Intellian released the latest model in its new NX Series VSAT antenna portfolio. 

The v130NX is reported to be the world’s first Ku-Ka convertible VSAT terminal with a 1.25-m reflector, qualifying it for high-speed global Internet on ships, offshore vessels and superyachts.

v130NX is a flexible system supporting Ku-band and Ka-band (2.5 GHz Wide) networks. It is also compatible with GEO (Geostationary Earth Orbit), MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) and LEO (Low Earth Orbit) constellations. As with all NX Series antennas, the v130NX is easily converted from Ku-band to Ka-band by changing the Radio Frequency (RF) Assembly and Feed, as the reflector and radome are already optimized for operation across both frequency bands.

The v130NX features a highly efficient design and high-power BUC options up to 40 W. Its smart satellite handover capability (enabled by an integral mediator and orbit-agnostic tracking proficiency) is designed to provide a seamless network service on practically any satellite. This fulfills the need for enhanced resilience, reliability, and redundancy while maximizing the long-term value of the investment by reducing the cost of migrating to future GEO High Throughput Satellites (HTS) and low-latency MEO and LEO networks.
