OilComm 2015 – New EXPLORER 540 secures real-time IP data reliability for M2M installations
OilComm 2015, Houston - The new EXPLORER 540,
Cobham SATCOM's latest addition to its established EXPLORER range
of satellite terminals, has today been introduced as the world's
first Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication terminal to operate on
both Inmarsat BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network) and 2G/3G/GPRS
networks. EXPLORER 540 can be seen for the first time on Cobham
SATCOM's booth (#603) at OilComm 2015 in Houston.
As the only M2M terminal to offer dual-mode operation, EXPLORER
540 provides unique installation flexibility and M2M data
communication cost-control, as it ensures the most cost-effective
communication service can be chosen depending on location of the
installation and service quality/availability. Securing continuity
of M2M IP data transfer, which often originates in hard to reach,
remote locations, dual-mode operation also delivers significant
failover capabilities with automatic switching to the secondary
service should EXPLORER 540 detect that its primary communication
service is unavailable.
For organisations transferring business or safety critical
real-time data within their M2M networks, EXPLORER 540's dual mode
can provide unmatched service availability. Designed to deliver
real-time M2M communication for diverse applications including IP
SCADA for data backhaul, asset tracking, real-time surveillance and
remote telemetry, EXPLORER 540 brings with it the same operational
reliability that has helped to establish EXPLORER as a leading name
in the land mobile BGAN and VSAT sectors. It is based on the latest
generation EXPLORER technology platform, introduced with the
EXPLORER 510 BGAN terminal.
"Resilience being the key parameter within M2M communication,
our prime design goal has been to provide the most reliable yet
versatile BGAN M2M terminal in the market. By leveraging our field
proven technology platform, EXPLORER 540 delivers intrinsically
safe support of BGAN M2M with standard BGAN rate plans and the
added unique benefit of dual mode BGAN & 3G operation," said
Henrik Nørrelykke, VP Land Business, Cobham SATCOM.
