8 May, 2019 – The world’s first 2.4 meter tri-band and multi-orbit maritime VSAT antenna system, the Intellian v240MT, has won Via Satellite’s inaugural Satellite Technology of the Year Award.

The 2018 Satellite Technology of the Year award was presented during a special Awards Luncheon at SATELLITE 2019 today. A hard fought contest, the winner was determined by a combination of expert judges and industry votes.

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 recognised 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.
