KVH Introduces New TracPhone V7-IP For Mini-VSAT Broadband Service

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Aug. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In its latest initiative to advance the quality, speed, and affordability of broadband data connectivity at sea, KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq:KVHI) introduces a revolutionary new onboard terminal for its industry-leading mini-VSAT Broadband sm service, the TracPhone ® V7-IP. Representing a new generation of enterprise-grade onboard satellite communications equipment, the TracPhone V7-IP features a robust, 3-axis, gyro-stabilized antenna and a completely integrated belowdecks unit that includes an ArcLight ® spread spectrum modem and KVH's breakthrough new IP-enabled antenna control unit – the CommBox-ACU – which includes a built-in CommBox Ship/Shore Network Manager, Voice over IP (VoIP) adapter, Ethernet switch, and WiFi adapter. The new system will be displayed next week at the Shipbuilding, Machinery, and Marine Technology (SMM) international trade fair in Hamburg, Germany, September 4-7.

For the mariner, KVH's new TracPhone V7-IP costs less, is significantly easier to install, and will provide greater reliability than competing solutions that combine discrete components from a number of different manufacturers. The TracPhone V7-IP's completely integrated design vastly reduces the complexity inherent in competing maritime VSAT systems, which typically require a local technician to configure a full rack of hardware from a half-dozen different third-party manufacturers of modems, antennas, controllers, switches, adapters, and servers. The new system also makes the advanced features of KVH's best-of-breed network management solution, the CommBox Ship/Shore Network Manager, available to every TracPhone V7-IP customer, without investing in additional hardware.

"The TracPhone V7-IP represents a significant leap forward in delivering fast, affordable, reliable broadband connectivity to maritime customers," explains Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH's chief executive officer. "A major upgrade to our pioneering TracPhone V7 system, the TracPhone V7-IP offers a complete end-to-end solution for managing both IT functions and communications on board the vessel. It delivers data at up to 2 Mbps, and has two integrated voice lines that can be expanded to support up to nine simultaneous calls. It's the same size and as easy to install as a FleetBroadband FB500 system, but it delivers data five times faster and at one tenth the cost of Inmarsat FleetBroadband."
