World-leading solutions manufacturer KVH Industries has now expanded the capacity of the company’s mini-VSAT Broadband network in the Caribbean region to cater to the higher demand of the thriving customer base.
The expanded capacity is said to be part of the current global network upgrade which involves the deployment of Variable Coding, Spreading, and Modulation (VCSM) technology supplied by ViaSat. KVH Industries utilizes spread spectrum technology specifically built to enable the use of antennas that are 85 percent smaller compared to competing products, all while still providing high-speed and quality service.
KVH plans on developing the company by using its business model and by leveraging the readily available commercial FSS satellite capacity which covers the globe’s oceans provided by leading industries, instead of investing in its own satellites. The mini-VSAT Broadband network currently rents 17 transponders to cover the world using a hybrid network, which includes C-band and Ku-band coverage, using KVH’s unique one meter, dual-mode TracPhone V11 antenna.
In a statement, KVH Mobile Broadband Group Executive Vice President Brent Bruun said, “Our customers enjoy the highest quality satellite service available, with downloads as fast as 4 Mbps and uploads as fast as 1 Mbps, as well as crystal clear Voice over IP (VoIP) telephone lines with optimized service and prioritization of applications. The addition of this new capacity in the Caribbean in time for the busy winter season is a perfect example of how we actively monitor and manage our mini-VSAT Broadband network to ensure we are delivering the speeds and quality of service our customers expect.”
