Kymeta and Isotropic Networks Collaborate on Next Generation Flat-Panel Antenna ServicesRFecho
Satellite communications experts, Isotropic Networks and Kymeta, have conducted over-the-air (OTA) testing on a wide range of Kymeta next-generation antenna, including the u7 antenna. Testing took place in the Seattle area on Isotropic’s E115 network. Previous testing took place on the AM2 and G28 satellites on the east coast. For the test, the Kymeta u7 antenna was paired with an iDirect X7 satellite router and iQ 200LTE modem, which are optimized for mobility. These successful tests demonstrate the ability of the antenna to operate across multiple satellite networks and beams, and they mark the first time Isotropic’s commercial service offering has been delivered immediately following conception.
The Kymeta u7 Ku-band satellite terminal addresses the need for lightweight, low-profile, and high-throughput communication systems on-the-move. It makes connecting to nearly any vehicle, vessel, or fixed platform easier and more reliable than ever before.
As part of the antenna innovator’s development and testing of its next generation antenna, Kymeta will be using bandwidth provided by Isotropic at the Lake Geneva Earth Station and Isotropic’s world class network operations center.
According to Walter Berger, President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, Kymeta, the exercise has proven the seamless connectivity of Kymeta’s revolutionary flat panel antenna technology, and the company now looks forward to continued work with Isotropic to shape the course of satellite communications in the future.
The Kymeta u7 terminal, with seamless connectivity, is now available for Isotropic’s network.
