KVH Industries, Inc., said it recently shipped its 9,000th mini-VSAT Broadband system. The company said its TracPhone V-series antenna systems are designed to provide satellite broadband connectivity to commercial vessels and yachts around the world by use of advanced satellite technology, including the latest high throughout satellites (HTS).
“Ever since we launched our mini-VSAT Broadband network more than 10 years ago, our antenna systems have been in demand by the maritime industry,” said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH CEO, in a statement.
TracPhone V-series systems have received eight product excellence awards from the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) in the past nine years. Industry analysts at Euroconsult also reported that KVH is the market share leader in maritime VSAT by units, noting that KVH’s share of the maritime industry’s fielded VSAT terminals is nearly double that of its next closest competitor, as of the end of 2017.
