KVH TracPhone V7-HTS - 10 Mbps Marine VSAT System
TracPhone V7HTS includes KVH's exclusive dual channel configuration with innovative hybrid airtime plans that deliver a free unlimited use data channel running at the same time as your ultra-fast channel.
Enterprise-grade Ku-band VSAT Antenna
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 antenna unit. 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.
The Most Advanced Maritime Network Available
TracPhone V7HTS delivers global connections and unmatched speed using new, advanced Intelsat and SKY Perfect JSAT Ku-band satellites that add HTS capabilities to the mini-VSAT Broadband network. KVH's high-speed worldwide HTS network offers critical advantages over other maritime networks for your personal, operational, and crew connections including:
Because Connections Matter...
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 All-New Integrated CommBox Modem (ICM)
The ICM is the streamlined all-in-one belowdecks unit that drives the TracPhone V7HTS. It features a browser-based user interface and a convenient iPhone® app for system status, updates, and support. Replacing a full rack of components required for competitors’ systems, the 2U-high ICM contains:
IP-MobileCast Content Delivery Service
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.
Creating Confidence through User-friendly Controls
Enjoy complete transparency into and control over data usage via the TracPhone V7HTS thanks to the secure myKVH™ mini-VSAT Manager,™ a comprehensive set of tools to manage your operational and individual use.
Affordable and Flexible Service
Thanks to KVH's exclusive hybrid airtime plans, you can enjoy the best value, faster speeds at lower cost, and no “bill shock”. KVH's High Speed (HS) rate plans allow you to select the plan that’s right for your expected data consumption. At every price point you'll get the fastest data speeds on the network with unrestricted access to all applications and protocols. At the same time, the TracPhone V7HTS offers a free, unlimited use data channel for lower priority needs with the security of never experiencing overages, and with the option to upgrade to higher speeds.
