KVH EXPANDS HTS MARITIME NETWORK FOR ENTIRE PACIFIC OCEAN REGION

Friday, March 22, 2019 

KVH Industries has expanded its mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network to the Pacific Ocean via the Horizons 3e satellite, which is jointly owned by Intelsat and SKY Perfect JSAT.

The high-performance Horizons 3e satellite immediately adds to the global coverage and capacity of KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network, which provides connectivity to vessels worldwide.

“With the expansion of coverage to the Pacific Ocean region, our advanced HTS network footprint is complete, providing the commercial and leisure mariners who rely on our solution with great coverage, fast data speeds, and enhanced performance for Internet access, VoIP, and all our connectivity services at sea,” said Brent Bruun, COO KVH. “We are committed to continuing our high level of service in providing the maritime industry with a complete end-to-end solution for global connectivity.”

KVH launched its mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network in late 2017. The network uses the Intelsat Flex Maritime service to deliver multi-layered Ku-band coverage, enabling vessels to see multiple HTS and wide beam satellites for maximum availability of broadband service. KVH’s HTS network builds on the success of the original maritime satellite network that KVH introduced in 2007.

KVH claims to be unique in providing a comprehensive maritime solution that includes global connectivity from the mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network; TracPhone VSAT antennas including the 37 cm, Ku-band V3-HTS, the 60 cm, Ku-band TracPhone V7-HTS, and the 1.1 m C/Ku-band TracPhone V11-IP; AgilePlans Connectivity as a Service (CaaS); IP-MobileCast content delivery service; 24/7 technical support from KVH’s Network Ops Center; and a global field services team for installation and maintenance support.
