The MCG-101 is a flexible, Iridium-based satellite terminal and platform for voice, data, GPS tracking, machine-to-machine communications and more. The included WiFi router and Linux processor allow for an endless number of uses – from simple WiFi hotspot to powerful commercial hub for collecting and repeating sensor data.

An intelligent PBX solution provides voice connectivity for multiple users. WiFi and associated Apps provide email and weather access. Onboard GPS can share locations over satellite, and compatible long-range WiFi antennas let MCG-101 serve as an Internet-of-Things (IoT) hub for sensing and monitoring applications. Services and features include:

  • Ethernet
  • FXS Telephone Jack
  • Android and iPhone Mobile Calling
  • WiFi
  • Firewalling
  • Power over Ethernet Support
  • GPS
  • Built-in Tracking
  • SMS
  • SBD
  • Web-Based Administration

How it works?

The MCG-101 is a mounted satellite terminal that contains an Iridium satellite modem to provide voice and data services to multiple connected devices, such as traditional analog or SIP phones, smartphones, tablets, computers, and laptops. The terminal contains an internal SIM card that must be installed properly for the system to function normally. The MCG-101 also has an exposed SMA connector for attaching the required external antenna, which is procured separately in order to accommodate your specific needs, as the device is hardware agnostic. The status of the entire system can be monitored through a connected computer or through an optional DPL handset.
