Agiosat rolls out BGAN SNG solution

The Thrane & Thrane Explorer 500 is a BGAN terminal available for use with the Agiosat BGAN Broadcast service.

Agiosat Global Communications’ BGAN Broadcast is a communications system built around a new satellite network providing broadcast journalists with worldwide SNG connectivity to Inmarsat’s BGAN (broadband global area network) satellites.

BGAN Broadcast from Agiosat is a three-part solution consisting of:

  • lightweight, compact, rugged satellite communications terminals that are smaller than a laptop computer and weigh about 3lbs;
  • portable encoders
  • efficient delivery architecture.

Agiosat's exclusive network of owned and operated satellite teleports, terrestrial connectivity and streaming video delivery architecture makes this solution affordable and reliable. Without these resources, news organizations would have to stream video over the public Internet, resulting in potentially low QOS streaming and unsatisfactory picture quality.
