Entering the PIN using a phone or IP handset
To enter the PIN
If you have a phone connected to the terminal, you can use it to enter the PIN at start up.
Do as follows:
Dial the PIN the same way you would dial a phone number:
•
For an analog or ISDN phone:
Pick up the phone. When the terminal is waiting for a PIN, you will hear 2 beeps - pause - 2
beeps - etc.
Dial <PIN> followed by #.
When you hear a “busy” tone or a dialing tone, the PIN has been accepted and you can hang
up or dial a number.
•
For an IP handset:
Select the BGAN menu, select Enter PIN and enter the user name and password for the
terminal. Then enter the PIN for the terminal.
Note that the menu item “Enter PIN” is only available if the PIN has not yet been entered.
Wrong PIN
Analog phone or ISDN phone: If, instead of the busy tone or dialing tone, you continue to hear 2
beeps - pause - 2 beeps - etc., it means the PIN was not accepted. Check that you have the correct
PIN and try again.
If a wrong PIN has been entered three times, you will hear 3 beeps - pause - 3 beeps - etc. This
means you have to enter the PUK (PIN Unblocking Key) provided with your SIM card.
After entering the PUK, you must enter a new PIN of your own choice (4 to 8 digits long).
Dial the following:
<PUK> * <New PIN> * <New PIN> followed by # or off-hook key.
Example: If the PUK is 87654321 and the new PIN is 1234, dial
87654321 * 1234 * 1234 followed by # or off-hook key.
If you enter 10 wrong PUKs, the SIM card will no longer be functional. Contact your Airtime
Provider for a new SIM card.
98-126882-B
Entering the SIM PIN for the terminal

Chapter 3: Operating the system
Selecting the call type
Definition
The phone connection can use one of the following call types:
•
Standard Voice, which is a low-tariff voice connection compressed to 4.0 kbps,
•
3.1 kHz Audio, which is a high quality connection used for Premium Voice, G.3 fax or analog
modem,
•
UDI or RDI (only on ISDN interface), which is used for G4 fax or data.
In the web interface you can set up which type of connection to use by default when you make or
receive a call from the Phone/Fax or ISDN interface or from an IP handset connected to the LAN
interface.
When connecting a fax or a modem to the Phone/Fax interface you must use 3.1 kHz Audio.
Example: If you always have a fax connected to the same Phone/Fax interface you can set this
interface to 3.1 kHz Audio only. This will mean that if an incoming Standard Voice call is
received, this Phone/Fax interface will not ring.
When connecting a G4 fax or a modem to the ISDN interface in the EXPLORER 727 system you must
use UDI.
Selecting the default outgoing call type
To select the default call type for outgoing calls, do as follows:
•
ISDN. Select the call type in the web interface under SETTINGS > ISDN.
For further information, see Configuring the ISDN interface on page 65.
•
Phone/Fax. Select the call type for each port in the web interface under SETTINGS >
Phone/Fax.
For further information, see Configuring the Phone/Fax interface on page 64.
•
IP handset. Select the call type for each handset in the web interface under SETTINGS >
IP Handset > Call settings. For further information, see Setting the call types for IP handsets on
page 77.
Overriding the default outgoing call type
To override the default setting for a specific outgoing call, do as follows:
•
To use Standard Voice for the call,
dial 1* before the number.
•
To use 3.1 kHz Audio for the call,
dial 2* before the number.

Standard or Streaming data on LAN
Definition
The BGAN network supports different classes of data connection to the Internet. The main classes
are Standard data and Streaming data.
•
Using a Standard data connection, several users can share the data connection
simultaneously. This type of connection is ideal for TCP/IP traffic such as e-mail, file transfer,
and Internet and intranet access.
The user pays for the amount of data sent and received.
•
Using a Streaming data connection, you get an exclusive, high-priority connection, ensuring
seamless transfer of data. This type of connection is ideal for time critical applications like live
video over IP.
The user pays for the duration of the connection (per minute charge).
Note
For optimum performance it is important that you select the right traffic class when
defining profiles for your connection.
You can set up various types of connection using the profiles and traffic flow filters. For further
information, see Using profiles on page 101 and Using traffic flow filters on page 104.

Overview
The I/O interface on the terminal has 5 configurable I/O pins. You can set up the function of each
pin in the web interface. The default functions of the I/O pins are as follows:
•
Pin 1: Ringer output.
This pin changes state from low to high when the terminal is notified of an incoming call from
the satellite interface. When the call is answered, or the caller gives up and releases the call,
the pin changes back to low.
•
Pin 2: Warning/Error output.
This pin provides an external signal that indicates active warning/error condition(s). The
signal stays active until all warnings/errors are cleared.
•
Pin 3: Mute output.
The mute output pin provides an external signal that is active during a phone call. The signal
can be used to mute external equipment, such as a car-radio.
•
Pin 4: Radio silence input.
When active the terminal observes Radio Silence. The terminal gracefully closes all open
connections, and deregisters from the BGAN network. No transmission is allowed until the pin
is deactivated.
•
Pin 5/8: Ignition input.
The ignition function uses pin 5 together with pin 8 (DC in). Connect the appropriate pin to the
ignition key switch of the vehicle as follows:
If the input should be active high, connect pin 5 to Ground, and use pin 8 to switch on the
terminal by pulling it high (10-32 V DC).
If the input should be active low, connect pin 8 to positive DC voltage, and use pin 5 to switch
on the terminal by pulling it low (< 1.2 V DC).

Managing LAN network users
Introduction
The network management system
The network management system divides the users of the EXPLORER 727 terminal into network
user groups. Each network user group has a profile which determines how the users connect to
the Inmarsat BGAN network. The network user groups can allow or restrict certain services for
different users.
The EXPLORER 727 terminal supports up to 11 different network user groups and global IP
addresses.
The steps necessary for managing network users include:
1.
Defining a network user group. See Setting up the network user groups on page 81.
The network user groups determine settings such as:
• QoS (Standard/Streaming),
• IP addressing (Static/Dynamic)
• Internet access mode (Router Mode/Bridge Mode/No Internet Access)
2. Identifying a network device. See Managing network devices on page 85.
The network devices are identified by their IP address, MAC address and (optionally) device
name.
3.
Associating the network user group and the network device. See Using the network
classification table on page 87.
The network classification table determines which devices should belong to which network
user group.
Access to the network management settings
Access to the network management settings requires an Administrator password.
The Administrator can create and manage network user groups and set up a network classification
table defining priorities for devices, network groups and LAN ports.
CAUTION! All user connections to the LAN interface may be affected when you
change the settings below, including your own current connection to the web
interface!

Chapter 4: Using the web interface
Setting up the network user groups
Overview
A network user group, in this context, is a group of network users sharing the same Quality of
Service profile and network parameters.
There are 11 configurable network user groups. For the Default user group, certain settings are
locked, to make sure there is always one functional user group available. For example, the Default
user group does not allow you to select a Bridge mode connection.
Note
The network user groups cannot be deleted. If you do not want to use them, click Edit
and select Disabled at Status in the NETWORK USER GROUP field.
Editing a network user group
Do as follows:

Chapter 4: Using the web interface
• Bridge mode is an exclusive connection, with NAT disabled. Use this mode together with a
network classification entry that selects a single computer (see Using the network
classification table on page 87). This mode is not available in the Default user group.
• No internet access means no connection to the Internet is allowed. Use this setting e.g. for
IP handsets, where an Internet connection is not required. The external voice connection is
still available; this setting only affects communication over the Internet.
6. Select Dynamic IP address.
This is the IP address used externally on the satellite network.
If you want to use a static IP address, and your subscription allows for it, you must still leave
this setting at Dynamic. Then select SIM default in step 8. and type in the APN user name and
password from your provider in step 9.
Your terminal will then use the static IP address set up for your SIM card.

If your APN uses a password, type in the user name and password provided from the Airtime
Provider.
Note
If you are going to use the static IP address from your SIM card, the user name and
password are mandatory! See step 6. above.
10. At Automatic activation select whether the profile selected in the next step should be
activated automatically or manually.
Note
If the selected primary profile is a Streaming profile, this setting has no effect.
Streaming profiles must always be activated manually from the Dashboard.
• Disabled means you can activate/deactivate the profile from the Dashboard.
• Enabled means the profile is activated automatically.
11. Select the Primary profile.
Select a profile from the Primary scroll list. This profile is used by this network user group as a
first choice, when possible.

Definitions for network terms
APN (Access Point Name)
The APN is used by the network user to establish the connection to the required destination
network. This means that the terminal must know the APN in order to be able to connect to the
destination network.
APNs are provided from the Airtime Provider. They may also be defined on the SIM card.
Header compression
The Header of a data packet contains control information belonging to that packet. The
information in the Header can take up a considerable amount of bandwidth. In order to save
bandwidth, you can use Header Compression, meaning you compress the header information,
leaving some of the information out.
You can select whether or not to use Header Compression for your data transmission.
•
Header Compression enabled: Recommended for low-noise applications.
If you select Header Compression enabled, you will be using less bandwidth on header
information, leaving more bandwidth for the actual payload.
However, if the environment is noisy, the system will have to retransmit information, and you
may end up using more bandwidth than without Header Compression.
•
Header Compression disabled: Recommended in noisy environments.
If Header Compression is disabled, the system will be less sensitive to noise.
Profiles
A profile is a collection of Quality of Service (QoS) settings and other settings defining the mode in
which data is transmitted on an interface. For example, a profile is used to define whether a
connection should be a Standard or Streaming connection.
You can select between a number of predefined profiles or define your own profiles for your data
transmission.
Note
If you have selected more than one profile (one primary and one or more secondary
profiles) for an interface, you must define a traffic flow filter before you can establish a
valid connection.
You need an Administrator password to define profiles and traffic flow filters.
NAT (Network Address Translation)
NAT enables a local-area network to use one set of private IP addresses for internal traffic and an
assigned or static IP address for external traffic. The built-in NAT module in the terminal makes all
necessary address translations between the local-area traffic and the external traffic.
If more than one user is connected, you must select a network user group with Router mode to use
the NAT of the terminal.

Using profiles
What is a profile?
A profile is a collection of Quality of Service (QoS) settings and other settings defining the mode in
which data is transmitted. For example, a profile is used to define whether the connection is a
Streaming connection or a Standard connection.
You can select between a number of predefined profiles or define your own profiles for your data
transmission.
If no traffic flow filters are defined, the Primary profile for a user group is used for all traffic from
that user group. See What are traffic flow filters? in the next section.
For further information on profiles, refer to the 3GPP standard TS 23.107.
Selecting the profiles for a network user group
When you set up a network user group, you select the profiles to use for that user group. You
select a Primary profile and optionally one or more Secondary profiles.
For further information on how to select the profiles, see Managing LAN network users on
page 80.

Chapter 4: Using the web interface
Defining new profiles
When you define your profiles you can select Subscribed for many of the settings. If you select
Subscribed, the value given in your Airtime subscription will automatically be used.
To define a new profile, do as follows:
1.
From the left navigation pane, select ADMINISTRATION > Profiles.
2. In one of the User defined columns, fill in the top field with the name of your profile.
3.
In the Traffic class row of your new profile, select a class from the drop-down list.
Important
For best performance, choose the right traffic class for your application. In
general, Standard data (Background) is best suited for TCP/IP applications, and
Streaming data is best suited for UDP traffic, e.g. live video or audio.
You may select one of the following:
• Conversational is real-time two-way conversation. It is primarily used for voice over IP and
video conferencing.
• Streaming is real-time one-way communication. It is primarily used for video and audio.
• Interactive is two-way communication (not real-time). It is used for communication that is
not very delay-sensitive, such as web browsing, data base retrieval and server access.
Examples of machines interaction with remote equipment are: polling for measurement
records and automatic data base enquiries (tele-machines).
98-126882-B
Administration
102
Chapter 4: Using the web interface
• Background is used for data which is not delay-sensitive, such as E-mails, SMS, download
of databases and reception of measurement records.
4.
Type in the bit rates in kbps in the following rows:
• Maximum bit rate ul (kbps) is the maximum upload bit rate allowed for this profile.
• Maximum bit rate dl (kbps) is the maximum download bit rate allowed for this profile.
• Guaranteed bit rate ul (kbps) is the guaranteed upload bit rate needed for this profile.
• Guaranteed bit rate dl (kbps) is the guaranteed download bit rate needed for this profile.
Note
5.
When you click Apply, the bit rate values you typed in may be rounded off because
only certain values are allowed.
In the Delivery order row, select from the scroll list whether or not data should be delivered in
the same order it was sent. Yes means the data packets are delivered in the same order they
were sent.
6. In the Maximum SDU size (byte) row, type in the maximum allowed packet size in Bytes
(rounded off to nearest 10). The maximum packet size possible is 1520.
7.
In the Delivery of erroneous SDUs row, select one of the following from the list:
• Yes means packets are allowed to contain errors. This setting is suitable for delay-sensitive
transmission, because the need for retransmission is limited. The SDU Error settings in step
8. and step 9. will apply.
• No means packets are not allowed to contain errors, and the SDU Error setting in step 8.
will not be applied. This setting is suitable where error-free transmission is important and
delays are accepted.
• No detect means that errors will not be detected, and the SDU Error setting in step 8. will
not be applied.
8. If you selected Yes in step 7., select from the SDU error ratio drop-down list the fraction of a
packet allowed to be lost or erroneous.
9.
Select from the Residual bit error ratio drop-down list the undetected bit error ratio of a
packet. If no error detection is requested, Residual bit error ratio indicates the bit error ratio
in the delivered packets.
10. In the Transfer delay (ms) row, type in the delay in ms. This is the delay from the time data is
received in the terminal until it arrives at the receiving end.
• If the Transfer delay is 500 ms, error correction is disabled.
• If the Transfer delay is 4000 ms, error correction is applied.
11. In the Traffic handling priority row, select from the drop-down list which priority this
connection should have.
12. Click Apply.
The new profile is now added, and can be selected from the lists of primary and secondary
profiles when you set up your interfaces.

Chapter 4: Using the web interface
Using traffic flow filters
What are traffic flow filters?
When more than one type of traffic is needed, you must use both a primary and one or more
secondary profiles. For the Core network and the terminal to classify packets received from the
external network into the proper profile, you need a traffic flow filter.
A list of traffic flow filters consists of one to eight packet filters, each identified by a unique packet
filter identifier. A packet filter also has an evaluation precedence index that is unique within all
traffic flow filters associated with the profiles that share the same PDP (Packet Data Protocol)
address. Information of source, destination, type of service etc. is combined in each packet filter in
the list.
Purpose of the traffic flow filters
The purpose of the traffic flow filters is to assign different priorities to different types of traffic, in
order to optimize performance.
Example: When you are browsing the Internet, a Standard data connection is normally sufficient.
However, to have a video conference you may need a Streaming connection in order to
obtain a direct connection without interruptions. Your traffic flow filters can define these
priorities, so that your connection automatically switches to Streaming e.g. when you
have a video conference.
