New line of FleetBroadband antennas launched by Intellian

Intellian has received type approval from Inmarsat for a new range of FB250 and Fleet One L-band terminals, designed for operation on Inmarsat’s forthcoming ELERA network for connected machinery and IoT.

The new FB250 is designed to act either as a stand-alone primary communications terminal or to be combined with Intellian’s GX60NX and GX100NX for Fleet Xpress (FX) installations. The more compact Fleet One terminal is targeted at smaller fishing and leisure vessels.

Enabling simultaneous voice and data connectivity up to 284kbps, the FB250 includes a built-in firewall, analogue and digital voice lines, soft PABX and a WAN port, which will support terrestrial networks such as 3G/LTE/5G. The Fleet One terminal offers voice and data connectivity of up to 150kbps.

Both units can be installed using a single RF cable for connection between the antenna and below deck unit (BDU), and feature built-in AptusLX management and control software that can be accessed using a laptop or smart device via Wi-Fi or LAN for commissioning and management.

“Our new FB250 and Fleet One terminals are the latest products to be launched as a result of our long-standing partnership with Inmarsat,” said Eric Sung, Intellian CEO.

“We’re delighted to expand our L-Band portfolio and deliver the engineering excellence we’re renowned for to FleetBroadband customers. These new terminals provide opportunities for growth in both new and existing markets through the delivery of reliable, cost-effective and feature-rich terminals to customers across all maritime sectors.

“Our terminals will bring an advanced user experience to primary users through new features and capabilities, whilst the FB250 will also enhance our Fleet Xpress offering, combining with our GX60NX and GX100NX to create the future-proof FX solution.”
