MTN delivers the first dual Ku/Ka-band ultra-high speed satellite solution for yachts

In a yacht industry first, for delivery of ultra-high speed connectivity and content in the Mediterranean, MTN Communications (MTN) is launching a Ka-band-ready satellite solution. Coupled with the MTN Maestro communications management solution, the company will offer customers the Skytech BB75 dual Ku/Ka-band satellite antenna. Complementing today’s MTN Ku-band service optimised through MTN Maestro, this is the first Ka-band satellite solution available for delivery to the yacht market.

MTN powers communications and content for the majority of the world’s superyachts. This new Ku/Ka-band offering also will provide a smart transition to the proprietary high throughput multi-spot beam Ku-band satellite services (MTN HTMS™) coming in the next year. The solution will operate in Ku- and Ka-bands simultaneously for yachts that need the highest speeds with the most reliability and the ultimate value.

Derik Wagner, managing director of MTN Yacht Business Unit said, “As provider to the most superyachts in the market, we are excited to once again deliver the newest, most powerful high-throughput communications solution to the most demanding of customers. We design the best system for each individual yacht by leveraging the latest technologies -- now operable in all frequency bands -- with the smartest applications. Not only is our Maestro platform set up for MTN HTMS -- it is Ka-band-ready. This partnership with Skytech extends our platform with an antenna that can deliver Ku- and Ka-band service simultaneously -- something the market has not yet experienced.”
