Ka2Go - Terminal receives Eutelsat Type Approval with the most accurate pointing
Friedrichshafen, July 24, 2014 - ND SatCom today announced that it has received type approval for its Ka2Go - Terminal for Eutelsat Broadband Services.
Eutelsat is one of the world's leading satellite operators delivering service into 150 countries via 37 satellites.
Ka2Go - Terminal has been awarded to be the system with most accurate pointing among of all type approved Ka-band auto-deploy systems so far. According to Eutelsat handbook "Type approvals and characterizations" Ka2Go - Terminal has an error pointing of ≤ 0,2° (2-1).
“Compared to other antennas with similar size, the RF performance of Ka2Go – Terminal is up to 3 dB better!”, says Martin Blaser, Head of Operations in ND SATCOM, “This means you can achieve much higher service availability and in adverse weather conditions even higher data rates. This is especially important for customers who are looking for cross-media solutions or who want to be prepared for larger data rates in the future.”
The Ka2Go - Terminal is an optimal solution to meet the growing need for new means of content gathering and transmission using Ka-band technology. It is a lightweight plug & play terminal which is fully KA-SAT compatible, therefore making it perfect in combination with existing Ka-band service offerings on the market. Terminal integrates a KA-SAT modem, IP router and antenna controller in one. It includes a patented motorized positioner and is made up of a high precision offset Ka-band reflector, GPS receiver, a compass enabling auto-pointing and auto-network acquisition. Ka2Go – Terminal fits on vehicles of almost all sizes and is an ideal solution for permanent or ad-hoc transmissions in Ka-band with up to 10 Mbps data rate throughput.
ND SATCOM presents Ka2Go – Terminal at the IBC Exhibition (12 - 16 September 2014) in Hall 5, Booth 5.C31.
