Ultra-Portable Satellite Companion

A rugged BGAN fit for purpose

The all new EXPLORER 510 is the smallest ever EXPLORER BGAN and the ideal combination of performance and portability.

The durable magnesium casing and a dust and water resistant design makes the EXPLORER 510 the perfect choice when working off the beaten track, but still dependant on a reliable connection.


Portable performance

Smaller than a standard laptop and weighing less than 1.4 kg, this satellite terminal is easy to carry along when travelling the world.

It supports your need for performance and provides simultaneous high quality voice and broadband access at speeds up to 464 kbps.

Connect the optional EXPLORER LTE Modem to the USB port and turn your device into a true communication SmartHub. Use local cellular net when available and BGAN if no other option.

Satellite connectivity made simple

EXPLORER 510 is easy to set-up and to operate. The user interface is intuitive and can be accessed from your PC or any kind of smart device.

With the EXPLORER Connect App you can use your smart device to make calls or easily access the internet even in areas with no terrestrial or cellular coverage. The EXPLORER Connect App with a SIP softphone will be available on Android and IOS.
