The Most Advanced Maritime Network Available
TracPhone V7-HTS’s global connections and fast speeds are made possible by new, advanced Ku-band satellites. KVH’s managed HTS network offers valuable advantages for personal, operational, and crew connections, including:
Communications are critical for your yacht’s operations as well as ensuring that everyone on board enjoys the benefits of broadband connections to keep connected when at sea. That’s why TracPhone V7-HTS is designed specifically with the rigors of the marine environment in mind, and includes elements like:
The TracPhone V7-HTS is a quantum leap in maritime satellite communications, offering high-throughput global connectivity via next-generation satellites as an overlay on the industry-leading mini-VSAT Broadband Network. Developed by KVH specifically for the mini-VSAT Broadband Network, TracPhone V7-HTS uses a 60 cm-diameter antenna dish, in a 66 cm-diameter radome. The 3-axis gyro-stabilized maritime VSAT antenna with a 4th axis of automatic skew adjustment boasts an extended elevation range of -24° to 119° ensuring that the antenna tracks satellites directly above the vessel to low on the horizon.
TracPhone V7-HTS’s streamlined belowdecks unit includes an IP-enabled antenna control unit, built-in CommBox Network Manager, high-throughput Modem, VoIP, Ethernet switch, and Wi-Fi capabilities, storage and access for entertainment, operations, and Videotel training content delivered by IP-MobileCast, and support for over-the-air software updates for the ICM and antenna unit — all in one 2U box for faster, trouble-free installations and user experience.
KVH’s IP-MobileCast service delivers large files, including electronic charts, weather forecasts, training videos, news, sports, TV shows and series, and premium movies. IP-MobileCast uses proprietary software that provides advanced error correction, compression, and validation of data integrity throughout the transmission from shore to ship for unparalleled reliability and efficiency. Shoreside servers encode files for transmission and queue them for multicast delivery “over the top” of the mini-VSAT Broadband network. The IP-MobileCast service’s patented Forward Error Correction (FEC) technology ensures that the CommBox servers on ships receive each file in perfect condition the first time it is transmitted. The unique FEC algorithms deliver the highest level of reliability by accommodating intermittent non-continuous transmission, which might happen when large transmissions are interrupted by prioritized network traffic or in very poor weather conditions.
