High Efficiency, all-IP terminal for EchoStar Mobile network
With the Hughes 4500 S-band terminal, sites that are otherwise off-grid can be assured of reliable and affordable end-to-end IP data connectivity. The low standby power consumption and weatherproofed integrated Omni antenna makes this hardware perfect for a wide range of fixed and mobile, land and maritime applications seeking high-quality, S-band satellite mobile services.
Supporting numerous applications, such as connected vehicles, industrial, fisheries, resource extraction, environmental monitoring, and Smart-Grid monitoring, the Hughes 4500 S-band terminal offers advantages across many industries and is highly suited to power-challenged locations that rely upon solar-battery arrays with sensitive power budgets.
The installation is highly convenient, consisting of a single 4500 unit that can be placed at the end of a single cable carrying Ethernet and power. The SIM card is then mounted securely inside the 4500 unit. The terminal is environmentally sealed for long-term outdoor installation on a fixed site or a moving vehicle, even including small boats.
