  Back of Hughes 9201 BGAN Terminal
The Hughes 9201 is the size of a laptop and can transmit and receive speeds up to 492Kbps globally (except for the extreme polar regions).
The back of the Hughes 9201 BGAN terminal shows 4 bolt holes for mounting on a fixed structure. There is also a small built-in magnetic compass ( top right side).
Pointing the Hughes 9201   Hughes 9201 Battery Slot
Help in locating a BGAN satellite is done by opening the BGAN Launchpad software. On the launchpad screen will be the compass direction and the elevation to set the terminal to find a BGAN satellite. Use these figures to set the terminal in place.
opening a latch on top of the 9201 reveals the Li-Ion battery compartment, and the Sim Card slot (right of the battery). The silver metal tab is pushed to the side, and the battery will self-eject.
The BGAN Sim Card, much like a cellphone Sim Card, is used to track account information and usage. You may purchase multiple Sim Cards that are easily inserted into the same terminal to keep accounts separate.
