way it’s a plausible solution for yachts using VSAT as well. “


“What you’re now seeing is that they’re not buying just one subscription, but four or five, and trying to bundle that capacity to make it as efficient as possible. This can also give you extra bandwidth on your yacht in peak periods at less cost; it’s faster, and easier to upgrade or downgrade because it’s like buying another sim card.”


Practicable proposition Increased VSAT service provision flexibility is one thing; but continual investment in the evolution of the hardware itself


is


pivotal. As the leading global producer of


satellite antenna systems, Intellian


has been a key contributor in the drive to make maritime VSAT a practicable and attractive proposition, with an expanding list of pioneering hardware initiatives that hold a conspicuous appeal for customers.


“Similar to us, Intellian has a ‘can-do’ mentality,” Mr Ploch enthuses. “In the multiple projects on which we have partnered up, they have shown great expertise and flexibility, always willing to go the extra mile to find solutions. In addition to their great team, they have developed some of the most reliable and robust products on the market today.”


“Many


of


Intellian’s most beneficial


innovations are embodied in our NX Series range,” notes Intellian CEO Eric Sung. “The recently-introduced v130NX, as an example, is the first ever 1.25m multi-orbit, dual- band VSAT terminal. With its orbit-agnostic tracking capability it will operate with GEO, MEO and LEO constellations so it offers true global coverage, enabling connectivity in polar regions which aren’t yet covered by GEO HTS, and also supports both Ku- and 2.5GHz Wide Ka-band networks: upgrading from Ku-band is effected by simply swapping over the RF assembly and feed.”


Worldwide bandwidth demand is always higher than what’s actually available: even if capacity is increased, people start using more


A growing number of superyacht clients, mindful of the expectation that uninterrupted, always-on broadband coverage will be on tap for crew and guest use irrespective of wherever their cruising itineraries might take them, are deploying a dual-antenna solution


facilitated by another Intellian innovation, the Dual VSAT Mediator, which is a device that is now built into Intellian’s Antenna Control Unit. “This provides a means of controlling two Intellian VSAT systems at the same time,” Mr Sung explains, “so that if one of the antennas should become blocked for any reason, say by adverse conditions or by a part of the vessel’s superstructure, the mediator will automatically, rapidly and smoothly switch across to the other antenna, with no interruption to the service. Users can also choose to manually select one of the antennas if so desired.”


Into tomorrow


As regards the future for superyacht VSAT and the multi-orbit, multi-band services facilitated by the Intellian NX Series, Mr Ploch of OmniAccess is upbeat. “VSAT communications will experience a revolutionary change in the coming years with the introduction of LEO constellations that are capable of providing the true ‘at home’ user experience yacht clients are coming to expect, even in some of the most remote locations around the globe. These satellites’ proximity to the Earth – 1,000km, versus the 36,000km orbits of current GEO satellites – will substantially improve speed and provide lower latency.”
