Enjoy Global Coverage with KVH TracPhone® V3-IP Paired with Iridium Pilot®

For satellite Internet and phone anywhere in the world, the reliable and economical solution is the KVH TracPhone V3-IP paired with the Iridium Pilot. The 39 cm (15.5 inch) diameter TracPhone V3-IP is the world’s smallest maritime VSAT, designed exclusively for the world’s No. 1 maritime VSAT service – mini-VSAT Broadband.

TracPhone V3-IP with Iridium Pilot  
Advanced ArcLight® spread spectrum technology enables the V3-IP’s extremely compact design, while still providing outstanding performance — fast download speeds (up to 2 Mbps), reliable Internet and e-mail, and optimized voice communications. Now, with KVH’s new System Bundle, TracPhone V3-IP is paired with an Iridium Pilot for pole-to-pole coverage, meaning boat owners, guests, and crew can stay in touch with friends, family, and the office from every cruising area in the world.

Belowdecks Unit
TracPhone V3-IP features KVH’s Integrated CommBox Modem (ICM), a streamlined belowdecks unit that includes IP-enabled antenna control unit for easy set-up, built-in CommBox™ Network Manager for onboard networking, ArcLight spread spectrum modem, VoIP adapter, Ethernet switch, and Wi-Fi capabilities all in one 2U-high unit.

   
 

With the TracPhone V3-IP/Iridium Pilot System Bundle, the ICM is preconfigured by KVH to ensure seamless integration:

  • TracPhone V3-IP and mini-VSAT Broadband service is always chosen first
  • If the service becomes unavailable for any reason, onboard LAN and Wi-Fi networks switch to Iridium OpenPort broadband services
  • The system automatically switches back to mini-VSAT Broadband airtime service as soon as it is available
  • Both the mini-VSAT Broadband and Iridium OpenPort airtime services are billed through KVH for the customer’s convenience

The ICM also supports KVH’s upcoming IP-MobileCast™ content delivery service, providing multicast delivery of news, movies, and entertainment directly to subscribing boats.
