Enjoy Global Coverage with KVH TracPhone® V3-IP Paired with Iridium Pilot®
For satellite Internet and phone anywhere in the world, the reliable and economical solution is the KVH TracPhone V3-IP paired with the Iridium Pilot. The 39 cm (15.5 inch) diameter TracPhone V3-IP is the world’s smallest maritime VSAT, designed exclusively for the world’s No. 1 maritime VSAT service – mini-VSAT Broadband. Advanced ArcLight® spread spectrum technology enables the V3-IP’s extremely compact design, while still providing outstanding performance — fast download speeds (up to 2 Mbps), reliable Internet and e-mail, and optimized voice communications. Now, with KVH’s new System Bundle, TracPhone V3-IP is paired with an Iridium Pilot for pole-to-pole coverage, meaning boat owners, guests, and crew can stay in touch with friends, family, and the office from every cruising area in the world.
New Belowdecks Unit Makes it all Easy
TracPhone V3-IP features KVH’s Integrated CommBox Modem (ICM), a streamlined belowdecks unit that includes IP-enabled antenna control unit for easy set-up, built-in CommBox™ Network Manager for onboard networking, ArcLight spread spectrum modem, VoIP adapter, Ethernet switch, and Wi-Fi capabilities all in one 2U-high unit.
With the TracPhone V3-IP/Iridium Pilot System Bundle, the ICM is preconfigured by KVH to ensure seamless integration:
- TracPhone V3-IP and mini-VSAT Broadband service is always chosen first
- If the service becomes unavailable for any reason, onboard LAN and Wi-Fi networks switch to Iridium OpenPort broadband services
