[Via Satellite 11-13-2014] British satellite operator Avanti has approved C-Com Satellite Systems’ iNetVu Ka-band 98-cm Hughes based terminal. The mobile vehicle mounted system is C-Com’s second to gain Avanti approval to operate on the Hylas 1 and Hylas 2 satellites.
C-Com has already begun to deliver the iNetVu Ka-98H antenna systems to Avanti resellers. The approval enables C-Com resellers to operate on an alternate Ka-band service in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“We are pleased to see our 98-cm Hughes based auto-deploying terminal added to the approval list by Avanti,” said Bilal Awada, CTO of C-Com Satellite Systems. “The current system comes with two axis motorization and will operate within the same Ka beam. A third axis motorization option is under development to allow users to roam to adjacent beams and will be available soon.”
