Intellian launches dual FX antenna system

The new GX Mediator unit The new GX Mediator unit

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Intellian has launched a new dual antenna system linked by a new device called a GX Mediator, which will manage automatic switching between two GX antennas on a single service package in case of blockage of one of the antennas, to maintain a constant connection.

Both antennas receive the satellite signal, with one antenna designated as the primary and the other taking the role of secondary. If the connection of the primary antenna idegrades the GX Mediator will automatically switch to the secondary antenna, without user intervention and with no loss of connectivity.

The GX Mediator, which has been approved by Inmarsat, can be accessed and configured online via Aptus Web, Intellian’s Graphical User Interface (GUI), where the user can view the network’s current status and manage both antennas.

“We congratulate Intellian on its new GX Mediator,” said Ronald Spithout, president of Inmarsat Maritime.

“We always welcome innovation from our long-term hardware partners that aim to simplify the installation and management of Fleet Xpress services, especially in the more challenging operational environments such as the offshore sector, where reliability and higher quality of service are critical.”{/mprestriction}
