Intellian launches 1.5m Ku to Ka VSAT convertible antenna

Intellian has introduced its new 1.5m Ku to Ka convertible VSAT terminal, to support 2.5GHz Wide Ka-band networks as well as GEO (Geostationary Earth Orbit), MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) and LEO (Low Earth Orbit) constellations.

The unit can be converted from Ku-band to Ka-band by changing the RF Assembly and Feed, as the reflector and radome are designed for operation across both frequency bands. Intellian says the antenna has already delivered speeds of 830Mbps in trials.

The antenna design is based on Intellian’s new NX platform, which allows the equipment to use a single cable combining Tx, Rx, and DC power, to simplify installation.

“The industry-leading performance, simplified installation and ensured compatibility with future constellations and networks positions our new 1.5m antennas as one of the most innovative, flexible and cost-effective connectivity platforms available for diverse users on land and at sea,” said Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian.
