Intellian adds new FB500 antenna

Intellian has developed a new FB500 terminal, designed specifically for Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress (FX) service combining Ka-band with L-band FleetBroadband (FB).

The system was created at Intellian’s new L-Band Centre of Excellence in London, UK, and joins the company’s Fleet One and FB250 antennas for Inmarsat L-band services.

The new unit offers data connectivity up to 492kbps, and comes with a WAN port, built-in firewall, analogue and digital voice lines, soft PABX, and support for terrestrial networks including 4G/LTE/5G.

“The development of this flagship L-band maritime user terminal is thanks to the great collaboration between Inmarsat and our team in our L-Band Centre of Excellence in UK and Korea,” said Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian.

“The new FB500 is the latest product to be launched as a result of our long-standing relationship with Inmarsat – it’s our 11th product exclusively designed for their networks. By offering customers across all maritime sectors dependable, affordable, and feature-rich terminals, these new terminals create opportunities for expansion in both existing and new markets.”
