A Portable One-Button WiFi Hotspot

This performance BGAN terminal became an industry favorite for these reasons:

  • Very compact 8.5" x 8.5" with Wi-Fi for any in-range device.
  • Very fast speeds of 464 Kbps (94.5% as fast as the fastest BGAN).

The Hughes 9202 has all the features we love in a BGAN terminal (high-speed Internet, one-button auto-connect, crystal clear calling, SMS texting)... and with Wi-Fi, you can place this terminal out in the rain and work comfortably inside.

The display and controls on top of the Hughes 9202 make pointing this BGAN terminal very easy:

1. Turn power on by pressing the red power button.
2. Press the signal tone button (far right) to get an audible beeping of signal strength.
3. Aim the terminal face toward the sky (beeping sound will increase in speed when a signal is found).
4. Get the highest signal strength reading possible, and then press the "X" register button.
5. If the system is to be used as a wireless access point, press the Wi-Fi enable button.

That is it! Nothing else is required for operation. Any in range device such as smartphones, laptops and tablets may connect via Wi-Fi, or with an Ethernet cable. The BGAN Launchpad software is not required to establish a full use standard connection. Also, any standard analog phone may connect to the RJ-11 port on the side to make or receive calls from anyone in the world.
