Intellian has announced that it has received approval for its v240MT 2, v240M 2, v240M and v150NX antennas from the Brazilian National Telecommunications Agency, ANATEL. These powerful, high-throughput antennas are widely used in the energy industry, so this approval opens the door for Brazil’s extensive oil and gas market to adopt Intellian’s antenna technology.
According to Brazilian Regulations (Federal Law 9472/97), telecommunications products to be sold and used in Brazil must have a Certificate of Conformity issued by a Designated Certification Body (OCD), indicating that they comply with Brazilian regulatory requirements. This certificate must also be approved by ANATEL.
Intellian’s innovative v240MT 2 antenna combines C, Ku and Ka band communications on a single reflector to enable auto-switching between all three bands, together with both GEO and MEO satellite tracking. The v240M 2 and v240M do the same for the C and Ku bands, while the v150NX antenna works across multiple orbits and can be easily converted between operation on the Ku and Ka bands. This flexibility to change band and orbit places the choice of operator firmly with the customer and ensures that the antennas are ready for the development of future, non-geostationary (NGSO) networks.
Approval for the antennas extends to include a range of BUC options, to allow customers to tailor their antennas’ output power and hence their uplink bandwidth.
Sam McKee, General Manager Americas, Intellian Technologies, says, “We are delighted to receive this approval. The Brazilian oil and gas markets are ideally placed to benefit from the award-winning technology and best-in-class RF performance of our v240MT 2, v240M 2, v240M and v150NX antennas. These products are ready for the next generation of satellite networks, so by choosing Intellian, customers are safeguarding their connectivity for the future and guaranteeing a seamless and cost-effective pathway to new services as they come online.”
