Ku/Ka Electronically Switchable Dual-band Multi-Orbit VSAT

The Intellian X100D is a dual-band VSAT solution that electronically switches between Ku-band and Ka-band operation with a single command. It enables customers with the highest performance, versatility, and high bandwidth demand access to a wide range of service options. This dual band antenna offers seamless connectivity by eliminating the need for conversion kits, or hardware modifications required by conventional terminals.

Key Features

GEO/MEO/LEO tracking capability

Based on Intellian proven antenna design and multi-orbit GEO, MEO, and LEO tracking capabilities, the X100D can operate on any commercial Ku-band and Ka-band (2.5 GHz wide Ka-band coverage) services, enabling access to the highest bandwidth packages worldwide. Optimized to deliver low latency and high speed connectivity, the terminal will allow customers the flexibility to access next-generation LEO services and existing GEO and MEO constellations.

Antenna management platform

AptusNX, provides a responsive web user interface to manage and control the antenna system regardless of device type. AptusNX includes an intelligent installation wizard to simplify system configuration so that users can become connected faster than ever before. The platform also includes a diagnostic function that enables accurate and enhanced antenna performance checks both onboard and remotely. This reduces the need for onboard service personnel and improves performance.

All-in-One below deck terminal

Only Intellian provides a below deck terminal fully integrated into a single 1U, 19” rack module, reducing installation time & cost. Antenna mediator and modem mediator included.

High power delivery

The X100D offers a wide range of power options enabling greater throughput; It supports RF configuration up to a 25W BUC in Ku-Band and a 20W Transceiver in Ka-Band, designed and built by Intellian.

Compact dual-band, dual-pol solution
