KVH is making it easier to get online faster from your boat.

As of February, two of the company’s three global C-band beams on the mini-VSAT Broadband network will double in capacity, enhancing the C/Ku-band maritime network. The enhanced service follows increasing demand for use of TracPhone V11-IP satellite communications systems, which seamlessly switch between the mini-VSAT Broadband network’s global C- and Ku-band satellite coverage.

“Vessels using the TracPhone V11-IP typically need C-band coverage only a small percentage of the time they are at sea, because of the extensive Ku-band capacity of the mini-VSAT Broadband network, which itself has more than doubled worldwide in the past year,” Marc Edwards, KVH’s network operations director, stated in a press release. “This unique network architecture allows us to provide the power and speed of a modern maritime VSAT service with the global coverage typical of global L-band services like Inmarsat FleetBroadband.”
