KVH to offer FleetBroadband

  • Friday, 26 October 2007 | News

Satellite communications company KVH has announced that it is to offer Inmarsat's new FleetBroadband service, in both FB 250 and FB 500 forms, using its own antenna systems.

The company will offer FleetBroadband, to be launched on November 19, alongside the mini-VSAT system that KVH launched earlier this year.

"Our new KVH TracPhone FB250 and FB500 antenna systems offer not only powerful communications tools, but also the convenience of a simple installation," said Ian Palmer, KVH's executive vice president of satellite sales.

"Each antenna includes a choice of two dome sizes to match our award-winning TracVision M-series satellite TV systems, plus a common below-decks unit and a versatile IP telephone handset for easy system setup and use."

There are two different sized units for both the FB 250 and FB 500, with the different versions aimed at matching with the antennas KVH already offers for its ocean based TV systems.

The FB 250 has a suggested retail price of $12,995 or $13,495, depending on the size, while the FB 500 is available for $19,995 or $22,495. The respective antenna diameters are 27cm and 48 cm for the two FB250s, and 66cm and 89cm for the FB 500s.
