Speedcast has announced that it is to offer Intellian's tri-band and multi-orbit v240MT antenna to its cruise and energy customers.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The v240MT is a 2.4 metre antenna for use on Ku, Ka and C-band satellites. The antenna will provide Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) broadband access to most satellite constellations within seconds.

The frequency-agile and orbit-agnostic capabilities are designed to provide fast and reliable broadband connectivity at sea.

The Intellian v240MT is specifically designed to deliver data rates exceeding 1Gbps, and will provide customers with seamless, high-speed connectivity, giving guests and crew the same connectivity speeds as at home, while enabling the operator to remotely switch frequency bands or orbits to maximise the operational performance.

Speedcast CEO Pierre-Jean Beylier stated: "This alliance with Intellian is another solid step in building on our foundation as the leading remote communications service provider. Innovation is critical to our success and adding the v240MT antenna to our portfolio enhances our ability to deliver dependable, high-speed and seamless network services in the bandwidth-hungry cruise market and in the energy market where we see early signs of recovery."

"With the large anticipated growth of connectivity demand in cruise and energy markets, we see a great opportunity with Speedcast to expand our footprint," Intellian CEO Eric Sung added. "Speedcast has spent 20 years building a reputation as the largest remote communications service provider and the leader in the Cruise and Energy segments. We expect this alliance will accelerate our penetration into these markets and create significant expansion opportunities for Intellian."{/mprestriction}
