Add A Local Phone Number
If you intend to use your BGAN terminal to receive phone calls, you may want to consider getting a local number number so callers may reach you easily. We have local number for many countries and cities to make calling your BGAN easy, no matter where on the globe it's located.

More information on Local Numbers
  BGAN Rental Policies
   There is a minimum 7 day rental period on all MCD-4800 rentals. There is no maximum rental period.
   Incoming voice calls are free to subscriber, but the calling party will be charged at their provider's rates to call to your satellite phone.
   Voice calls over BGAN service are billed per minute and do not use available Megabytes, so there is no data usage cost when calling.
   All rental plans may purchase more Megabytes at listed overage rates, or TopUp with any plan offered.
   There is a late fee of $200 if the terminal is received by Ground Control more than one day late.
   Unused BGAN service at the end of the rental period is not refundable.
   BGAN terminals operate in any country with the 4 Inmarsat satellites without any plan changes. No license or certification required.
   Returned rental equipment must be operational. Renter is responsible for repairs, or for replacing inoperable or lost equipment.
   Rental days begin on day of shipping and end upon Ground Control receiving the rented equipment.

MCD-4800 BGAN Terminal "The Football"    
Holding an MCD-4800   MCD-4800 Satellite Connection and WiFi Hotspot
The MCD-4800 is a compact 25 lbs (11.4 kg) hardened watertight "Flyaway Case", easily transported and operated by anyone. An excellent solution for oil rigs, mining, public safety, military, global travel, ocean going vessels, or any other communications need that requires an easy, instant, no-hassle global broadband hotspot.
 
The MCD-4800 uses the Inmarsat BGAN satellite network for broadband Internet connectivity. It then creates a 100 meter (328 feet) Wi-Fi access point in seconds for any wireless device to connect. Wi-Fi is helpful if users wish to be inside or move around a structure untethered from the case.
MCD-4800 Front Panel Display   MCD-4800 On The Ocean - WiFi Hotspot
The external panel includes a sealed RJ-45 Ethernet port, an RJ-11 phone port, a light sensor to backlight the display at night, a charge port, and a battery status display... all are fully sealed from any weather.
 
The MCD-4800 case does not need to stay opened in order to operate. Simply press the power button (inside the case) and 60 seconds later it will become a wireless hotspot anywhere on the globe for up to 5 hours on the internal battery.
MCD-4800 Inside Case   MCD-4800 Vechicle Charging
The power button for the MCD-4800 is inside of the case. Simply press the button to turn the system on. No other action is required for establishing a WiFi hotspot. The SIM card tray is also easily accessed from just inside the case lid.
 
The MCD-4800 may be powered continuously (or recharged) from a 12 volt vehicle power with the included mini-inverter. The watertight connector from the charger is screwed to the front panel for an all weather seal.

A watertight cap protects the RJ-45 Ethernet port from the elements. A laptop or router may be connected directly to the MCD-4800. Public IP addresses are available. Ethernet lengths can be up to 328 feet (100 meters).
MCD-4800 Phone Connection
  MCD-4800 Connectivity Diagram - Phone
While the MCD-4800 is designed for Internet connectivity, it does include a standard analog phone. The phone port is issued an international satellite phone number. Any connected phone may make and receive calls from anyone on the planet for $0.99 cents usd per minute.
 
Calls are easily made between other terminals, satellite phones, cell phones or standard landline phones anywhere in the world, and incoming calls are free, although the calling party is burdened with the cost of calling. Local numbers from any country can be assigned to the BGAN terminal using this service.
MCD-4800 The Football on an Ocean Oil Rig   MCD-4800 Ocean Maritime All Weather Connectivity
The MCD-4800 is an excellent solution to ocean faring vessels and oil-rigs. Here an IT specialist uses a wireless connection to establish connectivity. Wi-Fi may be shut off, and an Ethernet cable connection can be used for a more secure connection.
 
The MCD-4800 can operate with the lid open or closed (for rain or ocean spray) with no signal strength reduction. The case is fully watertight when closed. In this picture, a ship offloads supplies to another rig.
MCD-4800 Military Defense Use   MCD-4800 Package Contents
The MCD-4800 requires no training to operate. The Quickstart guide is attached to the lid and gives simple step-by-step instructions to operate and recharge for the first time user. The case when closed is weather tight and has an IP67 rating (immersion in 1 meter of water).
 
The MCD-4800 contents include an AC/DC charger, a mini-inverter for a 12 volt vehicle power port, a standard analog phone, international plug adapters (UK, US, AU, EU, & China), a USB flash drive with manuals, and bags to hold the equipment. Click for larger photo.
