Kymeta flat antenna prepares for 2017 launch Featured

Flat panel antenna company Kymeta has completed a series of performance tests during a week-long demonstration of the technology at the Monaco Yacht Show, ahead of pilot production of the antennas in December 2016 and commercial availability in Q2 of next year.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The company says it achieved data rates of 65 Mbps down and 6 Mbps up during the tests, and a 2.9 dB additional gain when combining two of the mTennau7 antenna subsystem modules (ASMs).

The ASMs were also able to simultaneously receive eight live Panasonic multicast eXTV channels, perform multiple live Skype video sessions, carried multiple HD and Ultra HD Netflix video sessions, and provide Wi-Fi access to an average of 80 users at any one time during the show.

“We are laying a strong foundation for our maritime market launch and it is exciting to share these results with our partners and customers,” said Håkan Olsson, vice president of maritime, Kymeta.

“The demonstration of the maritime product throughout the Monaco Yacht Show will be closely followed by further product testing on various vessel types in December, and continue in early 2017 through commercial availability in Q2 2017.”

Kymeta and its partners including Panasonic, iDirect, Intelsat, Intellian, and e3 form the ecosystem that will support the mTenna technology deployment.

“Several of the world’s most iconic yachts have now signed up for the Kymeta mTenna technology as a direct result of the successful demonstration in Monaco, with many other commitments from superyacht owners and designers expected to take place over the next few months,” said Mr Olsson.{/mprestriction}
