Speedcast to offer tri-band Intellian antenna to energy and cruise markets

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.

“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.”
