Intellian has received Inmarsat type approval for its new GX100NX antenna, authorising its use on the Global Xpress satellite network and for the Inmarsat Fleet Xpress service.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Launched in May 2019, the GX100NX unlocks the full potential of Maritime VSAT service Fleet Xpress, providing maritime customers with maximised RF performance and 10W high power BUC option to ensure high availability of Ka-band connectivity.

The GX100NX is a new addition to Intellian’s NX series, a new generation of faster, lighter and stronger antennas delivering high performance on all major satellite networks. The product features a single cable design, which along with new AptusNX software, enables fast installation and maintenance.

The installation process has been streamlined to deliver cost efficiencies, without compromising on link performance.  The NX platform is based on a modular design, enabling spare part stocks to be reduced by up to 40 per cent.

The GX100NX Below Deck Unit integrates the Antenna Control Unit, GX modem and mediator function for dual antenna configuration in a single box, further reducing the time and costs of installation and commissioning.

“We are extremely pleased to receive Inmarsat Type Approval for the GX100NX. As a leading maritime VSAT provider, we have incorporated all of our engineering capability to ensure that it is easier, stronger and faster in the context of installation, operation and performance,” said Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian.

Ronald Spithout, president, Inmarsat Maritime, commented: “With close to 7,000 vessels already installed, Fleet Xpress is powering digitalisation in the maritime industry and this has been achieved by working with innovative manufacturing partners such as Intellian. We welcome the development of the GX100NX and look forward to our customers making the most of the new features it offers.”

The GX100NX will be commercially available in July 2019. {/mprestriction}
