KVH launches super-fast 1 metre Ku/C-band VSAT antenna

KVH Industries has introduced the TracPhone V11-HTS, a super-fast 1 metre Ku/C-band maritime VSAT antenna, designed to deliver data speeds up to 20 Mbps down/3 Mbps to commercial maritime vessels and superyachts.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}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 in extreme weather. 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.

TracPhone V11-HTS also benefits from a 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. Data speeds up to 20/3 Mbps down/up enable videoconferencing, video chat, telemedicine, web browsing, and allocated crew usage. Data as fast as 8/2 Mbps down/up provide enough speed for IoT data transfer, email, software updates, automated file transmission, weather updates, and unallocated crew 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. This allows users to manage their data.

Martin Kits van Heyningen, chief executive officer, KVH, commented: “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. From our advanced mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network to our 24/7 tech support, our superior connectivity solution makes broadband at sea seamless.”

The TracPhone V11-HTS is designed for KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network, which utilises 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. TracPhone V11-HTS utilises Intelsat’s global C-band capacity for expanded maritime coverage.

For commercial fleets, the TracPhone V11-HTS is available as part of KVH’s AgilePlans, a subscription-based Connectivity as a Service program paid per month.{/mprestriction}
