KVH to sell VSAT service in South America

Posted 6/6/12

MIDDLETOWN – KVH Industries Inc. – the world’s leading maritime VSAT provider – will offer its mini-VSAT broadband service and TracPhone satellite communications terminals to maritime customers throughout South America through a partnership with Tesacom.

The new KVH/Tesacom partnership will be managed by Andesay S.A., a leading communications provider in the Andean region.

Tesacom will offer KVH’s service solutions from its offices in Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Panama and Peru.

The mini-VSAT broadband service will be available to offshore commercial fishermen, oil and gas operators, and inland waterway vessels working on the Parana River.

A VSAT – very-small-aperture terminals – is a two-way satellite ground station or stabilized maritime antenna with a dish antenna that is smaller than 3 meters.

“KVH’s mini-VSAT broadband service will allow us to offer an attractive and affordable broadband service to meet the growing connectivity needs of our diverse maritime customer base,” Jose Antonio Sanchez Elia, CEO of Tesacom said in a statement.

“With the [VSAT] service, we will be able to provide a proven solution with small antennas, fast data rates, and global coverage that will work well for both large and small vessels, completing our broad offering of solutions,” said Sanchez Elia

In addition to the VSAT service, Tesacom will offer KVH’s TracPhone V-series onboard terminals to its customers.

“KVH is very well positioned to support the key maritime industries in South America, and we’re happy to collaborate with a leading service provider like Tesacom to bring mini-VSAT Broadband to these mariners,” Brent C. Bruun, KVH’s senior vice president of global sales and business development, said in prepared remarks.
