New KVH service is for large files

ADVERTISEMENT

Rhode Island-based KVH Industries has debuted its new IP-MobileCast content delivery service for its mini-VSAT Broadband satellite network.



The IP-MobileCast service allows ships to receive large files through satellite links more affordably. These links are designed to allow electronic charts, detailed weather forecasts, e-learning materials, live news and sports clips, movies, IPTV, and IP-radio to be delivered to ships at sea.



The new service is expected to be available later this year, delivering content “over the top” of the mini-VSAT Broadband network in a separate data stream to not impact customers’ contracted data speeds or airtime rate plans.



In other company news, KVH announced that it plans to launch a new IP-MobileCast content delivery service that will deliver Jeppesen’s entire ENC and Professional+ chart databases to mini-VSAT Broadband customers. It is anticipated that this new service will enable automatic delivery of electronic charts over satellite.
