Maritime VSAT is a 3-Axis Satellite Communication Antenna System designed for larger ocean going vessels. VSAT (very small aperture terminal) earned a reputation for being that of an overly complicated and inconvenient technology to take on board.
Most in the maritime industry made the not so wise decisions and stayed with outdated overworked technology prone to breaking down with costly repairs. Embracing this newer more productive and cost effective technology has never been made easier with VSAT. Let MEI take care of your low bandwidth issues with Intellian Marine Satellite Antennas.
VSAT changed the maritime industry perception by making installation a shorter process combined with remote management, control and support. Intellian / Maritime VSAT combined to pioneer 1 of the world’s first truly worldwide LNBs or in nerd speak blazed the path in Ku- to Ka band upgrade.
