NMEA Names KVHI's TracPhone V3 'Best Communication Product'

October 5, 2012

The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) recognizes KHVI for its TracPhone V3, the world's smallest maritime VSAT antenna.

The KVH TracPhone V3 is designed to work with KVH's mini-VSAT Broadband satellite network which KVH built to provide customers with an  alternative to the Inmarsat service.

Due to the mini-VSAT Broadband network's unique spread spectrum technology (similar to that used in the new high-powered 3G and 4G networks on land), KVH was able to develop the TracPhone V3, a system similar in size and cost to Inmarsat FleetBroadband equipment, but offering service up to ten times faster at broadband speeds of up to 2 Mbps, with airtime rates 1/10th the cost of Inmarsat.

The NMEA is the global marine electronics industry's premier trade association and is made up of more than 600 companies including manufacturers, dealers, and boat builders. This is the 14th consecutive year that KVH has won a best product award from the NMEA.
