In today’s world, up-to-the-minute information is critical to vessel safety, operation, and business. Fleet managers and ship captains require reliable commercial communications as well as cost-effective data applications including real-time access to e-mail, Internet services, corporate intranets, and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). The KVH TracPhone F77 marine satellite communications system makes this possible, enabling a truly mobile “office at sea”. The TracPhone F77 is an Inmarsat antenna which delivers fast Internet/Intranet connections, video conferencing, and voice/fax service. Plus, you enjoy added flexibility thanks to the TracPhone F77’s compatibility with shipboard PABX systems as well as onboard networks (when connected to an IP router). Now up-to-date weather reports or maritime chart and navigational updates are available virtually anywhere you travel!

In addition, the Inmarsat Fleet F77 service is designed to meet the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) latest distress and safety specifications within the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).
