Intellian expands dual-band Ku/Ka VSAT antenna range

Intellian has expanded its XEO Series of terminals with the addition of its new X100D and X150D dual-band Ku/Ka multi-orbit VSAT antennas with electronic switching.

The XEO Series delivers Ka- and Ku-band connectivity through a single feed. The units are electronically switchable and compatible with multi-orbit networks to support users’ choice of different providers, offering LEO, MEO, GEO and HEO tracking capabilities.

The X100D will be available later this month, featuring a 105cm diameter reflector and weighing in at 150kg, with the X150D expected to follow in Q3 2023.

“At Intellian, we’re proud to be at the forefront of satellite communication technology and our XEO Series portfolio is a testament to that heritage,” said Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian.

“These solutions are built for seamless connectivity, delivering true broadband performance with global coverage that our maritime customers require. XEO Series is the pinnacle of innovation, enabling the much sought-after flexibility to switch with ease between different network bands and tap into new and existing constellations across LEO, MEO, GEO and HEO.”

“As the first to bring a commercially available solution to the market, we’ve significantly transformed the way our customers access hybrid connectivity on board their vessels. The X100D, X130D, X130D PM and X150D all enable the agility required for customers to have highly responsive connectivity, as and when they need it.”

Intellian’s mediator system, the IM8, can be integrated to support multi-antenna operation, allowing for electronic switching between Ku-band and Ka-band operations with a single command using an API.
