Harris CapRock introduces new tri-band antenna

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Harris CapRock Communications has introduced an advanced managed communications system with the world’s first tri-band antenna. The new system can connect to C-, Ku-, and Ka- bands in one piece of equipment, that works with an Intelligent Communications Director (ICD) to automatically selects the best satellite, wireless, or terrestrial network.

Harris CapRock said the multi-band antenna has no additional moving parts, meaning that any satellite orbiting the Earth can be accessed without technician intervention.

The ICD is a geographically aware smartbox that recognizes where the multi-band antenna is around the world and carries a database of the network footprints available. The device is aware of the operator’s traffic and can route traffic intelligently over the most appropriate network path based on speed, latency, location, and cost, the company said.
