Ka2Go – The New Generation of Ka-band Terminals

Friedrichshafen, Germany March 20, 2017 – ND SATCOM has launched the latest plug and play Ka-baND SATCOM terminal with Eutelsat approval.

This new version of the field-tested and -proven Ka2Go – Terminal is ready for fast and easy transmissions in Ka-band. The major highlight is the new RF module eTRIA, where motors are no longer required for polarization changes, thus providing higher reliability. Other improvements are the thermal design and integrated Encoder/GSM options, plus the new user-friendly operations application designed for tablet or smartphone use. Current Ka2Go customers can use the migration kit to upgrade and fully benefit from these sought-after features.
The new generation of Ka2Go is fully KA-SAT compatible, ready for existing Ka-band service offerings on the market. It provides fast and stable transmissions with up to 10 Mbps data rate throughput.
“We improved the successful Ka2Go – Terminal to increase stability and robustness in the field. With the optional migration kit all our existing Ka2Go users can easily upgrade their terminals with minimal downtime,” said ND SATCOM’s Head of Product Management & Marketing, Dr. Michael Weixler. “Of course, the new generation terminal is Eutelsat approved. We guarantee the best-in-class pointing accuracy of +/-0.1 degree with our Ka2Go – Terminal so our customers benefit from reduced bit error rate and better throughput.”
