Intellian, a provider of satellite antenna systems listed on South Korea’s stock exchange KOSDAQ, has announced that SES has endorsed its new tri-band, multi-orbit, 2.4-meter antenna, to be used for SES’ Ku, Ka and C-band satellites.
Known as the v240MT, the Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) broadband antenna is frequency-agile and orbit-agnostic, and can automatically switch between C, Ku, and Ka bands. Targeting the maritime industry, the v240MT delivers connectivity scaling from 100 Mbps through to multiple Gbps of dedicated capacity to a single vessel.
“At SES Networks, we are very focused on solutions that optimize the user experience. As the only satellite operator offering communications services that leverage GEO and MEO satellites, we strongly believe that a multi-orbit, multi-band maritime solution delivers the optimal combination of performance, reliability and, ultimately, user experience at sea,” said Stewart Sanders, Executive Vice President of Technology at SES Networks.
Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian, commented, “I’m proud that we have managed to deliver the world’s first tri-band and multi-orbit antenna to the industry. The collaboration with SES Networks has enabled Intellian to connect vessels with an innovative and powerful solution that delivers record-breaking connectivity speeds across all satellite frequency bands with the introduction of the v240MT system.”
