Designed for merchant and offshore vessels using Inmarsat’s I4 satellite broadband, the FB500 terminals will replace Hanjin Shipping’s current F77 systems.
Intellian says that the installation process has already commenced and will be completed over the coming months.
With the largest antenna in Intellian’s FleetBroadband range, the FB500 system provides a simultaneous voice and data service. The terminal has an IP handset interface and an IP connection for e-mail, internet and intranet access including a secure VPN. Intellian says that the FB500 achieves data rates of up to 432 kbps with up to 256 kbps for streaming IP on a customised Inmarsat service.
“This is a significant order for us from one of the world’s leading commercial shipping operators,” said president and CEO Eric Sung. “Our FleetBroadband products are some of the most advanced, reliable and cost-effective systems available and we are seeing a significant increase in our market share in this sector.”
