Ground Control offers all BGAN subscribers a number of free benefits with every Ground Control BGAN subscription.
All BGAN accounts are highly configurable to enable or disable all, some or one of the BGAN services… which are: Standard Internet access, Streaming services, phone service, Fax service, ISDN, and SMS texting. Ground Control default configuration enables Standard Internet, phone, and SMS texting services which are the services used by the vast majority of our customers. Streaming services and Fax services may be enabled upon request at any time.
You may request from Ground Control a BGAN usage report that details the amount used over a defined period of time, as well as the remaining Megabytes available in the plan. Phone usage including destination phone numbers are included if requested. Just email email@example.com to request a free usage report.
For clients who are concerned about over using their BGAN Internet service, we offer usage controls that will limit the amount of data transferred over a running day (past 24 hours), a running week or month. Simply choose the maximum number of Megabytes that are to be used in a running day or week or month. This may be configured at any time during the service term.
Another free service from Ground Control are firewall controls that limit Internet traffic to only locations (IP addresses) that you desire. These and blacklists have highly configurable controls ensuring that all traffic from a BGAN terminal is to be used only for its intended purpose. Clients often list Email servers, VPN IP’s, and corporate web assets. More information on Firewall Controls.
