C-Com's Ka-band antenna garners Hughes nod

2018-03-14 08:30 ET - News Release

Mr. Leslie Klein reports


C-Com Satellite Systems Inc.'s iNetVu vehicle mount Ka-band antenna system, model Ka-98H/JUP, has received type approval from Hughes Network Systems for operation on its HughesNet Gen5 platform powered by Hughes Jupiter system technology.

Hughes is the global leader in broadband satellite solutions and services and is a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corp.

"We are excited that our iNetVu 98-centimetre driveaway platform, integrated with the latest transceivers and modems, has successfully passed the Hughes testing and approval process," said Bilal Awada, chief technology officer of C-Com Satellite Systems. "Operating over the Gen5 service significantly expands C-Com's addressable market for transportable antenna systems, and will bring very high data throughputs to mobile users."

The new antenna operates in Ka-band but is field upgradable to Ku-band, making it ideal for broadcasters, oil and gas exploration companies, telemedicine, first responders, as well as governments and military.

"The 98H/JUP series antennas are supplied with C-Com's proprietary iNet controllers which have been field tested for over a decade and are in use with more than 8,000 units in the field," said Leslie Klein, president and chief executive officer of C-Com Satellite Systems. "This cost-effective driveaway system offers an attractive solution to customers interested in taking advantage of the availability of higher speed and lower cost Ka-band service offerings," Mr. Klein continued.

"We are pleased to authorize the operation of the Ka-98H/JUP antenna system from C-Com Satellite Systems onto our HughesNet Gen5 service," said Royce Hernandez, senior director at Hughes. "We have a long-standing partnership with C-Com and many of our customers around the world have successfully deployed their antenna systems to meet critical communications requirements."

The iNetVu 98H/JUP antenna systems are available for immediate delivery.
