Intellian v65 Satellite Communications INT-V65

The Intellian v65 Satellite Communications INT-V65 is the world’s first and only 60cm class antenna capable of top RF performance in either Ku-band or Ka-band. Intellian v65 X-pol only w/o BUC.

  • Convertible from Ku-band to Ka-band operation in as little as 10 minutes
  • Intellian v65 Simple dual cable installation with external cable connectors at the base of the radome
  • Dual VSAT Mediator integrates two VSAT antennas to combat onboard blockage zones
  • Open platform system architecture works with all leading Ku-band service providers
  • Remote Management using Aptus Web. Wi-Fi enabled ACU for local control using Aptus Mobile or PC
  • Supports 4W, 8W, & 16W BUC out of the box
  • Dynamic motor brakes permit shipping without stow brackets eliminating the need to remove the radome during installation
  • 3-Year Global Warranty backed by over 480 Intellian Service and Support centers around the world


Best RF Performance

The v65’s high-efficiency reflector and feed design deliver dramatically improved gain performance for increased fidelity of service and improved overall link margin. Service providers can now leverage the superior performance to access new market segments by building new, attractive service plans offering truly global coverage, higher throughput, and larger sized data plans. Live network testing shows the v65 offers an average of 1.2 dB/k improvement in G/T over any other system in its class, and can achieve download speeds up to 100Mbps over high throughput satellites, such as Intelsat’s EPIC constellation.

Built for Scale

The rate of adoption is increasing for maritime satellite communications. While this is a positive development for the industry, the challenge is keeping up with demand. Intellian understands that clients are not earning revenue until the system is installed and activated. The Intellian v65 aims to solve this problem through a few key features.

The product is shipped without any stow brackets on the pedestal, and the RF connectors are now accessible from a small external panel, meaning there is no longer any need to remove to radome during pre-installation testing or during installation itself. Saving time through both of these processes enhances the efficiency of your business and gets you to activation far more quickly. The v65 is also capable of supporting automated commissioning once it has been properly integrated with a given network.

Frequency Flexible

In today’s market, there are a number of barriers to adoption. As satellite technology evolves more and more quickly, users are faced with important technology decisions, such as to move in the direction of next-generation Ka-band services, or newly launched Ku-band offerings. Many express concerns over being stuck one way or the other based on hardware limitations. The Intellian v65 Satellite Communications INT-V65 is the world’s first and only 60cm class antenna system which can operate in both Ku- and Ka-bands through a simple conversion process. Using one of Intellian’s signature onboard conversion kits, users can swap out key RF components in as little as 10 minutes to move from one frequency to another, delivering maximum performance in any geography and ensuring a Futureproof communications solution for end users all over the world.
