To do voice you have to connect a phone handset. You can use two general types of phone handsets; either an ISDN handset, or a 2-wire analog handset with an ISDN temrinal adapter. A range of these handsets should be available at your local communication equipement provider.
A WLAN Access Point 802.11b or b/g is included with the unit, which make it possible to create a wireless connection with a WiFi ready computer.
Up to 11 computers can be connected to the BGAN terminal using the Ethernet, WLAN and USB interfaces.
More than one TE can be connected to the Ethernet interface by using either a hub or router. If a hub is used the BGAN terminal will allocate private IP addresses to each TE connected to the hub, and so each TE will be able to have a primary PDP context. If a router (which includes a NAT) is used, the whole private network will share a single primary PDP context. The NAT in the router would assign IP addresses within its own subnet. Multiple computers connected via the WLAN interface will each be allocated a private IP address.
BGAN will deliver seamless network coverage across most of the world's landmass. Users will be able to get broadband wherever they go, not just in major cities or airports.
Simultaneous voice and broadband data With a single BGAN device, you can access data applications at broadband speeds and make phone calls at the same time. In a world-first for mobile services, you can also select guaranteed data rates on demand, with a choice of rates to suit your application requirements. And to ensure bandwidth availability, network capacity can also be re-directed to areas of heavy usage.
BGAN terminals are compact, lightweight and designed to be carried as easily as a laptop. The smallest BGAN terminal weighs less than a kilo. A fully functional broadband mobile office can be set up and shut down in minutes.
BGAN supports the latest IP services, as well as traditional circuit-switched voice and data. Integrating seamlessly with your corporate networks, it supports legacy applications while providing a smooth upgrade path to IP. There are terminals for single users and small teams, which can be connected to a laptop PC via a wired or wireless connection. For added flexibility, the BGAN LaunchPad can be customized to your requirements.
