Jun 20, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
KVH Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of solutions that provide internet, television, and voice services via satellite to mobile users at sea, on land and in the air, has entered into an agreement that will enable the MVS Group, a distributor of mobile satellite services, to offer KVH's mini-VSAT Broadband service and TracPhone V-series satellite communications systems to its global customer base.
The agreement will enable MVS Group to bundle KVH's mini-VSAT Broadband service within its billing and airtime management system and full suite of value-added services to provide one-stop shopping for its global customer base, the company said.
"The MVS Group is a market leader that has won a solid following of loyal customers throughout the world by providing outstanding customer support and offering satellite services enhanced with its comprehensive, value-added services," said Brent Bruun, KVH's senior vice president of global sales and business development. "We're delighted to enter into this cooperation to offer its customers next-generation VSAT services delivered by our mini-VSAT Broadband network and our award-winning TracPhone V-series product line."
KVH manufactures three onboard antennas for the mini-VSAT Broadband network, the 24" diameter TracPhone V7, the compact 14.5" diameter TracPhone V3, which is a maritime VSAT antenna, and soon, the new dual-mode TracPhone V11, which will reportedly provide coverage of 95 percent of the earth thanks to its ability to receive both C and Ku-band satellite signals from KVH's global network. The mini-VSAT Broadband service equips vessels with the high data rates available with downloads as fast as 4 Mbps and uploads as fast as 1 Mbps, as well as Voice over IP (VoIP) telephone lines with optimized service and prioritization of applications, the company added.
