INTELLIAN UPGRADES ITS TRI-BAND SATCOMS UNIT

Friday, February 28, 2020 

Mobile satellite communications antenna systems supplier Intellian has launched its next generation tri-band product, the v240MT Gen-II antenna.

Developed from the tri-band v240MT – said to be the first multi-orbit, multi-frequency and auto-switching antenna in the market, with over 150 systems already deployed – the new product adds additional features including the ability to operate multiple antennas seamlessly via its dual datacenter capability, and enhanced Ku-band performance.

The ability to automatically switch between C-, Ku-, and Ka-bands, and between GEO, MEO and LEO orbits, makes the v240MT Gen-II truly vendor agnostic and allows customers to select the best and most economical provider at any time, without hardware modifications. The device is also modem agnostic, effectively allowing users to connect to any network, anywhere, delivering on Intellian’s stated aim to make maritime communications as simple, intuitive and seamless as possible. This flexibility is reinforced by the option to choose BUCs from 40W up to 400W, enabling high throughput out of the box.

Installation and setup have been simplified, bringing costs down, while the optional intelligent mediator enables operation across different frequency bands by providing an interface between multiple modems and/or multiple antennas. With a single antenna this allows best use of the diversity of a tri-band antenna by managing modems for all three bands, while in a dual antenna setup this functionality is extended to ensure seamless connection, as the mediator will switch automatically between antennas if one becomes blocked.

Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian, said: “The v240MT Gen-II sets a new standard for maritime communications, providing customers with enhanced features and higher performance than ever seen before. As our network partners continue to introduce more powerful satellite services to help support customers increased data demands, the v240MT Gen-II is the best solution to maximise the user experience and network efficiency across these services. The future-proof design and system capabilities ensure customers have access to the most advanced technology today, as well as a seamless and cost-effective pathway to new services as they become operational.”
