Fixed Location BGAN Satellite Terminal
No Longer Stocking

The Wideye SABRE™ Ranger M2M
is designed for unmanned all-environment BGAN terminal for long term fixed location operation. The Ranger M2M unlike other BGAN terminals maintains a continuous 24 x 7 network connection required for M2M and SCADA devices. It also uses the new BGAN M2M Service that keeps costs of maintaining a remote site at under $50 per month.

Security Options
Keep your devices blind to potential hacking from the Internet by two security options. (1) Our BGAN Traffic Control Service sets rules for what traffic is able to go in and out of the BGAN network. This service is included at no additional cost with any Ground Control BGAN subscription. Our other security service is setting up a (2) BGAN VPN or Private Network. Remote devices become inaccessible from the Internet since they do not have a routable IP address. Maintain complete security over all your remote assets.

Industry Uses Of The Wideye Ranger BGAN Terminal
