KVH SURPASSES 9,000 VSAT SYSTEMS

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 

KVH Industries has announced that it recently shipped its 9,000th mini-VSAT Broadband system. KVH’s TracPhone V-series antenna systems are designed to provide satellite broadband connectivity to vessels globally, using advanced satellite technology, including the latest high throughput satellites (HTS).

“Ever since we launched our mini-VSAT Broadband network more than 10 years ago, our antenna systems have been in demand by the maritime industry,” said Martin Kits van Heyningen, CEO, KVH. “Our solution is known for fast data speeds, affordable airtime, and an advanced, secure, and reliable network, which continues to be a winning combination as the maritime industry relies more and more on connectivity.”

KVH’s TracPhone V-series systems have received eight product excellence awards from the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) in the past nine years. Also, in Prospects for Maritime Satellite Communications, 6th Edition (2018), industry analysts at Euroconsult reported that KVH’s share of the maritime industry’s fielded VSAT terminals was nearly double that of its next closest competitor at the end of 2017.

KVH’s TracPhone antenna systems include the TracPhone V3-HTS, a 37 cm diameter Ku-band ultra-compact maritime VSAT antenna, and the TracPhone V7-HTS, a 60 cm diameter Ku-band antenna. These HTS antenna systems are designed for KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network, using Intelsat Flex Maritime service, providing multi-layered global coverage through Intelsat EpicNG HTS and select wide beams. KVH also manufactures the TracPhone V11-IP, a 1.1 meter diameter, dual-mode C/Ku-band antenna for global VSAT connectivity.

Additionally, KVH has launched AgilePlans, a subscription-based Connectivity as a Service (CaaS) model for the commercial maritime sector, offering, for one monthly fee, connectivity via the mini-VSAT Broadband satellite network; a TracPhone V-series antenna; news and training content delivered via satellite; and delivery of chart and weather content.
