KVH Expands Maritime Network via Intelsat’s Horizons 3e
KVH Industries expanded its mini-VSAT Broadband High Throughput Satellite (HTS) network to the Pacific Ocean via the Horizons 3e satellite, which is jointly owned by Intelsat and SKY Perfect JSAT.
KVH launched its mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network in late 2017. The Horizons 3e satellite adds to the global coverage and capacity of KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network, which provides connectivity to vessels worldwide. Global containerships, commercial fishing fleets, and superyachts cruising to remote destinations are among the many types of vessels that transit key areas in the Pacific Ocean, Asia Pacific, and the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
“With the expansion of coverage to the Pacific Ocean region, our advanced HTS network footprint is complete, providing the commercial and leisure mariners who rely on our solution with great coverage, fast data speeds, and enhanced performance for Internet access, Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP), and all our connectivity services at sea,” says KVH Chief Operating Officer (CEO) Brent Bruun. “We are committed to continuing our high level of service in providing the maritime industry with a complete end-to-end solution for global connectivity.”
