v240MT

2.4m Multi-orbit & Tri-band VSAT Antenna System

The v240MT is the world’s first and only multi-orbit and Tri-band antenna system that enables communication services in three different frequency bands and tracks Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites.

v240MT
Key Features

Frequency & Orbit Agnostic Capabilities

The Intellian v240MT solution provides the unique capability of switching among different satellite frequency bands and satellite orbits as required without any user intervention

True 2.4m Multi-band RF Performance

The v240MT provides unsurpassed seamless operation for vessels in cruise and energy industries requiring increased bandwidth, wider coverage, and greater reliability.

Fiber Optic Solution

The Fiber optic solution, based on our extensive fiber optic experience, results in minimal signal loss regardless of interconnecting cable length. It enables greater bandwidth capability compared to a coaxial cable connection between an ADU and BDU. The Fiber optic solution is a significant benefit for high throughput installations and allows for quicker and more flexible installation solutions.

The Intelligent Mediator  

This incredibly sophisticated and flexible system allows for automatic switching between networks, satellites, orbits, and importantly, provides support for Dual Data Centers. All of this happens automatically, without any user intervention, to ensure data integrity and no dropped calls.

  • Zero signal loss up to 2km distances
  • Simple installation with compact equipment

Intelligent Mediator Support

The Intellian Intelligent Mediators enable operation across different frequency bands at same time with multiple antennas along with multiple modems. Ensuring seamless connection by switching antennas automatically if one antenna becomes blocked or or is out of coverage.

  • All-in-One Device to manage Multi-Orbit, Multi-Band antennas
  • RF Switching between multiple modems
  • Mediator for redundant antenna system
  • Smart handover for NGSO satellite tracking
  • MEO/GEO hybrid operation

Multi-Antenna Operation with Dual Data Centers

Supporting Dual Data Centers on a ship ensures uninterrupted connectivity. The identical mirrored systems, including a full complement of antenna controllers, Intelligent Mediators and satellite modems, can handle instant changeover with no manual intervention, an important factor in crew safety and vessel operations.

  • Provide system redundancy of the satellite networks
  • Automated instant changeover with no manual intervention 
  • Up to 3x antennas connectable via Intelligent Mediator IM3
  • Up to 8x antennas and 8 modems connected using the Intelligent Mediator IM8

The benefits of a 2.4m satellite communication solution

Staying connected at sea is important for Crew and Guests, the v240MT provides the level of connectivity you might expect when onshore. Allowing enterprise apps and business applications to run the operations of the vessel, while still being able to provide for crew and guest welfare.
