Thrane & Thrane, a leading Inmarsat terminal manufacturer, signed a global distribution agreement with KVH Industries for KVH's mini-VSAT broadband service and compatible marine hardware.

The agreement builds on the longstanding collaboration between the two companies and will lead to a faster roll-out to global coverage based on a Sailor branded version of the KVH TracPhone V7 and mini-VSAT broadband service.

"We are thrilled to expand our decade-long relationship with Thrane & Thrane and bring them aboard as an OEM partner," KVH CEO Martin Kits van Heyningen said in a statement. "Our aim when we launched the mini-VSAT broadband service was to create a new global solution for affordable, reliable mobile broadband connections via Ku-band satellites.”

Thrane & Thrane is a manufacturer of equipment and systems for global mobile communications based on sophisticated satellite and radio technology.

Middletown, R.I.-based KVH Industries, and its wholly-owned subsidiary, KVH Europe A/S, are providers of in-motion satellite TV and communications systems.
