Press Release – Intellian is pleased to announce that the v240MT was selected by industry voters and a panel of technical experts as the inaugural winner of the 2018 Satellite Technology of The Year Award.
The shortlist featured last year’s stand-out technology developments from across the satellite industry, with the v240MT selected to win for its ability to operate with geostationary (GEO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites using C-, Ku- or Ka-band frequencies, and the game-changing flexibility and resilience this provides.
Introduced in 2018, the unique Intellian v240MT is the only 2.4m-class tri-band and multi-orbit VSAT antenna system available. With Intellian’s ground-breaking antenna technology and Intelligent Mediator Solution at its core, the v240MT offers a previously unimaginable level of availability and quality of service for vessels operating globally.
Intellian’s cutting-edge v240MT was recognized for its innovation, benefit to the industry, and overall disruption to the satellite landscape. It’s ability to access nearly all available satellite constellations while anticipating demand from new GEO, MEO and LEO networks paves the way for a new era of high-throughput maritime connectivity.
“It’s an honour to receive the 2018 Satellite Technology of the Year Award as it highlights the unique innovation that enables up to 100 times faster connectivity, while transforming satellite-based services and the user experience,” said Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian after the presentation.
“With an end-user customer recently demonstrating 3Gbps throughput, cruise and energy companies are especially excited about the v240MT. It enables the next level of broadband at sea while mitigating the prospect of further capital expenditure as new high-performance networks in different orbits become available,” adds Mr. Sung.
The publisher and Satellite 2019 show organizers, Via Satellite has a longstanding history of recognizing the people leading the charge for the satellite industry, so the 2018 Satellite Technology of the Year Award is very fitting.
Intellian’s multi-orbit and tri-band v240MT antenna system is the world’s first of its kind that enables communication services in three different frequency bands and tracks both Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites, as well as satellites in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). It delivers data rates exceeding 1 Gbps using a single 2.4-meter reflector. Most importantly, the antenna’s versatility allows it to access to virtually any satellite constellation within seconds.
“Via Satellite is dedicated to recognizing the technology breakthrough that has changed the way the satellite and connectivity industry worked in 2018 and for years to come,” said Holmes. “We’re proud to bestow the 2018 Satellite Technology of the Year award to Intellian’s v240MT Tri-band Antenna System for their achievements in the satellite community.”
On behalf of everyone at Intellian, we thank you for your support and votes.
