KVH expands mini-VSAT capacity in Asia Pacific region

KVH Industries has announced that it has doubled its capacity available from the JCSAT-1B satellite serving maritime customers of its mini-VSAT Broadband service in the Asia-Pacific region, one of the world’s busiest areas for commercial shipping.

The company says that this additional capacity will support mariners in a region which is one of the fastest-growing areas in the world for maritime broadband demand.

“The additional capacity for JCSAT-1B dramatically enhances the ability of our mini-VSAT Broadband network to support existing and future subscribers,” said Brent Bruun, executive vice president of KVH’s Mobile Broadband Group.

“Designed to offer service and performance superior to traditional maritime VSAT services, the network is built upon a robust, flexible architecture, permitting us to quickly and easily expand the service.”

Most importantly, commercial, leisure, and government mariners who rely on mini-VSAT Broadband for their internet and voice connections will enjoy the benefit from these enhancements almost immediately.”

KVH says that existing TracPhone V-series and V-IP series terminals will automatically be able to access the additional capacity when they receive an over-the-air software update.

The new satellite capacity in Asia is the latest in a series of recent network enhancements. In July, KVH announced deployment of Variable Coding, Spreading, and Modulation (VCSM) technology provided by ViaSat, its partner in the mini-VSAT Broadband network.
