Successful testing on Kymeta™ u7 antenna confirms immediate viability of seamless, integrated, multi-service offering across multiple networks and beams
REDMOND, Wash. and LAKE GENEVA, Wis., Jan. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Isotropic, the trusted provider of global internet services offering unrivalled certainty, and Kymeta, the communications company that is completing the connectivity fabric for everything, everywhere, have partnered to conduct over-the-air testing on Kymeta's u7 antenna and next generation antennas.
Testing took place last week in the Seattle area on Isotropic's E115 network. Previous testing took place on the AM2 and G28 satellites on the east coast. The Kymeta u7 antenna was paired with an iDirect X7 satellite router and iQ 200LTE modem, which are optimized for mobility. These successful tests demonstrate the ability of the antenna to operate across multiple satellite networks and beams, and they mark the first time Isotropic's commercial service offering has been delivered immediately following conception.
The Kymeta u7 Ku-band satellite terminal addresses the need for lightweight, low-profile, and high-throughput communication systems on-the-move. The u7 terminal makes connecting to nearly any vehicle, vessel, or fixed platform easier and more reliable than ever before.
"The testing we completed with Kymeta has been a revelation to me," said Hank Zbierski, Chief Catalyst and Co-Founder, Isotropic. "I had been waiting for the promises of holographic beamforming and was skeptical about metamaterial technology. These tests have proven, beyond any doubt, that metamaterial science is not something that's in the future—it's deliverable now."
As part of the antenna innovator's development and testing of its next generation antenna, Kymeta will be using bandwidth provided by Isotropic at the Lake Geneva Earth Station and Isotropic's world class network operations center.
"We are very pleased to have partnered with Isotropic to conduct these tests. Isotropic's network is proven to enable robust service delivery on our u7 antenna," said Walter Berger, President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, Kymeta. "This exercise has proven the seamless connectivity of our revolutionary flat panel antenna technology, and we look forward to our continued work with Isotropic to shape the course of satellite communications in the future."
The Kymeta u7 terminal, with seamless connectivity, is available on Isotropic's network today.
