Exclusive Technology

Enterprise-grade Ku-band VSAT Antenna
The TracPhone V7-IP is an advanced VSAT satellite communications product developed by KVH specifically for the mini-VSAT Broadband network. TracPhone V7-IP uses a 60-cm diameter antenna dish, in a 66-cm diameter antenna unit. The 3-axis gyro-stabilized VSAT antenna with a 4th axis of automatic skew adjustment boasts an extended elevation range of -24° to 119° ensuring that the antenna has superior satellite tracking when the unit is in motion.

Integrated CommBox Modem (ICM)
TracPhone V7-IP features KVH’s new streamlined ICM, which 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-high box for faster, trouble-free installations and user experience.

ArcLight® Technology
KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband network takes an advanced technology approach to 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.

End-to-end SATCOM Solution
Choosing mini-VSAT Broadband for satellite communications service provides a unique benefit: the reliability and simplicity of a one-stop solution. KVH operates the mini-VSAT Broadband satellite network, manufactures the TracPhone V-IP series antenna hardware, manages the airtime service, provides pre-sale and after-sale support, and can offer customized solutions and services every step of the way. The result: greater reliability, flexibility, quality, and overall ease of use for the customer.
