Intellian unveils new 1m dual-band VSAT antenna

Intellian has unveiled its v100NX all-new 1m Ku- to Ka-band convertible maritime VSAT terminal.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The latest NX series antenna is designed to simplify and streamline the entire VSAT lifecycle, enabling access to multiple global satellite communication services and providing the crucial connectivity required to leverage new efficiency and welfare enhancing digital applications.

The Intellian v100NX is a 1m dual-band convertible antenna, future-proof through its GEO (Geostationary Earth Orbit), MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) and LEO (Low Earth Orbit) constellation tracking capabilities. It also features an optimised reflector and radome designed to perform efficiently across 2.5GHz wideband Ka network services in the future.

As with all NX platform antennas systems, the v100NX uses a single coaxial cable combining Tx, Rx, and DC power. This radically simplifies the installation process which saves time and reduces cost. Its standardised modular components lower the total cost of ownership by streamlining onboard maintenance and by further increasing industry leading reliability. The shared common modules provide additional value by reducing spare part stock requirements for service providers, and by enabling a faster repair time for the end-customer.

Intellian’s upgraded antenna management and control platform, the new AptusNX software, also includes a revolutionary installation wizard with a step-by-step commissioning guide for easier setup. Its user-friendly, automated functions minimise operators’ inputs for cable loss compensation, improve line-up testing, as well as remote diagnosis, as the platform sends alerts when predictive maintenance is required.

The launch of the 1m v100NX, the de facto VSAT antenna size within the commercial shipping industry, allows Intellian to offer its next-generation and innovative technologies to a wider section of maritime end-users. According to Intellian, vessels equipped with the v100NX will experience faster and higher performance data and voice services, for operations and crew.

“It’s rewarding to bring all the innovative features of the NX series to an antenna in the industry’s most common size,” stated Eric Sung, CEO, Intellian. “As a highly adaptable, future-proof system, the v100NX provides the most advanced, yet cost-effective platform to leverage new connected applications vital to stay efficient and competitive today and tomorrow.”

The Intellian v100NX will be commercially available in July.{/mprestriction}
