Stay connected so you can spend more time onboard your boat or yacht! TracPhone V11-IP is a key part of the mini-VSAT Broadband 2.0 solution, which supports operational efficiencies for maritime operations. For a new era of increased broadband connectivity, KVH offers airtime plans with the highest data speeds on the network at lower prices, plus the myKVH portal for monitoring onboard bandwidth usage. To satisfy crew welfare and training needs, KVH offers gigabytes of entertainment and operations content delivered via IP-MobileCast, a unique multicasting delivery that does not impact onboard data speeds or airtime plans.
For greater reliability, simple installation, built-in network management, and unparalleled ease of use.TracPhone V11-IP features a breakthrough belowdecks unit. The Integrated CommBox Modem includes:
IP-enabled antenna control unit
CommBox Network Manager
ArcLight® spread spectrum modem
Voice over IP (VoIP), Ethernet switch, and Wi-Fi capabilities all in one 2U box.
The 3-axis, gyro-stabilized TracPhone V11-IP uses a single, compact, 1.1-meter antenna to seamlessly access both the C- and Ku-band satellites of the No. 1 maritime VSAT network – mini-VSAT Broadband – and delivers premium quality multimegabit connectivity worldwide.
One compact antenna unit 85% smaller by volume and lighter than C-band VSATs – for faster, less costly installation
Data rates as fast as 4 Mbps for downloads / 1 Mbps for uploads
Affordable airtime rates and flexible plans
Improved connectivity to help meet MLC-2006 crew welfare requirements
User-friendly browser-based user interface that even includes an iPhone® app
Built-in CommBox Network Manager provides ship operators the tools to manage the increasing use of broadband onboard for both operations and crew.
Easy installations with the fastest activation in the industry
Remote diagnostics and monitoring, over-the-air software updates, and ease in creating unique networks for crew access to e-mail and Internet
Utilizing advanced multicasting technology, KVH’s IP-MobileCast content delivery service is the most economical and reliable way to bring movies, sports, world news, and news from home to crew members, and also meet vessel operational needs with chart delivers, weather information, and more. TracPhone V11-IP’s ICM belowdecks unit serves as the hub for receiving IP-MobileCast services on subscribing vessels; content can then be accessed by any onboard computer, set top box, or personal device.
Available for active mini-VSAT Broadband accounts, Iridium Pilot can be added as a secondary system providing pole-to-pole global coverage for data and voice. The Iridium Pilot hardware must be purchased in addition to selecting an Iridium OpenPort airtime plan.
The TracPhone V11-IP is a breakthrough maritime satellite communications product designed for the broadband era and its requirements for onboard networking. Developed by KVH specifically for the industry-leading mini-VSAT Broadband network, TracPhone V11-IP uses a 1.1 m-diameter antenna dish, in a 1.2 m-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 from directly above the vessel to low on the horizon.
KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband network takes a revolutionary approach to maritime satellite communications to maximize data and voice throughput while preventing interference to adjacent satellites. The network is based on ViaSat’s ArcLight Code Reuse Multiple Access (CRMA) spread spectrum technology, which significantly reduces contention issues, transmission delays, and offers more consistent speeds and shorter ping times resulting in faster web page loads compared to traditional Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) technology relied upon by other VSAT networks.
TracPhone V11-IP’s streamlined belowdecks unit includes an IP-enabled antenna control unit, built-in CommBox Network Manager, ArcLight spread spectrum modem, VoIP, Ethernet switch, and Wi-Fi capabilities all in one 2U box for faster, trouble-free installations and user experience.
KVH’s IP-MobileCast content delivery service uses advanced multicasting technology to deliver content “over the top” of the mini-VSAT Broadband network, taking advantage of unused network capacity without impacting the vessel's data speeds or airtime plans. IP-MobileCast uses proprietary software and patented Forward Error Correction (FEC) technology that provides advanced error correction, compression, and validation of data integrity throughout the transmission from shore to ship for reliability and efficiency. Shoreside servers encode files for transmission and queue them for multicast delivery; FEC technology ensures that onboard CommBox servers receive each file in perfect condition the first time it is transmitted. The unique FEC algorithms deliver the highest level of file reliability by accommodating intermittent non-continuous transmission. IP-MobileCast delivers large files, including electronic charts, weather forecasts, training videos, news, sports, IPTV, IP-radio, and premium movies.
KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband 2.0 encompasses advanced technology and digital onboard tools for helping maritime operators increase operational efficiency, improve crew welfare, recruit and retain skilled seafarers, and enhance their security. The solution includes the advanced antenna technology of the TracPhone V-IP series systems; the MPLS security and global coverage of KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband satellite network; the myKVH web portal for managing onboard data usage; and the unique multicasting content delivery of IP-MobileCast.
