Mobile One-Piece Global WiFi Hotspot
EXPLORER 323 operates while moving or while parked for Internet and voice connectivity globally. It is a compact one-piece BGAN terminal with WiFi access to any in-range device. Unlike other BGAN in-motion terminals, the 323 combines both the transceiver with the domed antenna for a single device that only needs power to become a WiFi hotspot globally.

Explorer 323 Top Features:
One-Piece design - The transceiver is integrated into the domed antenna.
No moving parts - The antenna is extremely rugged and can connect from any orientation.
May be used with all standard BGAN services and BGAN M2M services.
Designed for extreme environments - IP66 and operates at -25 to +55°C / -13 to 131°F.
WiFi Internet access point (802.11 b/g) and uses the Explorer Connect App to make and receive calls.

Explorer 323 Overview
The EXPLORER 323 satellite terminal is a global WiFi hotspot with Internet speeds of up to 200 Kbps to any in-range wireless device such as laptops, tablets, smartphones and low-bandwidth M2M sensors. Smartphones may use the "Explorer Connect App" to control the 323 parameters and display information such as data usage (in Megabytes), as well as sending and receive texts (including iPhone iMessage or other texting programs).
The 323 also turns your smartphone into a satellite phone to place or receive phone calls from anyone in the world.

Rugged Reliable WiFi Hotspot
The 323 can be instantly placed on any vehicle any roof using the optional Mag-Mount rubberized feet and powered by the 12 volt (or 24 volt) from a vehicle power port. Since it's a WiFi access point, any authorized wireless device may connect for Internet & SMS access. Any vehicle or location can become a mobile communication hub when power is supplied to the terminal. The antenna has no-moving-parts because it uses beam switching technology so there is moving to damage. It's ultra compact at 12.7" inches in diameter (.321 Meter) and 3.82" high (97mm) making it the smallest in-motion BGAN terminal on the market. It's also very lightweight at 7.9 lbs (3.6 kg), ideal for vehicles, trains, or packed in a backpack. Did we mention that operates in extreme weather? Down to -25° F (-13°C) and up to 131°F (55°C).
