Reliable and Versatile

EXPLORER 540 is the world's first Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication terminal to operate on both Inmarsat BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network) and 2G/3G/LTE networks. With resilience a key parameter within M2M networks, the primary design goal for EXPLORER 540 is to provide the most reliable, yet versatile M2M connectivity available today.


As the only Inmarsat BGAN M2M terminal to offer dual mode operation, EXPLORER 540 introduces unique flexibility and M2M data communication cost-control, as it ensures the most cost-effective communication service can be chosen depending on location. As the most advanced BGAN M2M terminal available, EXPLORER 540 is well suited for bespoke M2M solutions such as IP SCADA for data backhaul, asset tracking, real-time surveillance and remote telemetry.

Always Available

Securing continuity of M2M IP data transfer, which often originates in hard to reach, remote locations, EXPLORER 540's dual-mode operation delivers significant failover capabilities with automatic switching between BGAN and cellular networks. For organisations transferring critical real-time data within their M2M networks, EXPLORER 540's dual mode provides unmatched service availability.

Any Environment

EXPLORER 540 is a rugged M2M terminal designed to provide reliable and secure IP data in even the harshest environments. At 20 x 20 cm and just 1.6 kg, it is the smallest and lightest BGAN M2M terminal in the market today. It comes with an included pole mount and is easy to install and simple to set-up. The durable casing and a dust and water resistant IP66 design make EXPLORER 540 the perfect choice for any kind of fixed installation outside or inside.
