Triband maritime antenna from Cobham

Cobham SATCOM has launched its Sea Tel 9711 Triband maritime antenna system, a 2.4m maritime stabilised antenna capable of connecting to C-, Ku-, or Ka-band networks.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The triband antenna system leverages radio frequency (RF) technology provided by Viasat to enable compatibility across networks, with automated electronic switching.

“Our Sea Tel line of large VSAT systems has been the industry’s first choice among global cruise and energy users for decades,” said Christian Kock, vice president, maritime business unit, Cobham SATCOM.

“The 9711 C/Ku antenna enabled a shift from speeds measured in the tens of Mbps to closer to 1 Gbps. The newer triband variant represents a leap forward, not only in terms of bandwidth potential, but also in empowering both our partners and our users to craft unconventional service packages leveraging multiple frequencies, multiple networks, multiple orbits and more. This system is a core building block for what will be the next generation of connectivity at sea.”

For Ka-band operation, the Sea Tel 9711 Triband will be delivered standard fit with a Viasat RF solution. This capability will enable the antenna system to operate on Viasat’s high-capacity satellite networks as well as on any current or future Ka-band satellite constellation, including those operating in low, medium and high elliptical orbits.

To facilitate switching between services in all bands, the new rack-mounted Triband Modem Arbitrator enables integration of three separate modems to support different frequencies across different satellite networks in real-time. The Modem Arbitrator is expandable to support additional modems as well as redundant data centre configurations.{/mprestriction}
