Mini-VSAT Broadband network is enhanced in North America and the Asia-Pacific region.
April 10, 2015
KVH has added capacity to its mini-VSAT Broadband network in the Pacific Northwest, the eastern coast of Canada and the United States, and the Asia-Pacific region.
The satellite network’s capacity increases were completed to support heightened demand for broadband services from users at sea.
In the Pacific Northwest, KVH has a new beam that covers the entire region. In eastern Canada and the United States, a new beam more than doubles network capacity. In the Asia-Pacific region, capacity of a key beam was increased by 60 percent.
The capacity expansions will support commercial shipping as well as KVH’s IP-MobileCast content delivery service, which delivers news, sports, entertainment and other content to yachts.
“We are continually monitoring and improving the mini-VSAT Broadband network to ensure our maritime customers have the critical connectivity they need at all times on board their vessels,” KVH CEO Martin Kits van Heyningen stated in a press release.
