The MCD-MP77 Manpack places an in-motion BGAN terminal on a lightweight backpack frame for constant Wi-Fi access from any remote trail, wilderness or urban location on the globe. Like our popular MCD-4800 BGAN terminal the MCD-MP77 Manpack delivers one-button internet and phone with these features.
The MCD-MP77 Manpack mounts an In-Motion BGAN terminal on an Alice backpack frame for up to 100 meters to any in-range wireless device. Housed in a waterproof IP66 Pelican case, the BGAN transceiver and 170 watt-hour battery allow this Wi-Fi hotspot to maintain connectivity up to six hours in extreme weather. Combined with our 80-watt foldable solar panel and the MCD-MP77 may run indefinitely as long as there is sun to power and quickly charge the onboard battery.
While the MCD-MP77 Manpack is primarily used as a wireless hotspot, the top of the case does include a a weather-sealed Ethernet port (and optional phone port to connect a standard phone). All cabling and the mast-pole are easily removed for easy transportation of the individual components. Weatherproof caps are also included with the system.
Comfortable belts on the Alice-style pack hold the 30lbs (13.6kg) pack comfortably.
The service area of the MCD-MP77 is global except for extreme polar regions. If the system is located within any of the coloured regions in the BGAN coverage map, you may connect. The MCD-MP77 uses BGAN service plans available from Ground Control or other BGAN service provider for Internet, phone, SMS messaging and many other communication services. For more information on the BGAN service area, please visit the BGAN coverage map.
The MCD-MP77 Manpack is enclosed in a watertight hardened plastic Pelican case and the case lid is normally closed for full operation. It operates in heavy rain and will transmit with 20 mm of ice build-up before transmission issues. It is rated at IP66, which means it can withstand powerful water jets from any direction. In extremely hot environments, we recommend the case lid be slightly opened for ventilation, so as to avoid heat build-up inside the case.
