BGAN M2M vs Satellite Dishes (VSAT)
A satellite dish (VSAT) may have cheaper service to transmit large amounts of data, but VSAT dishes are bulky, use more power (over 100 watts) and can easily misalign and require a certified installer to setup. Also, a certified installer will need to be dispatched if the dish misaligns for any reason such as wind. In contrast, the Hughes 9502 is extremely portable, can be installed by anyone, and operates very well in extreme weather. Misalignments to wind are rare and the power draw is a fraction of VSAT systems (.01 to 4 watts), ideal for remote low power or solar installations. The BGAN M2M - Hughes 9502 is the solution to monitoring all rural and urban assets since now your WAN can be anywhere on the globe, inexpensively, and with one service provider.


BGAN M2M vs Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD)
The advantage of using BGAN M2M over the Iridium SBD service is that you are capable of transferring 1 Kilobyte of data for $0.01 to $0.02 cents, while Iridium SBD is $1 to $2 dollars per Kilobyte. Also, BGAN M2M is a live IP connection with 900 to 1800 millisecond latency, while Iridium SBD service is not an open IP service, and data packets may take up to 20 to 30 seconds to deliver. Finally, BGAN M2M provides speeds of up to 464 Kilobits per second, so that when emergencies happen, you have full speed to the equipment to make adjustments real-time. Iridium does not have this capability.
