    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.

    Virtual "Local" Numbers
    The mini-VSAT Broadband voice service offers a fantastic cost-saving option – virtual “local” phone numbers. With this featured option, you may assign up to 5 virtual numbers to your TracPhone V3-IP phone line with calling codes specific to the states or countries of your choice. Share these numbers with your office and business contacts and they’ll avoid long-distance or international calling charges when calling you, regardless of where your boat is operating. Contact KVH’s airtime services group for details.

    TracPhone V3-IP/Iridium Pilot System Bundle
    For pole-to-pole global service with seamless integration, choose the TracPhone V3-IP/Iridium Pilot System Bundle. With this option, TracPhone V3-IP’s Integrated CommBox Modem (ICM) is preconfigured by KVH so the boat automatically chooses TracPhone V3-IP and mini-VSAT Broadband service first, automatically switches to Iridium Pilot’s system and service when backup is needed, and automatically switches back to TracPhone V3-IP and mini-VSAT Broadband as soon as service becomes available again. See product page for details.

    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 V3-IP for least cost routing, the boat’s LAN and Wi-Fi networks will automatically switch from TracPhone V3-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.

    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

World’s Smallest Maritime VSAT Antenna
The TracPhone V3-IP is a breakthrough maritime satellite communications product designed for the broadband era and its requirements for onboard networking.
