KVH to add Iridium Certus services to mini-VSAT packages

KVH has announced its intention to offer Iridium Certus services as an L-band companion to its Ku-band TracPhone mini-VSAT Broadband systems. 

The offering will feature Iridium’s highest L-band data speeds of 352/176 kbps (down/up), and will be delivered using Cobham’s 38 cm diameter Sailor 4300 antenna, integrated with the mini-VSAT equipment onboard ship.

Optional least-cost routing capabilities will also be offered to enable automated switching between the two as necessary, the company says.

The Iridium Certus companion package is available for new and existing mini-VSAT Broadband system users, either via standard purchase or as part of an AgilePlans deployment.
