Press Release
Wednesday, November 07, 2012

The three-part series offers information for those researching, implementing, or determining the business benefits associated with offshore connectivity.

 

Given the increasing importance of broadband connectivity for vessels at sea, KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) is presenting a three-part webinar series, “SATCOM 101,” to help explain the sometimes confusing world of maritime satellite communications.

The series is directed toward vessel managers, nautical superintendents, maritime IT professionals, operations managers, C-level management in the shipping industry, and other commercial maritime industry professionals.
