Speedcast has announced a new deal with Intellian to offer the Korean antenna manufacturer’s v240MT tri-band antenna to its cruise and energy customers.
The v240MT is a multi-orbit 2.4 metre antenna for use with Ku, Ka and C-band satellites. The antenna will provide Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) broadband access to satellite constellations from all major operators, with its frequency-agile and orbit-agnostic capabilities designed to future-proof the technology for any additional forthcoming satellite constellations.
The equipment has been designed to be capable of delivering satellite data rates in excess of 1 Gbps to maritime users, the company said.
“This alliance with Intellian is another solid step in building on our foundation as the leading remote communications service provider,” said Speedcast CEO, Pierre-Jean Beylier.
“Innovation is critical to our success and adding the v240MT antenna to our portfolio enhances our ability to deliver dependable, high-speed and seamless network services in the bandwidth-hungry cruise market and in the energy market where we see early signs of recovery.”
