c.
Leave the terminal to acquire a GPS fix. This may take a few minutes. Once the GPS fix has
been acquired the LCD displays New GPS for 2 seconds.
d.
The LCD displays the new estimated direction and elevation angle to which the antenna should
point. In addition a GPS indicator is displayed to right of the LCD display to indicate that new
GPS coordinates are being used.
Setting up Wideye Sabre 1 with BGAN LaunchPad
Page 6
e.
For subsequent use, the terminal will not acquire a new GPS, but will prompt the user if
previously stored GPS coordinates should be used.
f.
Use the Up and Down Buttons to select Yes and then press Enter if stored coordinates
should be used, or select No and press Enter if a new GPS location is required, then repeat
steps a. through d.
About GPS
The Global Positioning System (GPS) uses 24 orbital satellites to fix the position of the
terminal anywhere on the globe.
•
In normal operation, a GPS receiver, such as that built in to the Terminal, needs to
be able to receive signals from at least three satellites so that it can then calculate
latitude, a longitude and an altitude – this position fix is referred to as a 3dimensional or 3-D fix. If only two GPS satellites can be seen by the GPS receiver,
then the last available altitude measurement is assumed and the GPS receiver
calculates a position fix based on latitude and longitude only. This simpler position
fix is referred to as a 2-dimensional or 2-D fix and is quicker and easier to obtain
than a 3-D fix, but may be less accurate.
Note: You can register with the BGAN network with a 2-D or a 3-D fix.
•
•
The GPS receiver may take between a few seconds and 20 minutes to obtain a GPS
fix, depending on how frequently the GPS receiver is being used. The frequency of
use determines the how quickly the GPS Terminal is able to start.
•
Hot start - if the GPS receiver is being used frequently, (that is, at least every two
to six hours), it is regularly updated with data from the GPS satellites and so only
takes a short time to obtain a GPS fix after being switched on.
•
Warm start - if a GPS receiver has not been used for more than six hours, then it
will take longer to obtain a GPS fix, perhaps up to 45 seconds.
•
Cold start - if the GPS receiver has not been used for some time or is 300 km or
more from where it was last used, it can take between 10 and 20 minutes to
obtain a valid position fix.
Following successful registration and providing the Terminal is left switched on and
remains stationary, the GPS is no longer needed. Periodically, the BGAN terminal
contacts the BGAN network to inform the network that it is still switched on. In
addition, the BGAN network periodically checks each terminal for activity and if
there has been no traffic through the terminal and the terminal has not automatically
contacted the BGAN network as described above, then the terminal will be deregistered from the network.

Connecting the terminal to your computer
Connecting over Ethernet
Note
For the Ethernet interface to work without any further setup, your computer must be
configured to obtain an IP address and a DNS server address automatically. To check that
these settings are configured on your computer, refer to the documentation for your
operating system.
Note
For details on how to configure DNS Server addresses for the terminal, refer to Ethernet on
page 20.
To connect the BGAN terminal to your computer using Ethernet:
a.
Insert one connector on the supplied Ethernet cable into the terminal’s Ethernet port.
b.
Insert the other connector into your computer’s Ethernet port. A message confirming
connection is displayed on your computer.
Tip
Some corporate computers are configured with a static IP address. If your computer has a
static IP address, you must go into your operating system’s IP Properties option and
change your computers settings to obtain an IP address automatically before your computer
can communicate with the terminal.
IP addressing on the Wideye Sabre 1
•
In normal operation, the terminal uses its built-in DHCP server to allocate IP
addresses automatically. If you want to manually set up IP addressing, you can
use the terminal’s default range of IP addresses, as shown below:
Terminal IP address
192.168.1.35
Default range of IP addresses
192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.50
Subnet mask
255.255.255.0
If you use BGAN.INMARSAT.COM as your
APN, the default DNS addresses are
172.30.66.7 and 172.30.34.7
DNS
If you use another APN, your Distribution
Partner supplies you with a DNS address
for your APN.
Refer to the Solutions Guide document “BGAN and IP data connections” for further
details.

3.5
Installing BGAN LaunchPad
To install BGAN LaunchPad on your computer:
a.
Insert the BGAN LaunchPad Installation CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive.
b. Follow the on-screen instructions.
Interfacing with the BGAN terminal
BGAN LaunchPad is Inmarsat’s easy-to-use software interface, that provides step-bystep instructions on connecting to the BGAN network and setting up satellite
connections. You can use BGAN LaunchPad to manage data connections, send and
receive text messages, monitor telephone usage and upgrade software. The interface
can be installed on any computer connected to the terminal and accessed by doubleclicking on a desktop icon. With BGAN LaunchPad, you have access to all the latest
customisation options and features of the BGAN service. You can also update
firmware automatically using BGAN LaunchPad.
3.6
Registering with the network
Establishing a connection and registering successfully with the network requires careful orientation
of the terminal towards the satellite, a process called pointing. Accurate and precise pointing is
important, because a badly-pointed antenna can reduce the data rate achievable over the network,
or even restrict access to services. When pointing is complete, you can register the terminal with
the BGAN network.
Use BGAN LaunchPad to step through the process of pointing the terminal and registering with the
network. In addition, you can use the terminal’s signal strength indicator lights and, optionally, the
terminal’s audio buzzer to point the terminal. To do this:
a.
Open BGAN LaunchPad by clicking on the BGAN LaunchPad icon on your desktop.
The following screen is displayed:
The status bar displays the message In Pointing Mode.
Note
The coverage map and “Welcome to BGAN” area are provided to assist you in pointing,
but the location shown may not correspond to your GPS fix. This does not affect
network registration.
Setting up Wideye Sabre 1 with BGAN LaunchPad
Page 9
b.
c.
BGAN LaunchPad suggests the recommended pointing angle and direction to correctly
position the terminal.
•
Using the terminal’s built-in compass, rotate the terminal left or right until it points in the
correct horizontal direction, known as the azimuth. Make sure the compass is horizontal to
get an accurate reading.
•
Tilt the terminal slowly up or down until it points in the correct vertical direction, known as the
elevation.
Monitor the signal strength on the status bar:
Use this information to further adjust the antenna position to obtain optimal signal strength.
d.
Note
If the signal strength is not sufficient, registration may not be possible and the
terminal may not be able to open a data connection.
Note
Wideye Sabre 1 has a built-in audio buzzer that can be used to assist with antenna
pointing
When you have positioned the terminal to obtain the optimal signal strength, you are ready to
register with the network. Click on Register with Network now.
By default, BGAN LaunchPad opens a standard IP data connection after successful
registration. The status zone reads Standard Data Connection Open. Ready for Phone,
Text and Data.
Using BGAN LaunchPad during pointing and registration
Note the following about BGAN LaunchPad during pointing and registration:
•
During pointing, the location shown on the coverage map is based on your previous
location. The coverage map displays your current position only after you exit pointing
and register with the network.
•
During pointing, signal strength information is provided by the satellite’s global beam.
Once you have registered, the signal strength is provided by the satellite’s regional
beam. Therefore the signal strength bar shown in BGAN LaunchPad may change after
registration. Once you have opened a data connection, signal strength is provided by
the spot beam.
•
To check the actual signal strength, select Help > Diagnostic Report in BGAN
LaunchPad. The actual signal strength is given in the dialog box that is displayed.

Tip
You can make or receive phone calls and send and receive a text message even if you do
not have an IP data connection.
Automatic mode
Terminal automatic data connection – By default, the terminal automatically opens a data
connection after you register with the network. However, there is a minimum charge for
opening an IP data connection (unless you are on a lease package) and data may be
transferred across the connection even if you are not actively using an application (for
example, your computer may be receiving automatic updates).
If you do not want to incur these charges, you can switch off the automatic connection
feature using BGAN LaunchPad. Refer to “BGAN LaunchPad User Guide” for details.

assigned a data connection. All other users must use BGAN LaunchPad to open their own
data connection.
Setting up Wideye Sabre 1 with BGAN LaunchPad
Page 12
Opening a standard data connection
By default, when you first register with the BGAN network, the terminal opens a standard IP data
connection. The standard connection is an always-on, best effort connection and is suitable for
most basic data applications. It is charged by the amount of data sent and received.
To check that the standard connection is open, select the Data tab in BGAN LaunchPad.
The following screen is displayed:
If the standard connection is open, the words Disconnect Standard are displayed below the
connection icon.
Note
If the standard connection is closed, the words Connect Standard display below the
connection icon. Click on the icon to open the standard connection.
You can now browse the Internet, send and receive email and use other IP applications. All traffic
is transferred across the standard connection.
Note
If more than one user wants to open a data connection, each user must open a separate
session of BGAN LaunchPad. Refer to “BGAN and IP data connections” for details.
Opening a streaming data connection
If you require a guaranteed data rate for your connection (if, for example, the application is time
critical), you can connect using one of the dedicated streaming connections at the following data
rates:
•
32kbps streaming
•
64kbps streaming
Setting up Wideye Sabre 1 with BGAN LaunchPad
Page 13
Each streaming class connection is charged by the length of time that the connection is live. When
you open a streaming connection, the standard connection is closed.
Tip
By default, error correction (also called network packet retransmission) is switched off.
Inmarsat recommends that you turn error correction off for UDP/IP connections, as this
feature is not required for this connection type. Refer to “BGAN and IP data connections”
for details.
To open a streaming connection:
a.
Select the Data tab in BGAN LaunchPad:
The following screen is displayed:
b.
Select the required streaming connection, for example 64 Streaming. You will be prompted to
confirm that you want to close your current connection and open a new connection, charged by
time:
c.
Click on OK. The new data connection opens and the following screen is displayed:
The Standard connection is closed and the 64 Streaming connection is open. All traffic is
transferred across the selected streaming connection.
Note
If you subsequently want to close the streaming connection and open another streaming
connection, or reopen the standard connection, repeat steps 1 to 3.
Note
If you want to close the currently open connection, click on the icon.
Setting up Wideye Sabre 1 with BGAN LaunchPad
Page 14
Configuring a dedicated streaming connection
In addition to the default connections, BGAN LaunchPad enables you to configure and open one or
more dedicated streaming connections (you can associate one of the icons shown above with a
dedicated streaming connection). These are assigned to specific applications, for example Win
Media, to ensure that the connection for this application’s data is not shared with any other
application.
You must open a pre-configured standard or streaming connection (called a primary connection)
before you can open a dedicated streaming connection (secondary connection). This is because
each dedicated streaming connection creates a virtual IP data connection which shares the IP
address of the pre-configured standard or streaming connection.
For details on configuring dedicated streaming connections, using Win Media as the example
application, refer to “BGAN LaunchPad User Guide”.
Traffic Flow Templates
Each dedicated streaming connection is associated with a Traffic Flow Template (TFT). A TFT,
also called an Application Template, assigns a priority to a selected type of traffic in order to
maximize performance.
BGAN LaunchPad supports the following pre-configured TFTs, any one of which can be selected
when you configure a dedicated streaming connection to ensure that the defined traffic has its own
dedicated connection:
•
FTP
•
QuickLink
•
QuickTime
•
Real Media
•
Streambox
•
WinMedia
If you wish to want to define your own TFT for another application, contact your Service Provider for
assistance.
To open a dedicated streaming connection:
a.
Select the Data tab in BGAN LaunchPad.
Setting up Wideye Sabre 1 with BGAN LaunchPad
Page 15
b.
In this scenario, you have set up a dedicated streaming connection for Win Media. The
standard connection is currently open. The newly-created dedicated streaming IP data
connection (Win Media) has been added to the list of available connections.
c.
Select the required dedicated streaming connection, for example Win Media. The following
message is displayed, asking you to confirm that you want to open a dedicated connection in
addition to your current connection:
d.
Click on OK. The new data connection opens and the following screen is displayed:
The Standard and the Win Media connections are both open. All traffic other than Win Media
data continues to use the standard connection.
You can open up to 10 dedicated streaming connections in addition to your default connection.
If you can’t make a data connection:
If you can’t open a data connection, check that the default Access Point Name (APN) is set
correctly. The APN is stored on your SIM and must be configured as the access point for each of
your data connections for the data connection to open successfully.
Tip
If you want to open a dedicated streaming connection, the APN of the dedicated streaming
connection must be the same as that of the existing standard or streaming connection.

Ethernet
The Wideye Sabre 1 Ethernet interface supports two operating modes:
Router Mode. This is the default mode. In this mode the terminal acts as a router. This mode
uses standard TCP/IP over Ethernet to connect to the network. If you choose this mode, the
terminal initially assigns an IP address to the connected device, then allocates a public IP address.
Bridge Mode. In this mode the terminal acts as a modem. This mode requires you to install
device drivers on your computer to create a serial connection. If you choose this mode, the core
network allocates a public IP address directly to your computer (or other connected equipment).
Refer to the documentation supplied with your terminal for details on installing the device drivers.
To activate and configure the Ethernet interface:
Setting up Wideye Sabre 1 with BGAN LaunchPad
