KVH Introduces faster connectivity

(Posted on 02/04/19)

KVH Industries, Inc., has introduced the TracPhone V11-HTS, the world’s fastest 1 meter Ku/C-band maritime VSAT antenna, designed to deliver data speeds as fast as 20 Mbps down/3 Mbps up to commercial maritime vessels and superyachts around the world. The fast data speeds support the critical needs of commercial ships today for operations, Internet of Things (IoT) applications, and crew connectivity.

“With the TracPhone V11-HTS, we continue to bring innovative solutions to the maritime market, enabling commercial vessel operators to take advantage of the many benefits of VSAT, such as IoT applications and business efficiency, while yacht captains can offer guests onboard KVH’s fastest connectivity at sea,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, chief executive officer of KVH. “From our advanced mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network to our 24/7 tech support, our superior connectivity solution makes broadband at sea seamless.”
 
Designed, engineered, and manufactured by mobile tech innovator KVH, the TracPhone V11-HTS features a dual Ku/C-band design with automatic switching to deliver expanded global coverage, including Northern and Southern latitudes, and reliable connectivity, even in extreme weather. In addition, the antenna system features the Integrated CommBox Modem (ICM), a streamlined belowdecks unit including high-throughput modem, Voice over IP (VoIP) adapter, CommBox network management software, and built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet. The ICM also receives onboard news, entertainment, and operations content sent via KVH’s IP-MobileCast content delivery service.
 
Another feature of the TracPhone V11-HTS is its two-channel configuration, enabling users to experience both a high-speed data channel and an unlimited-use data channel from a single maritime VSAT antenna. With data speeds as fast as 20/3 Mbps down/up, the high-speed channel is suitable for videoconferencing, video chat, telemedicine, web browsing, and allocated crew usage. With data speeds as fast as 8/2 Mbps down/up, the unlimited-use channel is suitable for IoT data transfer, email, software updates, automated file transmission, weather updates, and unallocated crew usage. To help vessels manage their data usage, KVH also provides the mini-VSAT Manager suite of tools to set usage alerts, provide data consumption reports, and assign data allowances all via a secure online portal.
 
The TracPhone V11-HTS is designed for KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network, which utilizes Intelsat’s 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; the network also uses additional capacity from SKY Perfect JSAT. In addition, the TracPhone V11-HTS utilizes Intelsat’s global C-band capacity for expanded maritime coverage.
 
For commercial fleets, the TracPhone V11-HTS is also available as part of KVH’s innovative AgilePlans, a subscription-based Connectivity as a Service program that includes, for one monthly fee: global connectivity; VSAT antenna with free installation in select ports; training and daily news content delivered via satellite; and delivery of chart and weather content.
 
The TracPhone V11-HTS adds to KVH’s HTS family of maritime VSAT antennas, which include the 60 cm diameter, Ku-band TracPhone V7-HTS and the 37 cm diameter, Ku-band TracPhone V3-HTS. The variety in KVH’s HTS antenna family means there is a system suitable for nearly any size boat, yacht, or ship—from a 30-foot sportfishing boat used along the coast, to a 150-foot superyacht cruising in the Mediterranean, to a 1,000-foot freighter traveling the world’s shipping routes.
