Put an Ethernet Port at any recloser location anywhere in the world for $23.99/month. The Hughes 9502 BGAN Terminal is an ideal recloser communications solution with an always-on, real-time, high-speed satellite communications link designed for monitoring and controlling any unmanned equipment. These revolutionary "Global Ethernet Ports" use the BGAN M2M Service that dramatically lowers monthly cost from other satellite services. Extend your recloser WAN to any location on the planet, inexpensively, with one service provider, one network.

Global Ethernet Ports - Internet Anywhere
The Hughes 9502 has unique features that make it possibly the best remote communication solution for low-bandwidth or high-bandwidth M2M, SCADA, or any IP device control:

Hughes 9502 BGAN
Low Service Costs - Starting at $23.99 a month
Low KiloByte Cost - Pay For Only What You Transfer.
The 9502 uses special M2M BGAN service that charges between 1 to 2 cents per Kilobyte! Excellent for small packet communication. And BGAN M2M service does NOT bill for overhead data related to establishing (or reestablishing) a connection to the High-Speed satellite network. This is a great deal for remote device control.

Choose A Form Factor
The One-Piece and Two-Piece 9502 terminals operate identically. Where the One-Piece places the 9502 transceiver behind the antenna, the Two-Piece system lets you place the transceiver inside of an enclosure or inside of a building.

Hughes 9502 One-Piece BGAN Terminal Hughes 9502 Two-Piece Terminal with Enclosure

A nice feature about the One-Piece is that there is no bulky 10 meter antenna cable to deal with (we also offer a 10 foot antenna cable here), and you only need to run an Ethernet cable and a 12-24 volt DC power line to the terminal. However, the 2-Piece is less expensive, and you only need to run the antenna cable between it and the transceiver.

Hughes 9502 Stays Online 24 x 7
The 9502 maintains an around-the-clock live TCP-IP connection over the BGAN satellite network drawing only 3 to 4 watts of power. This means ANY TCP-IP device using an Ethernet connection to the 9502 is always able to communicate over the network to any IP address on the Internet instantly.

IP Watchdog - The Network Must Stay Alive
The Hughes 9502 has a unique watchdog option where the terminal will ping an external IP address after a set period of time and if it not successful, the terminal will reset, reestablishing the network connection automatically. Below is the configuration screen for setting up the watchdog service.

BGAN M2M Watchdog Service


Easy To Install
While a laptop is handy for pointing the 9502, it is not required. Many installs may be in awkward locations, such as on a pole or building side. In these cases, a pair of headphones use the audio port of the 9502 for and audible signal strength tone for pointing. We recommend the 9502 be configured to operate with connected equipment prior to remote installation... So during installation, the only action required is mounting and pointing. Excellent for non-trained personnel, or for installers who don't wish to contend with a laptop.

Hughes 9502 Size   Components of the Hughes 9502
Running on 10 to 32 volts DC, the Hughes 9502 uses less than 4 watts for a full-time network connection.
The four components that make up the 9502 2-Piece terminal is the L-band antenna, 10 meters of RF cable (Type N connection at both ends) the 9502 BGAN terminal, and a TNC to Type N connector. Click for larger image.
Sim Card Slot   Connector for 9502
Installing the BGAN M2M Sim Card into the 9502. The 9502 terminal uses specialized BGAN M2M service (via BGAN M2M Sim Card), that will NOT work when installed in other BGAN terminals.
A Type-N to TNC adapter is included for the 9502 antenna port. The 10m cable has Type N connectors at both ends.
Antenna Dimentions   Antenna Connection
You may purchase our mounting bracket, or customizes your own to secure the antenna. There are 4 identical bolts protruding 17mm from the back of the antenna with 4 securing locking nuts. Dimensions of the 4 bolts are 70mm W x 90mm H on center. Bolt hole size in custom bracket should be 3/8th" or 1cm.
