KVH and Kognitive Networks have signed an exclusive maritime agreement that will see KVH integrate Kognitive’s range of network and bandwidth management software tools as an integral element of its mobile communication service offerings.
“We are thrilled to be working with Kognitive Networks to deliver robust maritime network and bandwidth management for shipboard operations, crew, owners, and guests over the KVH ONE global hybrid network,” said Chad Impey, Senior Vice President of Global Sales at KVH.
