TracPhone Series Licensing & Authorization

Although satellites provide coverage over large geographic areas, including entire continents and ocean regions, individual countries have laws that require prior authorization of satellite services within their borders and territorial waters. KVH and its satellite partners are diligently working to obtain necessary authority for the mini-VSAT Broadband service in any country our customers are likely to visit worldwide. 

As a general matter, mini-VSAT Broadband services are available in international waters. However, some countries may condition or restrict the use of Ku-band mini-VSAT services within 125 km of their coastline and/or C-band mini-VSAT services within 300 km of their coastline to protect other radio services using the same frequencies as mini-VSAT Broadband terminals. (The dual-band V11 terminal can switch between C-band and Ku-band to maximize service in both bands.) In addition, some countries have a concern about the use of VoIP telephone services within their territorial waters and ports, and thus such services may be restricted outside U.S. and international waters. All vessels must comply with their flagged nation's requirements, which includes, among other requirements, adding the terminal to the vessel's radio license.

The current status of mini-VSAT Broadband's authority for foreign-flagged vessels to operate in and around individual countries is listed below. This list is provided for convenience only and is not binding on KVH, and, while KVH will strive to update this list, KVH has no obligation to do so. You, as the user of the mini-VSAT Broadband services, are responsible for abiding by all national and international rules and regulations and for investigating and ensuring that your use of the mini-VSAT Broadband services is consistent with applicable rules and regulations.
