Mobile satellite communication antenna system company Intellian is introducing a new 1.5m Ku to Ka convertible VSAT terminal.

Said to be the world’s first and only 1.5m Ku to Ka convertible VSAT, the v150NX, is a future-proof system supporting 2.5GHz Wide Ka-band networks as well as GEO (Geostationary Earth Orbit), MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) and LEO (Low Earth Orbit) constellations. Its efficient design delivers a claimed best RF performance of any 1.5m system on the market. It is easily converted to Ka-band by changing the RF Assembly and Feed, as the reflector and radome are optimised for operation across both frequency bands.

The Ka-band version, the v150NX Ka terminal, is compatible with future 2.5GHz Wide Ka-band networks and has delivered speeds of 830Mbps in trials. With GEO/MEO/LEO tracking capability, the v150NX Ka is ready for operation with forthcoming new high-speed and low-latency networks.

Both the v150NX and v150NX Ka enable reliable, high-throughput broadband at sea and can be quickly installed to deliver precise, cost-effective satellite tracking as a land gateway antenna system. With its ability to track any satellites on mobile and fixed platforms, it includes smart satellite handover capability enabled by an embedded mediator. Operators can now provide a seamless network with high-speed bi-directional IP connectivity. Additionally, the antenna can be interconnected with no loss of signal even at longer distances, using the Intellian Fiber Link Solution.

Moreover, with the new NX platform, Intellian’s 1.5m satellite communication systems use a single cable, which combines Tx, Rx, and DC power, to simplify installation. A modular design results in lower cost of ownership throughout the lifecycle, while improving reliability and streamlining maintenance.

Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian, said: “The industry-leading performance, simplified installation and ensured compatibility with future constellations and networks positions our new 1.5m antennas as one of the most innovative, flexible and cost-effective connectivity platforms available for diverse users on land and at sea.”

Alongside the new v150NX Ka, Intellian will be launching more new satellite communication technologies, including the all new GX100NX for use on the Global Xpress network and the OW70 for LEO constellations.
