Paradigm Communications Systems Ltd. has reported that their rugged, quick deploy HORNET100GX, which is now available for operation on the Inmarsat Global Xpress satellite network as a highly efficient Land Terminal Efficiency Group 2 terminal.
Inmarsat has issued Type Approval of the HORNET100GX for use on all GX Land based services, such as G2X Land, providing cost effective high throughput data services around the world.
The HORNET100GX is based on Paradigm’s rugged and portable PIM-based HORNET VSAT terminal. The field-proven HORNET provides a single SATCOM solution for many different operational requirements, being environmentally rugged, yet lightweight; even the largest 100cm variant can be packed into a single airline-friendly case, as well as saving airtime service charges compared to other terminals.
At the heart of each of Paradigm’s satellite terminals is the PIM (Paradigm Interface Module), providing an easy to use operational interface ensuring rapid setup and simple terminal configuration and management. Paradigm’s PIM is at the heart of modern satellite terminal operation, designed to simplify operation, reduce operating/training costs and provide a central unit for the integration and operation of satellite terminal hardware.
That is the reason Paradigm terminals are ideally suited for Inmarsat’s Global Xpress network. As well as making pointing simple for any user, PIM-based terminals all offer excellent SWaP characteristics and operational agility providing key connectivity for edge devices.
Paradigm terminals are all IATA compliant, and the modular, quick deploy single-case HORNET provides the ideal balance of portability with high bandwidth.
Ulf Sandberg, Managing Director at Paradigm, said, “The availability of the HORNET as a Global Xpress Land Group 2 terminal is a fantastic opportunity to use our rugged, environmentally proven HORNET with high speed data, all over the world at a great price” James Marley, Director, Land Sector for Inmarsat Global Government said: “Paradigm’s HORNETGX100 terminal offers customers a highly portable, single case solution with the airtime service cost benefit of a 1m antenna. We look forward to getting the first terminal units connected on the G2X Land service.”
