Low Profile BGAN (LPB) Terminal

LPB, the world’s first lay flat BGAN antenna, with exceptionally low power consumption for off-the-grid installations

The Hughes Low Profile BGAN (LPB) modem and antenna provide the user with reliable, remotely controllable satellite connectivity over the Inmarsat BGAN network. The LPB modem delivers exceptional low power consumption (< 1 W idle) for off-the-grid installations. Both modem and antenna are IP-67 rated for outdoor use and can also be installed below ground-surface for inconspicuous operation. A thin layer of dry, non-metallic material over the antenna is permissible during TX/RX operation.

Main Features

  • Auto-on/autocontext activation automatically restores power and Packet Data Protocol (PDP) connection to the unit following loss of power and/or IP connection
  • Remote control via SMS—allows command and control of the terminal using SMS, including configuration, debugging, and access to its Web interface
  • Ultra-low power consumption
  • Basic installation; no PC required
  • Built-in GPS receiver
  • Over the air firmware upgrades
  • Minimal pointing of antenna is required; lay antenna flat and point arrow toward the satellite (antenna operates between 30°–60° elevation angle but can be tilted from horizontal, if necessary, at greater elevations.)


  • IP Ethernet connection via IP-67 rated 6-pin Amphenol connector
  • Power-on switch signal via IP-67 rated 3-pin power input connector
  • IP-67 TNC RF connection on modem to lay flat antenna
  • USB for local configuration and setup

Package Contents

  • Low profile BGAN (LPB) modem
  • Low profile, lay flat, passive antenna
  • 3 m RF antenna cable (TNC)
