KVH extends its long-standing relationship with SKY Perfect JSAT

MIDDLETOWN, RI – November 20, 2017 – KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI), today announced that it has concluded arrangements with SKY Perfect JSAT (SJC) to work together in delivering next-generation maritime broadband services.

KVH’s advanced mini-VSAT Broadbandsm service will incorporate capacity from SJC’s satellites covering the Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean regions, inclusive of unique southern Indian Ocean coverage. This new-generation maritime broadband service is designed to achieve maximum data speeds of 10 Mbps download, and 3 Mbps upload, using the new KVH TracPhone® V7-HTS, a 60 cm Ku-band maritime satellite antenna system that KVH designed for the advanced network.

In addition, SJC will be marketing and selling the next-generation service in Japan under the name “OceanBB.” According to SJC, entering into these agreements with KVH enables SJC to accelerate its development and provision of next-generation services that will meet the ever-growing demand for maritime broadband.

KVH TracPhone V7-HTS System Delivers Maritime Broadband at Triple Previous Speeds for a New Era of Digital Life at Sea

V7HTSwICM_reflections

The new 60 cm, Ku-band satellite antenna system enables leisure boaters and commercial mariners to stream HD content and conduct video calls at sea while simultaneously supporting a free, unlimited use data channel

 

MIDDLETOWN, RI – October 31, 2017 – An advanced, 60 cm marine satellite antenna system designed to consistently deliver the fastest data speeds globally to the maritime market will be unveiled tomorrow by KVH Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: KVHI), at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, in Florida. The TracPhone® V7-HTS achieves data download speeds of up to 10 Mbps, three times faster than current 60 cm models on the market, including KVH’s own system, and fast enough to enable the streaming of HD-quality content at sea. In addition, to further meet the demands of increased data usage at sea, KVH is offering the TracPhone V7-HTS with new hybrid airtime plans that deliver a free, lower-speed unlimited use data channel that runs at the same time as the high-speed data channel. The faster data speeds of the TracPhone V7-HTS are accomplished by a combination of KVH’s proprietary antenna system design and industry-leading mini-VSAT Broadbandsm network, which recently began using advanced Intelsat Epic satellites for high throughput satellite (HTS) capabilities, and additional capacity from SKY Perfect JSAT satellites. With the HTS network, KVH added 25 million square miles to its global maritime Ku-band high-speed connectivity footprint. With the combination of fast data streaming and global coverage, the TracPhone V7-HTS is poised to transform the use of broadband at sea. For the leisure market, the system is designed to enable yacht owners and their guests to enjoy HD streaming, popular social apps, and other benefits of connectivity for a new era of digital life at sea. The captain of a 44.8-meter superyacht, who is one of the first to use the system, reports: “We just voyaged from Florida to Panama with the new TracPhone V7-HTS onboard, and enjoyed excellent speeds of 10 Mbps. This is a great service for a superyacht demanding higher data speeds than a traditional VSAT can provide,” says Bryan Antill, captain of the M/Y Surina.

For the commercial maritime market, the TracPhone V7-HTS is designed to enable merchant fleets to take advantage of cloud-based software programs, remote system monitoring, and data analytics in the pursuit of digitalization. With applications such as remote system monitoring requiring frequent data uploads, the TracPhone V7-HTS provides upload speeds of up to 3 Mbps, six times faster than KVH’s current 60 cm system. “We are thrilled to offer the streaming fast TracPhone V7-HTS to boaters and mariners around the world, so they can experience the benefits of connectivity even while at sea. Ship managers can improve their operational efficiency by taking advantage of data-driven tools and decision-making, while yacht captains can offer guests onboard the faster connectivity they desire,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, co-founder and chief executive officer of KVH. “We continue to bring innovative solutions to the marine market, including a network configuration able to provide high-speed data as well as unlimited use data all from the same system. What other services are offering as their airtime plans is a free value-added bonus from KVH.”

“Intelsat has been instrumental in helping us develop the advances to our mini-VSAT Broadband service, continuing the positive working relationship we’ve had for many years,” says Brent Bruun, KVH chief operating officer. “We expect to provide our maritime customers with increased data speeds at the same price points as our current service, while offering unparalleled coverage on a global basis.
