KVH Industries, Inc. report that demand for broadband connectivity is increasing among service providers in the oil and gas industry.

KVH's exclusive mini-VSAT Broadband service is delivered by an interlaced network of 14 Ku-band satellite transponders providing seamless worldwide coverage north of the equator and around all major continents, including most major shipping routes south of the equator.

The manufacturers say that they are meeting the demand for reliable, mobile broadband communications at remote well sites with the new TracPhone® V3-IP terminal for its mini-VSAT Broadbandsm service. The in-motion antenna comes with compact, integrated belowdecks equipment – KVH's new Integrated CommBox™ Modem (ICM), a streamlined unit that includes an IP-enabled antenna control unit, built-in CommBox Network Manager, and ArcLight® spread spectrum modem with IP voice capability, Ethernet switch, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

All of the TracPhone V3-IP's belowdecks equipment is built into a single 2U enclosure. The system is presently on display and available to order at the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers Expo and Annual Meeting in Wichita Falls.

"Introducing the TracPhone V3-IP is a significant development in our ongoing mission to deliver fast, affordable, reliable broadband connectivity to our customers," explains Brent Bruun, executive vice president of KVH's mobile broadband group. "The TracPhone V3-IP offers a complete end-to-end solution for managing a wide range of onsite communications activities for service providers in the oil and gas industry. It delivers data at up to 2 Mbps over mini-VSAT Broadband, a leading VSAT service that is proven in the commercial maritime market. It's similar in size to competing L-band systems, but delivers data at a far lower cost, especially for companies that consume a relatively low amount of data each month."
