FMC GlobalSat 4G/LTSAT, available through US-based distributor Nauti-Tech, is a next-generation cellular/VSAT bundle that features the new Kymeta MTenna flat panel antenna, according to a press release from the company. With global satellite access using Ku band, the service offers unthrottled LTE/VSAT connectivity at 150Mbps on 4G/LTE and 5Mbps bandwidth on HTS satellite.
Unlike traditional satellite antennas with large domes, the Kymeta MTenna is a flat panel that’s integrated into a superstructure. The lack of moving parts reduces the effort and complexity of maintaining satellite links that enable Internet connection via geostationary or MEO/LEO satellites.
The 4G/LTSAT system is controlled through a personalized web management interface. The user can view plan details and data usage, and SMS messages can be sent to alert when preselected caps are nearing.
Nauti-Tech offers a range of monthly plans, from 10GB-400GB. The 4G/LTSAT service includes all software, hardware and network access in a single usage-based subscription model. It provides seamless wireless roaming in port without the need to manually change SIM cards or register with a different carrier. If the vessel is used seasonally, the service can be paused.
