KVH Industries has taken operational responsibility of the mini-VSAT Broadband service network supporting North America and the Caribbean.

These regions were previously managed under a revenue-sharing agreement with SES Americom. KVH now has a leasing agreement with SES Americom for bandwidth on its AMC-21 and AMC-6 satellites. KVH also purchased from SES Americom the Miami satellite network hub that supports the Caribbean region.

"By assuming ownership and control of the North American and Caribbean regions, we continue the evolution of KVH Industries into a global broadband service provider," said Brent C. Bruun, KVH vice president of sales and business development, in a statement.
