Pointing the Antenna of your BGAN 510

Before you can use the BGAN network, you must
point the antenna in the direction of the
satellite and find the best possible signal strength.

You can use the EXPLORER Connect app or the web interface to help you with the pointing
process.

To start the pointing procedure from
the web interface, do as follows:

  1. If the pointing process is not automatically started, select inline-image

    The signal strength is shown on the screen.
  2. Turn and tilt the antenna slowly until you have obtained the highest possible signal
    strength.
  3. Click
    OK
    .

    The terminal will now try to register on the BGAN network.
