BGAN is accessible via a range of small, lightweight satellite terminals, which provide performance options to suit different operational needs. They can be used both indoors and outdoors, being robust enough to withstand challenging environments and extremes of temperature. The smallest terminals are designed to suit single users, for whom portability is a key consideration. The larger terminals offer a WLAN capability and are particularly suitable for small teams that need to establish a temporary office for an extended period. They are also suitable for users requiring higher bandwidth to enable applications such as live broadcasting. Vehicular systems comprise an interior terminal and discreet tracking antenna, which is mounted on the vehicle roof. They provide access to voice and high-speed data while 'on the move'.
