Your Gateway To Global Machine to Machine (M2M) Communications.
The world’s most cost-effective, all-IP BGAN M2M satellite terminal with exceptionally low power consumption. Simultaneously send and receive IP packet data via Ethernet over the Inmarsat BGAN satellite network.
IP SCADA Ready.
The HNS 9201 M2M BGAN provides narrowband satellite Internet connectivity for remote long-term, fixed locations. This high-performance, rugged satellite terminal is designed to withstand varying
weather conditions for extended periods of time. Yet, the terminal is small and light, so it can be installed easily enabling connectivity within minutes. The Inmarsat BGAN service, together with the HNS 9201 M2M, offers a true IP network.
Fixed location BGAN systems
use far less power, are global, but have a higher cost for data transferred. These systems are ideal for low bandwidth SCADA or M2M communication.

Oil, Gas and Water Applications
The Hughes 9201 M2M BGAN is ideal for operational well data collection
such as electronic flow measurement, pressure, and custody transfer data reading.
The Hughes 9201 M2M is also installed at natural gas sites
to enable remote monitoring and control of the compressor responsible for pushing high volumes of natural gas through the pipeline transmission system.
For instance, in these photographs the Hughes 9201 M2M is not only used for
purposes of data collection, but also for delivering critical and time-sensitive command and control instructions to downhole systems. This increases well performance and production, saving the operator time and money dispatching personnel, and increasing the producer’s revenues due to information being provided for real-time decision making.
The HNS 9201 M2M BGAN is being adopted and deployed for a range of utility solutions:
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Smart Meter Backhaul.
Thousands of residential and business wireless smart meters send usage data back to a collector point. The collector point sends the aggregate data over the Hughes 9201 M2M to the utility’s data center.
The Hughes 9201 M2M can be deployed at utility poles to enable control of SmartGrid infrastructure such as reclosers, fault indicators, capacitor banks, etc.
To dramatically enhance communication link availability at a substation, a Hughes 9201 M2M can operate as the backup path for automatic failover when the primary line fails.
Disaster Preparedness/Business Continuity Solutions.
The Hughes 9201 M2M can be used for critical communications during the recovery period immediately following a catastrophic event that interrupts utility services.
In this photo, the Hughes 9201 M2M is connected to an AMI collection point to deliver Smart Meter data from meters on residences and businesses. AMI enables readings for billing, service connections and disconnections; and consumer remote control over the Internet of lights, thermostats, and appliances, proactively reducing electricity usage costs. Utilities can manage peak loads where generation costs are high, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping measure and mitigate the risk of blackouts.
