Cobham Explorer 510 Ultra-Portable BGAN

Additional information


EXPLORER 510 is focused on wireless connectivity. It harnesses the power of the new EXPLORER Connect App, which turns your Android and IOS  smartphones and tablets into powerful satellite communications tools.

When it comes to setting up you can be online in minutes using your own wireless devices. The USB host allows wired connections to the terminal and the optional EXPLORER LTE dongle (available in Q1 2015), so you can use local cellular if available and switch to BGAN when needed.


EXPLORER 510 draws from the established EXPLORER legacy, offering the same high-quality materials and manufacturing, but featuring a whole new design direction for this leading series of satellite terminals.

Media, government, humanitarian and utility users know that EXPLORER terminals are designed and built to last. So whether you are helping people on the fault line, creating news on the frontline or measuring flow on a pipeline, you know you can rely on EXPLORER 510 to connect every time.
