Kymeta u8 Flat-Panel Satellite Terminal

$ 18,950.00

SKU: FP-GC-GC NSI000013 Category:

A flat-panel broadband hotspot – SOTM “Satcom-on-the-Move”. The Kymeta satellite systems service North America, Europe, and the Middle East.

The Kymeta low-profile, low-maintenance terminal delivers consistent high-speed bandwidth in a form factor that’s been lacking in the satellite industry for years. These future-tech antennas use hundreds of tiny electrically steerable liquid crystals that aggregate together forming the beam width of a standard VSAT satellite dish. Astounding.

Typically requires a mounting option and power cables – please see Accessories (below).

Do you require a low-profile satellite solution delivering extremely high-speed internet while parked or moving from any vehicle, vessel, or fixed platform? Then the Kymeta U8 series flat-panel satellite terminal is for you, delivering up to 5Mbps by 2Mbps speeds for North America, Europe, and the Middle East (view Kymeta coverage map).


Simple Operation

Operation is as easy as providing power to the terminal and turning it on. The satellite system will automatically lock on satellite and create a wireless hotspot (or Ethernet) for very high-speed Internet. No other interaction is needed and there is no special licensing or certification required to operate. And since there are no moving parts, there is nothing to deploy stow or maintain… Simply drive off.
