KVH to offer Eutelsat OneWeb services

Satcom provider KVH has agreed a distribution partnership with Eutelsat OneWeb, a deal which will see KVH offer Eutelsat OneWeb’s LEO connectivity services and supporting terminals to commercial and leisure vessels.

KVH already has its own Ku-band VSAT offering, using the Intelsat network, as well as Starlink LEO connectivity and 5G/LTE GSM services, which can be combined as required under its KVH ONE package.

“Adding Eutelsat OneWeb to our hybrid portfolio helps deliver on our commitment to providing outstanding connectivity, content, and services via our KVH ONE integrated multi-orbit, multi-channel solution,” said Brent Bruun, KVH President and Chief Executive Officer.

“Eutelsat OneWeb’s LEO technology will complement, enhance, and extend our KVH ONE network’s existing hybrid services and enable outstanding low-latency connectivity for mariners worldwide.”

OneWeb’s network compromises more than 630 satellites in low earth orbit, with the company currently expanding its network and ground infrastructure to meet maritime’s global requirements.

“We are thrilled to have KVH onboard as an expert partner to support commercial and leisure vessels to get connected and fully access the benefits of Eutelsat OneWeb’s high-speed internet,” said Carole Plessy, Eutelsat OneWeb’s Vice President for Maritime and Europe.

“In partnership with KVH, we will deliver on customers’ demand for technology and data at a time when there is pressure across the maritime industry to improve sustainability and governance standards and operational performance, all of which is underpinned by good connectivity.”
