Intellian announced that Carnival has installed its v240MT tri-band and multi-orbit 2.4 meter antennas on-board several cruise ships. Intellian’s v240MT 2.4m antennas, combined with the new Intelligent Mediator Solution, are specifically designed to deliver data rates exceeding 1 Gbps.

Intellian’s 2.4m class multi-band, multi-orbit Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) broadband antennas unlock access to virtually any satellite constellation within seconds, according to the company. The new Intellian v240MT solution provides the capability of switching between different satellite frequency bands (C-, Ku-, and Ka-band), as needed without any user intervention. To manage the switching between GEO and MEO, the company is introducing Intelligent Mediator Solution. This system allows for automatic switching between networks, satellites, and most importantly, provides support for dual data cCruCrenters. All these systems are connected on-board using Intellian Fiber Optic connections.
