BGAN service can be very expensive to transfer data so we've developed the Optimized Laptop running Windows 10 Pro to eliminate background applications using your limited speed and valuable Internet service. Take control of what is transferred over ANY network.

The Ground Control optimized Windows 10 laptops boot in less than 15 seconds and run any installed app lightning quick... (Please check the boot time on your Windows 10 computer for a comparison). These laptops are modified with 6 GB of RAM with an SSD C: drive and a secondary 1TB D: drive that easily handle any task or application... limiting the background telemetry used by Windows 10 default settings. Bloatware and other Windows background apps are also eliminated so they don't use valuable and limited Inmarsat satellite network resources, as well as impacting the speed of the connected BGAN device. This laptop includes many features including web blockers and background script blockers that block the lions share browser usage. We include an email client (Mozilla Thunderbird) that will download only the headers of emails so data heavy attachments and images are not downloaded unless you click on them. One of our included Apps shows one instantly how much data is used by all existing and new applications at any given time. This one feature alone offers insight and control over this expensive Internet connection. Use it to limit what Apps may use your Internet connection at any time.

BGAN Optimized Laptop

The idea behind the Optimized Laptop is that the user is back in control on a Windows 10 machine of what is being transferred over the network... not bloatware... not background Apps... and not Microsoft telemetry.

Real-Time usage reports on what has and is been transferred is invaluable... Use it to tweak your system to the ultimate of performance over the network.

With the high cost of satellite data, this laptop can pay for itself in short order, not to mention increasing performance.

Final Thoughts
Windows 7 has been our preferred operating system for BGAN satellite terminals because it allowed full control over ALL aspects of what was being transferred over the network. This is unlike Windows 10 that has too many to count background Apps and telemetries that occur unnoticed, impacting a very limited and very expensive network resource.

Microsoft ended sales of new laptops with Windows 7 so we've spent hours with specialists to create an Optimized Windows 10 Laptop that places the owner in control as much as possibly can be expected. Note that Windows 10 can not completely be configured to eliminate all unwanted traffic (by design), but this Laptop will get as close as one can and let the owner see what does actually happen on their network.

Finally, this laptop is indeed a standard Windows 10 computer that is fully able to install and use any necessary program to your specific requirements. Stay productive anywhere you go.
