Speedcast Offers Intellian v240MT Antenna

Thursday, March 7, 2019

Satellite communications provider Speedcast International said it will begin to offer Intellian’s v240MT antenna to customers in the cruise and offshore energy sectors.

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 has the capability to provide Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) broadband access to virtually any satellite constellation within seconds. Intellian said the v240MT is designed to deliver data rates exceeding 1Gbps, and will provide seamless, high-speed connectivity, 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.”
