where the satellite would be low on the horizon. It is the responsibility of the user to carefully consider whether the terrain may have obstructions that would block the satellite from view at that location. Outfitter Satellite can give you the elevation angle and azimuthal angle of the best satellite for any particular latitude and longitude if you provide the GPS position of the location where you intend to use the terminal.
Airtime Service Options:
We offer both monthly-billed and prepaid Inmarsat BGAN service plans appropriate for every application and budget. Monthly-billed plans include a monitoring service to help you control your usage. Other common options include adding a Public Static IP address, satellite-optimized email software, high-usage monitoring, online traffic reports, and an online firewall to block unwanted IP traffic types. On most plans, we can offer PoP-level firewall services to block undesired traffic, PoP-level web compression, and PoP-level web filtering. Automatic email alerts are available on postpaid plans to inform the user when usage exceeds expected thresholds (limitations apply). Near realtime call traffic reports and data usage traffic reports are available through a web-based service (limitations apply).
