65cm Ku/Ka-band convertible antenna from Intellian

Intellian Technologies is set to introduce a new 65cm Ku/Ka-band convertible satellite communications system, called the v65, that will allow users to access both the Ku-band and Ka-band frequencies on the same antenna, similar to the company’s v100 1-metre unit but on smaller, lighter equipment.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Conventional antenna technology forces a choice between one frequency or the other. CTOs and CFOs are risk averse by nature and want to avoid being limited in their ability to do what’s best for their business at any given time,” said Matthew Galston, director of strategic marketing, Intellian.

“Our new 65cm Ku/Ka convertible platform directly addresses this problem. A minimal investment in a compact conversion kit allows the v65 to move between Ku- and Ka-band operation in as little as 10 minutes.”

The v65 is built upon the same pedestal as Intellian’s GX60 terminal, which is currently deployed on vessels using Inmarsat’s Ka-band Fleet Xpress service. In its Ka-band configuration the v65 is also compatible for use on GX.

“Looking forward, our entire portfolio of antenna systems will upgradable to GX, including the 80cm solution and the larger 1.5 and 2.4m antennas,” added Eric Sung, president and CEO, Intellian.

Marlink, a long-time Intellian partner, will be amongst the first to offer the v65 for use on its 60cm global Ku-band network, while also being able to offer a conversion path to Fleet Xpress if required as a Value Added Reseller of the Inmarsat Ka-band service.

“Marlink is committed to delivering the best solution for each of our customers, whatever that may be,” said Tore Morten Olsen, president of Marlink.

“With offerings in both Ku- and Ka-bands, this is an ideal product to provide the kind of flexibility required by any global business.”{/mprestriction}
