KVH TracPhone V11-IP from KVH

One antenna, global coverage

The 3-axis, gyro-stabilized TracPhone V11-IP dual-mode onboard terminal uses a single, small, 1.1-meter antenna to seamlessly access both the C- and Ku-band satellites of the mini-VSAT Broadband SM network for fully global coverage. Unlike competing L-band and Ku-band
solutions that require two terminals joined with a router, the TracPhone V11-IP is a unified solution: one antenna seamlessly providing both C- and Ku-band services and integrated to one streamlined belowdecks unit.

Global Dual-mode Antenna System with Seamless C/Ku-band Coverage and Easy Onboard Networking for World Voyaging Yachts

TracPhone® V11-IP uses one compact 1.1 meter (42.5 inch) diameter antenna to effortlessly access the C- and Ku-band satellites of the world’s No. 1 maritime VSAT network – mini-VSAT Broadband. It seamlessly switches between the services, automatically locking onto Ku-band service in most parts of the world, and immediately switching to C-band service when Ku-band service is unavailable because of geography or extreme weather. Providing truly global coverage, the TracPhone V11-IP ensures always-on broadband connectivity so owners, guests, and crew stay connected no matter where they are cruising.

  • Installation is faster and less costly thanks to the breakthrough design – 85% smaller by volume and lighter than C-band VSATs
  • Fast data speeds – up to 4 Mbps shore-to-ship/1 Mbps ship-to-shore
  • Choice of open, fixed, or metered plans for affordable airtime
  • Airtime activation faster than competitors

KVH CREWlink™ ConnectTwo™
With KVH’s CREWlink ConnectTwo service, customers have the option to offer their crew or charter passengers a dedicated data channel separate from the operational SATCOM channel, but operating through the same VSAT terminal. In addition, each dedicated data channel can also be assigned a separate billing plan for easy service administration and cost management. CREWlink ConnectTwo also offers the flexibility to configure each of the two independent channels on the forward link (shore-to-ship) each with their own performance characteristics such as data rate, monthly data allowance, etc., as defined by each channel’s assigned billing plan. The mini-VSAT Broadband℠ terminal then shares the return link (ship-to-shore) with both channels and will prioritize your choice of channel on the return link to ensure optimal performance.

KVH OneCare Global Support Program
Broadband connectivity at sea represents a vital investment in your maritime operation. KVH OneCare Global Support is a comprehensive array of service offerings, all designed to leverage your investment in our satellite network technology to its fullest. KVH OneCare spans the entire lifecycle of your mini-VSAT Broadband solution, from design and selection of the best possible solution, to the smooth implementation of that solution, and post-deployment services and support to maximize long-term performance.

Iridium Pilot Optional Backup
Available for active mini-VSAT Broadband accounts, Iridium Pilot can be added as a secondary system providing pole-to-pole global coverage for data and voice. The Iridium Pilot hardware must be purchased in addition to selecting an Iridium OpenPort airtime plan. With Iridium Pilot onboard and interfaced with V11-IP for least cost routing, the yacht’s LAN and Wi-Fi networks will automatically switch from TracPhone V11-IP/mini-VSAT Broadband service to Iridium Pilot/Iridium OpenPort service when needed. See details in "Iridium Pilot Optional Backup System for TracPhone V-IP Series".

Global Static IP Addresses
KVH has established a global private terrestrial network that links all mini-VSAT Broadband teleports worldwide. This approach enables us to provide substantially more robust malware, and virus protection along with enhanced network security. Further enhance your network security by adding a new Global Static IP address, which is valid worldwide and designed to help protect your vessel from unwanted network traffic, scans, digital threats, and attacks. This new option also eliminates the need for multiple IP addresses to support different regions of the globe, reducing your monthly costs if your vessel currently uses a static IP with multiple public IPs.

Virtual "Local" Numbers
The mini-VSAT Broadband voice service offers a fantastic cost-saving option – virtual “local” phone numbers. For an additional fee, you may assign up to five virtual phone numbers to each vessel phone line (a total of 2 voice lines with up to 8 virtual local numbers). Each of these numbers can be set up with a different country code and area/city code, allowing people on shore within those regions to avoid international or long-distance charges when they call the vessel.

Premium KVH Vessel Tracking Service
Immediate access to up to a year of yacht track history; latest position and weekly position reports; automatic, secure generation of position reports; in-app purchase only $49 USD per month per yacht. Available via the secure myKVH Portal to all KVH mini-VSAT Broadband subscribers.

Exclusive Technology

Global C/Ku-band VSAT Antenna
The TracPhone V11-IP is a breakthrough maritime satellite communications product designed for the broadband era and its requirements for onboard networking. Developed by KVH specifically for the industry-leading mini-VSAT Broadband network, TracPhone V11-IP uses a 1.1 meter (42.5 inch) diameter antenna dish, in a 1.2 meter (49 inch) diameter antenna unit. The 3-axis gyro-stabilized maritime VSAT antenna with a 4th axis of automatic skew adjustment boasts an extended elevation range of -24° to 119° ensuring that the antenna tracks satellites from directly above the yacht to low on the horizon.

ArcLight® Technology
KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband network takes a revolutionary approach to maritime satellite communications to maximize data and voice throughput while preventing interference to adjacent satellites. The network is based on ViaSat’s ArcLight Code Reuse Multiple Access (CRMA) spread spectrum technology, which significantly reduces contention issues, transmission delays, and offers more consistent speeds and shorter ping times resulting in faster web page loads compared to traditional Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) technology relied upon by other VSAT networks.

Integrated CommBox Modem (ICM)
TracPhone V11-IP’s streamlined belowdecks unit includes an IP-enabled antenna control unit, built-in CommBox Network Manager, ArcLight spread spectrum modem, VoIP, Ethernet switch, and Wi-Fi capabilities all in one 2U box for faster, trouble-free installations and user experience.
