The World’s First Future Proof Ku- to Ka-band Convertible Sub-1m VSAT

Intellian v85NX is a Ku- to Ka-band convertible maritime VSAT antenna system with a 85cm diameter reflector. The compact 85cm antenna’s smaller footprint allows installation on smaller vessels yet still allows the system to operate on a 1-meter designed network.

Key Features

Quick Ku- to Ka-band Conversion

The v85NX can be easily converted from Ku- to Ka-band operation by changing the center-mounted RF assembly.

Higher RF Performance

The system comes standard with 8W BUC and can be upgraded to operate with 16W or 25W BUC’s.

Quick and Easy Deployment

Single cable design and no internal shipping brackets reduce installation time and cost.

Embedded Dual Antenna Mediator

Intellian’s NX series fully supports dual antenna operations, without an additional mediator or RF splitters.
