KVH extends HTS maritime network to Pacific Ocean

KVH Industries has extended its mini-VSAT Broadbandsm HTS network to cover the Pacific Ocean via the Horizons 3e satellite, which is jointly owned by Intelsat and SKY Perfect JSAT.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The high-performance Horizons 3e satellite adds to the global coverage and capacity of KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network.

Brent Bruun, chief operating officer, KVH, commented: “With the expansion of coverage to the Pacific Ocean region, our advanced HTS network footprint is complete, providing the commercial and leisure mariners who rely on our solution with great coverage, fast data speeds, and enhanced performance for Internet access, VoIP, and all our connectivity services at sea. We are committed to continuing our high level of service in providing the maritime industry with a complete end-to-end solution for global connectivity.”

KVH launched its mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network in late 2017. The network uses the Intelsat Flex Maritime service to deliver multi-layered Ku-band coverage, enabling vessels to see multiple HTS and wide beam satellites for maximum availability of broadband service. KVH’s HTS network builds on the success of the original maritime satellite network that KVH introduced in 2007.

KVH also recently announced that it had shipped its 9000th antenna system for the mini-VSAT Broadband network.{/mprestriction}
