MIDDLETOWN – KVH Industries Inc. has introduced the TracPhone V3IP terminal for its mini-VSAT Broadband service as a part of its “commitment to bringing reliable, fast, affordable broadband connection to mariners,” according to a company release.
“Introducing the TracPhone V3IP is a significant development in our ongoing mission to deliver fast, affordable, reliable broadband connectivity to maritime customers,” Brent Bruun, executive vice president of KVH’s mobile broadband group, said in a prepared statement.
“The TracPhone V3IP offers a complete end-to-end solution for managing both IT functions and communications on board a variety of maritime vessels. It delivers data at up to 2 Mbps over mini-VSAT Broadband, the world’s leading maritime VSAT service,” added Bruun. “It’s similar in size to competing L-band systems, but delivers data at a far lower cost, especially for vessels that consume a relatively low amount of data each month.”
All of the TracPhone V3IP’s below-decks equipment - an Integrated CommBox Modem, a streamlined unit that includes an IP-enabled antenna control unit, built-in with IP voice capability, Ethernet switch and Wi-Fi connectivity is built in to a single 2U enclosure.
KVH describes the new TracPhone V3IP as costing less and significantly easier to install. The system “provides greater reliability than competing solutions that combine discrete components from a number of different manufacturers,” said KVH.
With a compact antenna dish at just 37 centimeters, the V3IP brings satellite communications and network management capabilities to vessels 30 feet or larger.
