Sky Perfect JSAT and KVH to Deliver Maritime Broadband Services
KVH Industries announced that it has concluded arrangements with Sky Perfect JSAT to work together to deliver next-generation maritime broadband services. KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband service will incorporate capacity from Sky Perfect JSAT’s satellites covering the Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean regions, inclusive of unique southern Indian Ocean coverage.
According to the two companies, this maritime broadband service is designed to achieve maximum data speeds of 10 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload, using the new KVH TracPhone V7-HTS, a 60 cm Ku-band maritime satellite antenna system that KVH designed for the network.
In addition, Sky Perfect JSAT will market and sell the next-generation service in Japan under the name OceanBB. According to Sky Perfect JSAT, entering into these agreements with KVH enables it to accelerate its development and provision of next-generation services that will meet the ever-growing demand for maritime broadband.
