Used in more than 120,000 satellite communication terminals
The 3GPP/ETSI (ETSI TS 124 008) conformant implementation has been approved for and deployed in more than 120,000 satellite communication terminals for the Inmarsat BGAN network in all segments; both land, maritime, and aeronautical. The implementation has been extensively conformance tested against 3G conformance tests on multiple platforms.
With the first terminals being launched in 2004, it now has over fifteen years of continued field proven use as well as continued maintenance and upgrades.
