Satellite service provider Speedcast International has announced that it will begin to offer Intellian’s v240MT antenna to its Cruise and Energy customers.
The v240MT is Intellian’s next generation, tri-band and multi-orbit 2.4 meter 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 virtually any satellite constellation within seconds. These frequency-agile and orbit-agnostic capabilities are designed to future-proof the technology for customers seeking the fastest and most reliable broadband connectivity at sea.
Innovative antenna technologies are in high demand in the Cruise and Energy sectors to support data-rich applications. The Intellian v240MT is specifically designed to deliver data rates exceeding 1Gbps, and will provide customers with seamless, high-speed connectivity, essentially giving guests and crew the same connectivity speeds they enjoy at home, while enabling the operator to remotely switch frequency bands or orbits to maximize the operational performance.
“This alliance with Intellian is another solid step in building on our foundation as the leading remote communications service provider,” said Speedcast CEO Pierre-Jean Beylier. “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 commented. “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.”
