BGAN SCAP - Pooled Gigabyte Plans
For Multiple BGAN Terminals Sharing A Pool Of Gigabytes

BGAN SCAP plans are cost savers for organizations that have multiple BGAN terminals. SCAP plans work by pooling any number of Gigabytes for multiple BGAN SIM cards that can be placed in any BGAN terminal. Pooled "SCAP" plans are cost effective because Megabytes unused by one or more BGAN users can be used by more active users. The cost per Megabyte is not much different than our standard PrePaid plans, but now all purchased Megabytes/Gigabytes are pooled for many terminals, not just one SIM card.

are priced on a case-by-case basis. Please email with this information:

1. The number of SIM cards required.
2. The number of pooled Megabytes or Gigabytes needed on a monthly or annual basis.
