Incorporate BGAN capability efficiently

In need of incorporating BGAN capability on Software Defined Radio (SDR) platforms? The Gatehouse BGAN solution for SDR is a complete waveform. Type approved by Inmarsat for the Inmarsat BGAN satellite system. Applicable to any segment; commercial or military. By using the BGAN SDR solution, you will have the ability to incorporate BGAN capability on your SDR platform with a minimum of effort.

The BGAN waveform includes all the software necessary to use the BGAN services. The solution includes code for FPGAs, DSPs and GPPs. It also handles all UE (user equipment) classes and at start up the actual UE class will be configured.

The solution is developed to be easily portable across SDR platforms and will, as far as possible, only require standard SCA interfaces. The waveform has an interface for antenna pointing and control. The physical layer manages the RF hardware, HPA and LNA. The platform can be any standard SCA compliant platform.
